A quick hello and why I'm going to kick the TSA in the groin

You may notice things are a bit quiet around here... Fred and I have taken the kids out west and we're hanging in SF for the next week and a bit. The posts might be a bit sparse because I'm blogging from the iPad, which is painful when it comes to formatting. First world problems, right?

You do need to come back, though. I have a doozy of a story about the TSA at DFW airport, and how they watched Elise cry for 45 minutes, refused to accommodate my requests, suggested that  we didn't need to check Elise's BG when she said she felt low and ultimately made us miss our flight.

Somehow, this pregnant D-mama's head didn't explode, but someone is going to get a talking to when I get home.

And this morning I woke up to a fun surprise... My blog was featured on Disney's Website along with Meri and Hallie! You can go here to check it out.  Thanks Kim for such a nice write-up!


  1. That's outrageous! :( Hope you have a great trip!

  2. amazing your head (or someone else's!!) didn't explode!

    the stupidity of some people is just astounding.

    hope you have a wonderful trip!

    congrats on the Disney write up!!

  3. My head would have exploded for sure! Look forward to hearing all about it. The write up was fab just like your blog. Have a great time enjoying your family. xoxo

  4. wow, I loved reading about YOU on her blog! "I KNOW her, That's my friend Joanne" I wanted to yell!
    looking forward to your doozy of a story, I think.

  5. You need to kick the TSA in their groin! Glad you are getting away. Sorry you had to deal with those you know whats.

  6. Oh no. Nervous (but can't wait) to read the TSA story.

  7. Did you hear that?

    Pretty sure that THUNDEROUS BANG was a swift kick to the groin from our very own super mama, JO!!!!

    Of course you're on Disney! Cuz you ROCK, that's why :)

  8. Have fun on your trip Jo...and cannot wait for the TSA story.

  9. Yuck! I'm so sorry to hear you had a rough time with TSA.

    FYI for your return trip: most airports don't make kids go through the body photo machines. They usually have them go through the good old fashioned ones that just detect metal. Pods do not set these machines off. I don't even mention that Ava is wearing a device. I figure if they detect it they will do their thing. If they don't we are out of security very quickly. We've gone through security 8 times since December and the pod has never been detected. Have fun on your trip!!

  10. hope you're having a fabulous trip and the flight home is nothing like the flight out. Take care and enjoy the fam :)

  11. Can't wait to hear this TSA story! My blood is already boiling!

  12. I can't wait to read it either. And I'm so sad it happened in my hometown. Send the details and I'll do what I can from Big D to kick some groin.
