Vacation, the Beach & Good Manners

VaCaTiOn is wonderful! No work for 11 days straight is cOOl enough but throw in two trips to the beach in the middle of that and I am one happy MoMMa! We had LOTS of fun in Disney World and Sea World. Despite feeling totally exhausted at the end of the second day it was an exciting weekend and a fantastic start to our vacation. Arielle is getting at least 2-3 less hours of sleep than she is used to getting on a daily basis and it starts to take a toll on ALL of us around 5 pm until bedtime. This is NOT a fun part about vacation but we are all trying to work around it.
She is so HAPPY to be spending time with GaBy, tEE & NiPs and is doing everything in her power to impress them. Something she has not been impressing anybody with is her manners, which is to be expected of a 3 year old, however I am working frantically to teach her to have good ones. Just a couple of hours ago when we were saying goodnight she told me, "I'm going to use good manners everyday and I'm going to sing the good manners song so I remember." She even found a way to incorporate Please, Thank You and Sorry into our bedtime routine. It was a great end to another day on our vacation and I can't wait to wake up in the morning and spend another day at the beach!

I'm jealous! I would love to be on the beach right now. Instead of here in 42 degree weather with a cold. :(
Glad you're having fun, and I know how that loss of sleep thing goes, Imani doesn't do well with losing sleep!
