The Mother Instinct

After three stressful days of travel (read: no sleep), I was so happy to come home to my babies - Lucky, Snickers, and Ron Burgundy. I wasn't gone that long, but spent all but a few hours in airports and stuck on runways with my knees in my mouth (yeah, no legroom for me in coach), and developed an endless fascination for the choreography of plane de-icers.

I people-watched for hours, wondering how many passengers spent more on airport food than they spent on their tickets.

I had the pleasure of worshiping with my baby girl at church, hanging out for an evening with my baby boy, and I passed my big boy on the highway on the way home, so I think I scored big.

And praise the Lord for getting me home after a less than seamless trip. Home with your babies is all that really matters. So here's your feel-good video for the day (thanks, Rach)! Only in Iowa.

Awwww. That baby baboon being taken care of by it's mother's killer was unreal!

Sweet scenes for a Monday Morning.

Airports are great for people-watching, aren't they? Which is good, because they really aren't all that great for much else.

Loved the video, and glad you had a great trip!

I get nervouse just reading the words "de-ice." So glad you made it home safely Candy. The comment about your knees being in your mouth on the plane made me laugh. Sorry I found humor in that at your expense. We short gals don't have those worries - but sometimes our feet don't touch the floor and that is in itself a problem. LOL.
