    Re: As Deep as the Ocean...

    What a great trip, I love the way you write. I know this was over months ago,but thank you so much for letting my day late and dollar short a** know about it.

    Of course I have to put my 2 cents in....

    These are my favorites of all the adorable pictures of Imanni (Forever in my mind as My Twin [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/blushing2.gif[/img] Lucky me [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/inlove1.gif[/img]) I love the way in the first one he seems to be cautiously making sure that Caribbean water is pretty much the same he has in his tub. That's right Cappy, you make sure about everything before you dive in!





    I also must add that he might have loved Jamaica, but that boy's smile when he got back home says that's where his heart is. That's a testament to how you are raising him, girl. Remember that.



    You brought back so many sweet memories about summer of '03, the same trip I met Mr. Jahb. I have such a clear picture of you and HIM in the water together, always talking, always connecting. What I wouldn't give to go back then for one day. Aye sah....

    I fell asleep last night at 3:30, trying to pretend the birds outside were tree frogs, and finally feeling Jamaica after so long. It was so great you got to see HIM again, if only to remind yourself that such a connection is possible. This sight tore me up.




    Thanks again and I hope you get back soon! [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/iluvu.gif[/img]

    Now I went out and bought this dang umbrella stroller thinking I can control Imanni in the crowds/lines if I have him strapped down [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    The boy wants no part of it.

    Hi Bandana,

    It only took me about a month to finish this report. [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/blush.gif[/img] But I'm finally done.

    Thanks for sharing your trip. Your BIG man is cute as ever. Loved his videos.

    Great photos, great writing, looks like lots of fun.

    Mokatee [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/blushing2.gif[/img] Girl, if only I had stayed a little longer... To meet you and Vi, I would have been in heaven. Good people and Jamaica are some of the best things God made! [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/icon_hug.gif[/img]


    Shug [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70459-hugs.gif[/img] I loved your report too, and your ability to stay positive come what may, absolutely shines!! [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/notworthy.gif[/img]


    Vi if I had to choose between your company and cooked food, girl I would starve!! [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif[/img]

    Beautiful Bandy [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/icon_hug.gif[/img]

    I shared in your excitement along the way with countdown and pmís [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/yahoo.gif[/img] And then the time finally came and you were off to Jamaica.... [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/breakdance.gif[/img]

    While you were writing your report, I was creating my own vacation memories.

    When I returned, your report was the first item of business. I printed it in its entirety cause I didnít want to miss a thing [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70388-shameonyou.gif[/img]

    It kept me company on the days when I was at home sick [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/feelsick.gif[/img] and I tired of watching court shows and insurance commercials. When I returned to the land of the living, your report got me through the incline and resistance levels on the treadmill and elliptical [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/discosmilie.gif[/img]. I couldnít stop reading [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/yahoo.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/proud_jamaica.gif[/img]

    Many times I laughed [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/704555_dwl.gif[/img]as well as felt your frustrations [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/crybaby.gif[/img]

    Many times I just closed my eyes and thought back to how I felt when I encountered certain situations that were similar to those you described.

    I totally enjoyed and loved every moment in your report [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif[/img] Iím so happy for you to have some ďmeĒ time this trip. And so so glad that you found "him" again, that was very touching. And your description of the memories and when you saw him again...very endearing.

    The last full day is always full of wonderment, including panic attacks [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/helpsmilie.gif[/img] Or in my case, first full day when my travel mates usually loose me (monk said I need a GPS) [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/nahnahnay.gif[/img]

    And you spent time with Swedish and others, I tried so hard to link up with my friend before she left. I even missed the opportunity to link up with the two of you while you were in LA [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/frown.gif[/img]

    Iím with Immani on the coconut [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/sick.gif[/img], I ate and drank it out of not wanting to hurt someone feelings, I shoulda been selfish!

    I look forward to the excitement of your future trips.

    Thank you for sharing your feelings in an honest report.

    Bless you for all the playful pics and videos too [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70409-waytogo.gif[/img]

    Bandy...wonderful report. I haven't caught up but Immani is too cute. It was nice to see NBCC and Carol in your report. They were super nice to me too when I was with the Mess. I really appreciate them being nice to the mommas. Ohh and everybody also thought the Mess' Daddy was Jamaican.
    [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70409-waytogo.gif[/img]Peace and Blessings [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70409-waytogo.gif[/img]

Oh my. I can picture you watching your visit come to an end as you gazed out the window and sang every now and then. I did the same.

    Thank you for sharing your and Imanniís wonderful trip with us. I give you props for doing the mommy and toddler vacation thing. You did good. I think little boys may be more challenging on vacations then girls. I took mine when he was older and lawd what the child put me through.

    The pictures of Imanni are priceless. Heís truly an adorable one on two feet. And honeybun, it was really nice finally seeing one of you too! Iím soooo glad you like NBCC, my favorite Negril home away from home.

    So wish our paths could have cross this timeÖoh so close! We definitely have to try to make it happenÖsoon. Bravo on the report, Bandanna [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/icon_hug.gif[/img]
