Because of this I am sure that our normally quiet child will scream from the time we arrive at the airport until the plane lands in Dallas, and angry passengers will throw peanuts at us and give us the stink-eye (and maybe the finger). 1 of 2 things will happen, I'll either be forced to get over the anxiety/people-pleasingness OR I'll be traumatized for life and will become a hermit and never travel by air again.
I didn't realize how much crap babies need! As I mentioned before I'm a list maker. A detailed list maker. I make lists for EVERYTHING. When I travel I make a list of every single thing I'm bringing and not just 7 shirts 3 pants kind of list, it's a brown gap sweater, cream tank top, dark skinny jeans list. Yep, specific articles of clothing. So naturally I did the same while writing Brooklyn's packing list. Luckily both sets of parents have cribs, so we don't have to worry about bringing a pack n' play. We decided for our 1st time flying (not to mention visiting both grandparents 4 hours apart) with a little one we wanted to make it as stress free as possible. That includes a non-stop flight so we don't have to lug a kid and and all of her parts through multiple airports (and so we only annoy 1 plane full of people instead of 2 ha ha!), and renting a car so we don't have to take out and install the car seat and base in 80 different cars over the 2 state, 7 day trip.
|I snapped a pic with my cell of my list & the beginnings of my OCD packing process on Monday...it has since grown :)|
I've got my and BK's travel day outfits planned for maximum "security passing through-ing" efficiency, diaper changing speed, feeding non-awkwardness and of course comfort and a little fashion too! Any moms who've flown with their infants that want to toss any tips out there - I'm all ears!
Wish us luck!
