Before I forget - I'm so glad to hear there are baby ipods - thank you!! Target here I come!!!
Today Patrick and I were rebel parents once again. We were all really bored in the tiny room and after seeing my 10th little bug crawling around I had to get the hell out of there!!! Plus, I thought maybe sunshine and fresh air would help Drew's congestion and cough. I'll preface the rest of this by saying it was about 65 degrees today and sunny.
Drew was wearing his usual two shirts, two pants (one with feet), socks and slippers - more than enough clothes for a sunny, 65-degree day. So, we put on his little hat and got ready to leave the room and Tonya said, "You need a coat for him."
Patrick just looked at her and said, "No, he's fine. We're not putting a coat on him."
"But the orphanage workers will get angry," Tonya said.
"Well, he'll be fine," Patrick said...and out Drew went...
He had a great time with dad pushing him on the Merry-Go-Round (which had no seatbelt in it - you'd think they would be more concerned about that!!). He also liked just being outside and seeing the sun.
When we went back inside, we learned that Drew likes to stick out his tongue at us, and lunge at us with his arms out for us to catch him - he was soo funny!!!
After our visit, Patrick and I went back to the restaurant in the nearby hotel where they didn't want to wait on us a few days ago (if you remember from my previous blog entry). This time there were other people there, so it went well. Of course the people at the next table, who were from somewhere in Europe, were talking loudly about how most Americans can't find their own country on a map and how most of us don't know that there's a country called Georgia, as well as a state.
So, after glaring at them, I sort of loudy said, "I'm an American and I can find my country on a map and I know that there's a country and a state called Georgia." Well, they stopped talking about Americans and started stereoptyping people of other nationalities.
Yes, it really is time to come home I think!!!!!! :)
I forgot to comment on the Colts-Pats game we missed this past weekend - wow!!! Jodi and Ron - you guys must be psyched - 8-0. The '72 Dolphins are getting worried...
