Continued from San Antonio Day 2 Part 1.
After about 40 min, we got done with our boat tour. That wasn’t so bad of a way to kill 40min with two kids. It’s a little bit past 5, time to eat. Lucky for us, there’s a well rated restaurant right above those stairs, just next to where we got dropped off from the boat.
Maybe it wasn’t the best idea to bring the kids here. It’s well rated, but it’s more like a pub than a kid friendly restaurant. CL also got so fussy sitting in her high chair that I had to take her outside and walk around with her right after wolfing down my meal. Then we all took turns taking the kids out so everyone in our group could eat something.
We were so tired, I think we were out less than an hour before calling it quits. When we came back to the room, the first thing I had noticed was the smell of poop! Also, both of the girls were still awake and crying…oh shit. Apparently while we were downstairs, the kids decided to poop one after another. Then after they pooped they decided they didn’t want to sleep. Poor grandma had to take care of all that by herself…
Couldn’t leave stinking poop in the room, so I had to take it down to the hotel lobby to see if I can ask someone where I can find a dumpster. There were a lot of newly arrived guests and I kept on waiting for an employee to free up….finally I just said screw it and dropped off this bag of shit in the trashcan in front of the hotel. Good enough.
Of course, now that the girls are still awake, we had to do bedtime routine all over again and listen to them cry about not wanting to sleep. Ahhh, parent life…We ended up having to take CL to my parent’s room because the girls kept feeding off each others awakeness. PL finally went to sleep about 40 min after the “separation”. Thank goodness we had a room(and grandparents) to separate them into.
But there’s more. It’s Saturday night and it’s a busy night at a hotel. We got a new neighbor in the next room and they’ve got the TV on so loud it’s keeping us from sleeping. Finally it was decided that RL will go next door to complain since it’s hard to say no to a pregnant lady with two young kids. They kind of turned the sound down a little…maybe.
When we had picked up the kids early from school on Friday, we were presented with a dilemma. They don’t usually have accidents at school, but for some reason, both of them combined had 5 accidents in one day…WTF. We decided to leave the soiled clothing at school and just pick it up on Monday. So here we go, cleaning shit soiled pants that’s been marinating in a bag for 5 days…welcome home us!
