So tonight is the last night in Guangzhou. Even though this is the best hotel I've stayed in for the whole trip with a super awesome breakfast buffet...I have to say that I can't WAIT to get home. Tomorrow we go to the consulate and do the swearing in ceremony. Then we fly out to Beijing. We spend the night there and fly home early the next morning.
We took our red couch picture today. Grace looked super cute. Later I'll explain why ours was only by ourselves.
We also visited the Children's Hospital to see about oxygen for the plane...that in itself could be a blog...imagine Grand Central Station with parents and children and cashier/pharmacy/information booths with crazy lines that really aren't lines with little boys peeing in the courtyard and parents holding these broomstick like poles that held the IVs for their children. One word...CHAOS...the doctor didn't give Grace a prescription for O2 but gave her sedative like meds if she freaks out. I hope I don't have to give them to her.
I've started learning how to deal with my daughter's temper tantrums. I sit next to her but I turn my back on her. She finally stops. She loves to throw things and slap things so we're working on those issues too. I got her to sleep but she always has a meltdown right before. She doesn't want to go to sleep and frankly I can't blame her. She doesn't know what she might be waking up to.
This will probably be my last blog from China. I'll be busy packing and getting ready to leave.
All in all, this was a VERY interesting trip.
