Keeping it Real…
SO….we were supposed to catch a flight to Maui for my parents 45th wedding anniversary.  We drove out with my parents (the Huz and boys are meeting us later this week and my brother and his family flew in from Portland).  There was a huge traffic delay, even bigger delay at security, a missed train to the gate, and me and Maya missed our flight by minutes.  THANKFULLY my parents made it!!  But…through it all Maya was a total champ!!!  Never once whined, complained, or anything except make me smile.  She ran when I told her we needed to run.  Sat in the umbrella stroller quickly and quietly when I told her she needed to, and pulled me off the ledge when I almost had a breakdown at the gate.  She was my rock and my savior.  I fell in love with her HARD even more after that experience, and for that…I guess I’m thankful.  I wrote this as a post on social media…
I didn’t think I could be more proud to be your Mama or love you any more than I already do. But today…at the airport, when I nearly lost my sh*t looking at our airplane sitting in front of us… The gate slowly pulling away from the door… The plane that held our luggage, your car seat, and Meme and BOPO… YOU were the epitome of positive attitude and sweetness. Saying one thing after another that lifted my spirit and reminded me that everything will be ok. “Just take a deep breath, Mama.  It will all be ok!”  Not once did you cry, even though I was on the verge. Not once did you complain, yet I did… I’m embarrassed that I got so worked up, when in reality… as long as I have you, I’m better off than most. Love you so much Peanut!!! Tomorrow-Maui here we come. No, really…I mean it this time :)”
She is amazing.
