Hello from Rome! I’m writing this in our hotel bathroom while Brad’s out filming, and Lucy’s sleeping. You know, living the life of luxury over here. 😉 Brad has had this work-trip planned to film in Italy for a while now, and last minute he decided to use his sky mile points to have Lucy and I come along! Best birthday present EVER. Seriously, its my birthday on Saturday. 😉 We braved the long flight with our 18 month old Lucy, and it actually went a lot smoother than I thought! She slept for 5 of the 8 hours (thanks to the king size pillow we laid across our laps… It was a GAME CHANGER!) and watched Mickey Mouse and Daniel Tiger for pretty much the other 3 hours. I am so proud of her, I could cry! We arrived to Rome and I felt like I was going to DIE. Seriously. I get the worst jet lag when I fly to Europe… I need someone to follow me and flick my eyeballs so I don’t fall asleep hahaha. SO we immediately got dressed and went sight seeing! We were making fun of people with selfie sticks (They are EVERYWHERE here!) until we gave in an BOUGHT ONE! Hahahahah Well, it was my brother Trevor who bought it — but it actually turned out to be way rad?? I’m still laughing over it.
Lucy slept most of the time while walking around which was a HUGE mistake…. I’m pretty sure we only slept for three hours last night because she kept jumping all over Brad and I with a ton of energy “Mommmmy! … Dadddddy!” Hahah I went and walked her around the pool at 1am hoping she would konk out… But I looked down and here eyes were wide open — NOOOO! Hahahha. It’s okay though. We didn’t plan anything too big for these first few days, because we knew it would take a while for us to adjust to the time. So we ended up wheeling Lucy’s crib into the bathroom and letting her cry it out — she only cried for five minutes, and I was thinking “Why didn’t we do this hours ago!?” – I’m just too much of a softy. Anyway, I’m praying that we have a better night sleep tonight! Fingers crossed!
