I’ve mentioned it a million times, but we are leaving for Vegas soon (not today or anything, but soon enough(*)) and I am beginning to dread that long plane ride with WB. Yes, he is the happiest little dude ever. Unless you trap him in a car (or plane) for too long. The car I can tolerate because, yeah, it’s just us in the car and I don’t have a million people glaring at me because my kid won’t stop screaming. But on a plane, we are trapped. Even when he was a baby (save for his first ever flight), L has always been a dream traveler so I never really had to pull out all the stops for him. But for WB, I’m prepared to. I’m packing snacks, play-doh, crayons, trains, his favorite little toy and of course, the iPad loaded with all the Elmo, Thomas and Yo Gabba Gabba a kid could want.
But what else can I do? Any tips? Suggestions? He has his own seat and as much as I dread the thought of it, we’re dragging along a car seat for him because yeah, he’s not just going to sit still (he’s 17 months, I’d never expect him to). Should I be baking cookies for everyone on the plane to say I’m sorry in advance? Or is there some super secret toddler plane ride trick no one has clued me in on yet? HELP!!!
