I’ve been feeling a bit rundown this week 😦 being away from my babies last week wasn’t as restful as I had imagined it would be. I was in Sproutland working. I really thought that staying at a hotel would mean hours of peace and quiet and sleep! Alas, my girls were all I could think about and I woke up 3-4 times every night. Then, I got hit with some sort of upper respiratory infection this week (I think Gia brought it home from school and passed it off to me. Of course she’s fine – Strong as an ox that one is!) And now that I’m feeling better I get to open the flood gates of stress – here comes that overwhelming feeling of angst as I prepare us to travel to Spain next week.
I am excited! It will really be fantastic to see family and friends I haven’t seen in years. …it’s just that how the heck are we gonna survive this 9 hour flight with an 8 month old in my arms and a toddler who would rather run up and down the aisle than sleep! How does anybody do it?! We’ve flown many, many times with the girls. Seriously, they both had their first flights at 2 months old! But we’ve never gone more than 3-4 hours.
So I need your help (and your prayers!!). What has worked for you? What hasn’t? I will take the obligatory fully-charged iPad obviously 😉 but what happens when that battery dies? My husband bought this baby carrier/hammock looking thing that helps you hold the baby in flight. Anybody try one before? Oh, and I’ve already checked with the airline and there is not a bassinet option on this flight.
Thanks again for your wonderful words of advice! I can’t wait to tell you all about our trip and share some photos too.
