One tiny upside of this unexpected trip back to the U.S. is that Flynn has had the opportunity to spend some time in the U.S. Sure he lived stateside for his first two months, but that was like 3/4 of a lifetime ago. Ancient history to an eight month old. Truth be told, he’s adjusting just fine. He loves freeze dried fruit from Trader Joe’s. He can’t imagine anything more fun than riding the Metro. Except maybe watching construction workers out the window. Me, however, I’m still getting the hang of things.
We don’t encounter a lot of shopping carts in Benin, so sue me. But trust me, I can drape a mosquito net like a pro.
