Today Stella and I getting on a plane and heading back to North America to visit my parents. This is exciting for many reasons, not the least of which is UNLIMITED FREE BABYSITTING.
After confirming my travel dates with my parents, they were like, "Oh, yeah, about that. See, ummmm, three days after you arrive, we're going up to the cottage with our friends and YOU CAN'T COME. SEE YA!" So, as a consolation prize, my two sisters and brother-in-(common)-law are coming down from Canada and we're all staying home alone at my parents' house with Stella. We will be reliving old times, throwing an epic party that will be attended by us and the two elderly dogs. But there will be unlimited popsicles!
That, or we will be calling my parents crying and raging at each other and demanding that the parental units mediate a savage sisterly dispute over who gets to be the boss of the TV remote control.
Can't wait to see you, family! (I am the TV decider.)
