I have been asked if I'm getting excited for our upcoming trip to Hawaii,
to be honest...no. I'm not and probably won't be until that plane lands there - all I keep thinking about is the potentially nightmare-ish 5 hour flight with a highly active toddler who HATES being confined to a small space. There is only so much stuff I can bring to keep her busy. Last time we flew with her, she was only 5 months old and was totally happy nursing, sleeping and snuggling the whole flight.
A totally different ball game this time around.
I've received great tips from other moms and I'm crossing my fingers it all goes smooth, for the sake of everyone's sanity. We have another flight coming up soon...slightly shorter, which I'm considering the "practice one" seeing how she'll do on this one will better prepare me for the longer one to Hawaii.
