Boy are My Arms Tired

We just got back from flying with her for the first time. And boy, are my arms tired. Bah-dumb-dumb.

At 8 monhts, she did well on the plane. We made sure to have bottle and/or juice and pacifier at the ready. She cried as we started descents both legs heading up, but did great coming back. Working my DaddyFu, I was able to shush her to sleep both times, so she slept through the landing. Including the DaddyFu in the airport during lay over, I think I’m still behind on manna points.

Her favorite part of flying was circling through the bumpy weather at Dallas/Ft. Worth yesterday. We hit a particularly bumpy spot. Mommy and Daddy didn’t enjoy it, but she had a great big grin on her face. Uppsie Doodle at 20K feet! Wheeeee!

We took a car seat with us, as we’d purchased a seat for her. I highly recommend that, rather than keeping them on your lap. It can be difficult if they start squirming around, the plane can’t land, it’s a bumpy ride and you can’t get up and you have a full bladder. Tickets are only half price.

I also recommend packing everything you need, then leaving behind half of your stuff. It’ll make carrying the kid’s stuff through the air port a lot easier. You won’t get a chance to listen to the iPod anyway. And you’re on vacation! Why do you need that laptop?

Oh. And Airplanes, against all expectations, don’t have anchors for car seats. Would that make things easier? Yeeeeeeeeeesssssssss. Dolts.


Tell me what you're thinking...
