Gracie started walking forty-two days ago and has wanted to be on the ground and on-the-go ever since.
Gracie started shrieking for fun five days ago and I’ve not yet found an effective way to curb this behavior.
Gracie will go on her first flight in exactly one day and I am terrified. This is a recipe for disaster!!
I’ve been searching for tips about how to successfully fly with babies and it seems all I’ve been able to find are opinion pieces about the necessity of a kids-only section of airplanes, news of children banned from first class, or surveys asking if passengers would pay to avoid being seated near babies.
I’ve got to be honest that my favorite piece of advice was from Flying with Kids and was as follows: “Take lipstick and a small mirror in your (carry-on). If you’re having a bad time, take two minutes to put on some lipstick and give yourself a pep talk in the mirror!” Change the two minutes to five seconds and I think they may have something.
But seriously; I’m quite anxious about making this first big trip with Gracie. How have you fared when traveling with your little ones? Would you ((please!)) offer me any more practical advice for surviving?
