I’m so upset!
In my big air of productivity during the last week, I managed to finally get my act together to change little E’s name. Which you would think would be a great thing right? Since I’ve only been waiting a couple years to do it right? Well being the idiot that I am I didn’t think it through and so I went to the registry office with all my paper work signed all nice and proper. All my i’s dotted and t’s crossed. I had all my supporting documents… everything. I thought all my ducks were in a row.
What I didn’t think about though, was how when I handed in my supporting papers, which included little E’s birth certificate, I might need them during the next 4-6 months, which is how long the name change will take.
I didn’t consider that I might need it to get little E a new passport for when I’d like to take my kids on this great trip I’ve been looking forward to for months.
Now when I pulled out our passports tonight to finally book the perfect 7 night, all-inclusive, cruise with stops in Jamaica… guess what?
Yep. Little E’s passport is expired. Meanwhile Z and mine? Perfectly fine. Like what are the ridiculous odds. Little E is now 7 and has already had 2 passports, both chock-full of stamps, and now I have to get him a third. Yet I can’t because I had to surrender his birth certificate up in order to change his name.
Which means my 30th birthday cruise? Is a no go.
I’m so disappointed in myself. I’ve actually been looking forward to that so much.
It’s just… frustrating yet again.
