I could not help some mind-scrambled playing on words. This marks the first time I have packed last-minute for a trip with Mellow Little Person! What? Last-minute? That is a recipe for trouble. Possibly other ingredients in this recipe for trouble are:
- We are taking an afternoon flight. Both nap and bedtime are gettin’ messed with. Whoa.
- MLP is now of steady walking age. Which means all he wants to do is walk-a walk-a walk-a which is amazing at the playground, at gymnastics class, in big grassy fields, and in giant museums. It is not really amazing in the single aisle of a plane.
- I am scared of this flight. I may not have it all together today. I may have to follow my own advice: be civil, be kind, keep apologies to the necessary, stick with what works, everything has an endpoint so yes the flight will land.
Blogiverse say a little prayer for me today? And for my fellow passengers? I mean, MLP is seriously adorable (seriously, I am not just biased here, I swear.) but he is perhaps less adorable while squawking and squirming.
