Whoo Hoo! We're leaving for Orlando tomorrow morning at the crack of dawn!
I can't believe I've kept this a secret from the girls this whole time. Some of you may not now, but I have a BIG mouth.
In the past I've let a few things slip without thinking. One time I broke the news of a friend's pregnancy to another friend who didn't know yet. I felt horrible.
I'm working on it. This whole ordeal was a test of my blabber mouth for sure.
I've got just about everything packed. I started loading up the suitcases in secret a few days ago.
The other day we were at the grocery store and I bought some of those cheapy rain ponchos. Mina was pretty curious as to why I would buy such a thing when she and her sister have perfectly good raincoats hanging in their closets.
"It might rain." is all I told her, and she was satisfied with the answer.
My Mom is headed down here this afternoon, and I think we're going to sit the girls down after dinner and tell them what's up.
I was going to wait until we woke them up tomorrow morning to tell them, but I really want them to find out at the same time.
Yeah, they probably won't sleep very well tonight, but I think telling them tonight will get their little booties moving a little faster tomorrow morning. Considering we have to leave the house by a quarter to 5am, this is a good thing.
I'm going to catch their reaction to the news on video.
It should be posted tonight.
