Suck on These
How are we doing?

It’s funny… before I had kids, I was that person that cringed as the family with children approached my aisle on the plane. I actually recited the phrase in my head, “Please don’t sit here, please don’t sit here, not me, not me, not me!” I high-fived the travel Gods when they passed by and ordered that glass of wine as I settled into my book for the flight. Of course I didn’t appreciate any of that time to myself back then. Because I didn’t know!
Now, I’m wiser. And tired. We just travelled with our 3 boys and as we boarded each and every one of our flights, I made eye contact with the more rested individuals on our plane and I KNEW what they were thinking! The same thing I used to think when ‘those families’ approached me.
I hope you do what we did… plug them in to any electronics and snacks available for the duration of the flight! Order yourself some alcohol and relax. Your kids are adorable and they will be just fine. Plus, the last I checked, your money is just as green as anyone else on that plane. 🙂
Happy travels! Miss you!
Ah, Karma. I used to be that way, too, and now we’re one of THOSE families. And we sit apart so the boys don’t fight with each other. The woman next to me offered to switch so we could be together, and I said, “No we want to be apart.” She was hoping to move to a kid-free row, but no suck luck. Oops. But she was quite lovely after she succumbed to her fate. 🙂
He’s so darn cute. I’d like to try!
Have a wonderful trip, Evelyn, see you soon!
Sally, sitting next to you on a flight would be a true blessing from God. You’d have us both lulled to sleep with lullabies in no time!
I think other people’s kids are easier on the airplane than your own. If they are naughty, no one gives you stink-eye.
We always fly Southwest now. All the families huddle in the back and sympathetically share lollipops and crayons. It’s slightly less miserable.
Hope you’re having a fun Floridavacationweddingextravaganza.
I’m pretty sure your gremlin is ADORABLE!
I might just be crazy, but I’d sit next to that gremlin. Happily.
Can you be hired as a chaperone, Bri? xoxo!
