10 Random Things Learned on Vacation December 29, 2007

Filed under: Random Life Moments — thediaperdiaries @ 10:29 am


  1. Big Jackie O sunglasses while very fashionable and Hollywood, aren’t the best look once you’ve sunburned your face. Think major raccoon.
  2. A 4 year old girl is able to make friends with any other 4 year old girl and immediately pretend to be mermaids, princesses, barbies, etc. They will play all day and become the best of friends despite knowing each other 2 minutes.
  3. It is always a plus when said 4 year old’s new best friend has a grandpa who keeps buying rounds of drinks.
  4. No one gave my kids the memo that vacation=sleeping in, therefore 6 am wake up calls are unacceptable.
  5. Going to bed nightly at 9 pm makes the 6 am wake up calls not so bad.
  6. Shaving your legs should be optional on vacation, which is a major bummer when you are in a swimsuit everyday.
  7. It is very annoying when people get up at 8 am to lay towels on multiple chairs and then not reappear until 3 pm.
  8. I wish my sister-in-law would start having kids so she will have a post kids body too. I mean, so I can be a loving aunt.
  9. When the car rental place tells you they are renting you an 8 person van- don’t believe them. Unless the 8 people are midgets or people who don’t mind being strapped to the roof.
  10. Although today is supposed to be a post for the weekly “Challenge,” there is nothing more challenging then trying to have any sort of quality couple time then when your kids are on an air mattress right next to the bed and your parents are right on the other side of the door.

    Next time have your kids sleep in your parent’s room. Gotta have your Christmas goose!

  2. You are such a slacker! Isn’t there a bathroom in that joint?

    haha. I like the suggestions above! We head to Florida in a few days…may have to resort to them and get creative. 🙂

  4. Courtney Says:

    Oh, now you KNOW we need pictures of the “tan lines” on your face. And if you provide, you will officially be given a reprieve from shaving your legs for a week! 🙂

    Sounds like you had fun!

  5. Irene Says:

    Wow, the Caymans. I was there years ago with my parents. Although I was 20 something and I was actually depressed that I was in such a gorgeous romantic place…. with my parents. I would like to go back, this time with my husband.

    I does sound wonderful, but I know my kids would be like yours – rise and shine at ungodly hours.

  6. Kathy in WA Says:

    Ah, I’m living vicariously through you here in rainy Washington. Glad someone had sunshine over the holidays. 🙂

  7. SAHMmy Says Says:

    There’s something to be said for Non-Adjoining rooms! Sounds like a perfect Christmas vacation!
