After many headaches (passports, packing, car rental, etc.), we finally had our family vacation in Orlando. In fact, it was our first vacation since we got married. For shame!
I worried about how my Boo-Boo was going to be on the flight. Luckily, it coincided with his regular nap time. He was actually out like a light when we got up to cruising altitude. Having him run around the boarding area for an hour certainly helped too. There was quite a number of children on board. So, I was surprised (but relieved) that he was able to sleep through the din. What a traveller!
I don’t understand the whole idea of pre-boarding though. I get that it’s convenient for people who need assistance. But, once you get on the plane with your kid and have your stuff stowed away, what do you do for the next 20 minutes before taking off? Have you tried keeping a 15 month toddler in one spot for any length of time? Luckily, there was a fetching two year old girl in the seat in front of us. My son made googly eyes at her until we were up in the air. Such a flirt already.
I think I’m in trouble…
