Put a Cork In It!

Tee-hee…I couldn’t resist a little pun. It doesn’t really go with this post (because I opted not to blog about the woman whose face I wanted to smack tonight when she belittled my “job” as a stay at home mom and my “hobby” as a “writer”…pardon the excess quotation marks!). But this post is all about Cork, the place!

We spent the weekend with Mom in Cork, Ireland, and had an absolutely incredible time. For the most part, the weather cooperated, and I cannot believe what a great job the kids did! We tried hard to pay attention to their cues and their needs, and instead of running around like chickens with our heads cut off, we set realistic goals for what we could accomplish in a given day.

It was incredible. Except for the last day when the girls were starting to wear down, and the flights home (Why did we try to do a connection? Haven’t we learned?), they were really good. In fact, someone even commented to us at a restaurant that the girls were so well behaved.

They really are growing up…sigh!

I haven’t taken the time to upload the pictures yet. We did a driving tour of Cork City, spent a day in Cobh, walked around Youghal, and visited Blarney Castle and kissed the Blarney Stone. Hopefully, I’ll have some photos for you to look at later this week.

So, expect Cork to come to you in the next few days. And to the woman who doesn’t get what a stay at home mom and writer does all day long…stick a Cork in it!
