The last time the fam and I went to NY, Isla turned six months old on the trip.  One of my ‘things’ has been to push for plan another trip before she goes to ‘big school’ in August.


Already discussing all the books she wants to buy on THE TRIP.

Well.  We tried to get the two weeks before school starts, but that didn’t happen.  And so.  Missing her first week of big school to hang out with her Nana and ‘Mumma’s people’ who don’t actually live on the phone and the computer.  Who knew?

My factor-50 husband will probably melt in the heat but I don’t care.  We are all very excited.

The thing is this.  I love New York.  And I’m quite fond of all the people who knew me before I was 12.  And people I met in my 20s who might as well have.

It’s gonna be weird for me to do summer on Long Island stuff with Isla.

This time my Mom is the Nana, Isla’s the kid, and my grandparents aren’t there.  I’ll try not to cry, but I can’t promise anything.

So, in the next few weeks, the blog will be trip plans.  And stuff.

Already planning my plane reading, too.  And that’s where you guys come in.  This week’s 3 Books, 3 Blogs is where you recommend stuff to me!

What should I read on the plane?

And who else do you know who blogs about trying to live in two places at once?  Or something.

Next week, I’ll return the favor.
