Sometimes life doesn't go according to plan. Sometimes you find yourself on a road you never imagined you'd travel. Sometimes it can scare the pants off you. This is the story of how our little family came to be, continues to grow and how we (attempt to) manage the chaos.

Feelin' like a kid again
Okay, not really, but with the number of immunizations I got today, sort of. I went in to my travel clinic appointment thinking I was pretty well set for international travel being that I have had all the childhood, Hepatitis B, A, and even Rabies immunizations, but there were four I still needed to get. So, typhoid - check, menningococcal - check, polio - check, yellow fever - check. Both my helpers were along today and Esen was being extremely..... well.....five, but redeemed himself when the nurse came in with the shots. He climbed up on the table, grabbed my hand and said "Mommy, you don't need to cry, it will be done fast." He always knows just when to turn on the charm. Those were some pricey, non-insured immunizations, though! I think my pocketbook hurts more than my arms!!
