IT’S SUMMERTIME! Everyone get up! Let’s dance!
My back is better, so now we must calypso!
Not only are we counting coconuts, Matt and I are counting down the days until we take our annual family vacation to SESAME PLACE! As you know, I love Sesame Place not only because it’s super manageable with young kids or because every time I see Super Grover a burst out crying with joy, but also because every woman there has given birth at least once so it’s a judgement free zone in the swimsuit department. May not be the sexiest place on earth, but who really cares about sex appeal when you’re rambling down Big Bird’s Lazy River with remnants of chicken fingers in your hair and a five year old clinging to your neck because he refuses to believe that there are in fact NO alligators hiding on the rides waiting to eat him? Not I.
Besides if you’ve been married as long as I have, you’ll know that after a point it doesn’t really matter if you look flawless in a swimsuit, at long as you smell at least a little like fried chicken. And thank God my kids and their filthy little hands always make sure that happens.
This vacation is being made possible by the letter Q, the number 6, and by the fact that we’ve got a hell of a team running the Robicelli’s show. So good, in fact, that this year Matt and I are getting to sneak away for a whopping FOUR WHOLE DAYS! However I still run our entire social media department, so expect my blogging to be spotty, as I refuse to pay a surcharge for WiFi at hotels. Honestly, why not just make me pay for oxygen while you’re at it. Sheesh.
