She looks harmless enough, but she's feisty, active, and spunky. Not the best combination for hours and hours on an airplane. We're headed out West on Thursday (can't wait!), and I really can't complain...Nate will be with me on all the flights. I am SO thankful for that. But flying with kids is JUST PLAIN TOUGH. My friend Monica and I have been picking our brains for things we can bring to entertain our babies. We laugh and laugh at the recommendations on lots of websites:
"Bring some toys for them."
"Remember lots of snacks."
DUH! It's insulting to me as a parent. Of course I'm going to do those things! But I want specifics. Creative ideas. Do you have any? I would JUST LOVE to hear about them. And anything goes...I don't care that she's only 9 months old. I will definitely try suckers and candy necklaces. I don't think I will try any drugs. It'll surely backfire anyway. What have you found that really keeps your baby busy? Thank you from the bottom of my heart in advance!
