My boobs were my tools of the trade for almost 20 months.

Once my youngest daughter weaned herself from the Magical Boob Juice, the fun really began!

(And by fun we all know I mean chaos!)

Pull up a chair, sit a while, read a few pages.

Keep and open mind and a joyful heart and you too can get pumped into the world of The Milk Maid.

Mish Mash Part 2

Without boring you with tons of details, on the cruise we basically ate, drank, and slept. Faith swam a lot. We never made it to the pool, which was fine- we were very busy chasing a very fast toddler. Who has time to sun buns when Ava is doing her rock star around the ship tour anyways?

Progresso, Yucatan was our first stop... I did manage to don a swimsuit for that outing into the ocean, so the bikini wax wasn't a total waste. We ate tacos and enchiladas, drank beer and tequila shooters, and walked around the little town buying the occasional random trinket.

Cozumel was next... we went to the same restaurant that Jef and I had visited 2 previous times and had (you guessed it) the same gigantic plate of tacos like we'd had on our honeymoon and 1st anniversary trips. We bought a mermaid and baby statue, Faith got a rock turtle, we drank more beer and a couple margaritas, and Ava snoozed in her stroller for most of the afternoon.

The next (and last) day was a sea day. Faith took off with friends, Jef and I went up to a large open area (bar-adjacent) and let Ava play and run around. Later that night we let Ava doze off to sleep, gave Faith one of our cell phones and the TV remote and instructed her to call us if Ava woke up while we were gone. And then we hit the casino!!

I headed for the $1 slots, plunked $10 in... and a few minutes later won $180!!! Jef tried his hand and did really well also... we left the casino ahead of the game- for once- and about that time the phone rang. Ava was up, so we sprinted for the room.

Faith managed to get Ava back to sleep before we got there... in fact, Ava was sound asleep on top of Faith in the bed. I scooted her to one side, Faith snuggled in beside her, and we all dozed off to sleep.

It was a fabulous trip. One we will never forget! I will try to get some pictures up this weekend... if I can stay awake long enough.

Oh yeah- and Happy Birthday to my Big J!!!! Love you badez~
