Travel with Baby: Turks & Caicos

La Petite Peach_Turks 15

Wesleigh, and I joined my mom for a “girls only” vacation this weekend to Turks and Caicos. The weather was of course, perfection. After the craziness of the holidays, it was the perfect time to get away…

I thought I would be totally stressed chasing around Wesleigh, but honestly I think she was feeling the Island vibes because she was a total peach. Yes, she fell and scraped her knee’s when I took her for a walk, and YES SHE picked her nose when I tried to get a cute shot of her in her new swinsuit…but my mantra all weekend was…”shes a baby”. I lowered my expectations as to how I thought she “should” behave, and tried to keep my cool when she was running around trying to get into things she shouldn’t.  Traveling with a baby is not as hard as it can be…

by the way she is sipping a grapefuit and mint mocktail

Wesleigh is wearing a green Tuk-Tuk Anouk romper, Gap Kids hat, Jen’s Pirate Booty cover up, Swim suits from Childrensalon here and here, Sole-less shoes from Forever Soles, and dress from Pirapir.

Motherhood Monday/Lost in the City

I was in Boston last week, and I did something so ridiculous.

Wesleigh and I where in the city for the day, then spent the night after a delicious meal with a great friend.

The next morning I went to one of the coziest coffee shops for a brain storming session with a new blogger friend  (if you don’t read the Boston Day Book, you should asap). Wesleigh and I decided to walk there, it was literally 5 degrees. Since she screamed the last two blocks, and was a total baby-cicle, I decided to “Uber it” back to Beacon Hill.

What happened next is a blur. I got back to the hotel, and realized that we DID NOT have Wesleigh’s blanket (pictured above). The one she has had since a newborn, the blanket that we definitely had on the way there. I called the front desk-nothing, followed by my Uber driver-nothing, and then finally the cafe…NOTHING! I left my name/number JUST IN CASE someone turned it in. Then…5-7 minutes of crying like a baby-me, not Wesleigh.

Confession-I did this with Luke too when he was the same age, the only good thing is that he had two blankets that where exactly the same, and I lost the “newer” one and not the one he had as a newborn.

I am pretty sure this was an official “mommy melt-down”?!

But I stopped freaking out pulled it together, and decided on the way home, I would drive the car down Newbury Street, and look for the blanket. I was hoping it would be there, but was prepped for the worst. When I got there, I actually/seriously, found it. It was 50 feet from the cafe, and in the middle of the road. I stopped the car, ran through the middle of the road to get it, and then danced back to the car.

Every bad experience has a lesson. I hate this saying, but it’s so true. From now on we are traveling with a special “travel” blanket, so that the original can stay SAFE AT HOME! Have you ever done anything like this? Please say yes…
