Brain Overload

I think my brain has overloaded.  I am reading all these lovely posts from fellow bloggers about the great things they are doing and I can't think of a single thing to say. That is why I haven't blogged for a while. I didn't want to bore everyone to tears.  But now I'm doing it anyway in the hope that the sheer act of writing something will unleash a torrent of unbelievably smart and witty content......looks like I've totally failed :(

First Plane Trip

Three out of my four kids went on their first plane trip yesterday.  We had such a great time.  It is so much fun watching their expressions and seeing them so excited.  Miss 13 was a little nervous (not at all helped my Miss 11 constantly pointing out plane crash stories for the last 2 weeks) but she put on a brave face and actually relaxed and enjoyed it after a while.  I am so proud of her.  Of course Mr 8 was the usual bundle of energy but at least he didn't cause too much trouble.  I was half expecting to be escorted from the plane but he was well behaved and had a great time.  He is looking forward to going again!  Unfortunately he seems to have inherited my ears....oh my gosh they were so sore as the plane was descending.  I was chewing gum so hard I thought my teeth might detach from my gums!  If any of you lovely ladies have a tip on how to make your ears behave normally while in a plane, please let me know....and quickly because Mr 8 is bouncing off the walls in anticipation of another trip!
