Flying like a G-6

more like a crazed mom in coach/economy class

I have always loved to travel and when we had Elsie that didn't change.  We had her in the air by two months and she had flown at least sixteen times (one way) by the time she was 18 months old
that is not the case with Vernon

this past year threw us through a loop and have stayed pretty close to home
we have vacationed since having him, but all to places we can drive to

but with Micah's grandparents 80th birthday celebration/family reunion taking place in 
Albuquerque, NM this weekend we figured it was as good as time than any to get him on his first flight

I'm not stressed as much as I'm concerned. This lil' man doesn't sit still long and has recently started impersonating the HULK when he doesn't get his way.
I can only imagine his fury when he realizes he has to remain seated on my lap for two hours

after slowly recovering from a wicked cough he had (which had us worried we wouldn't make the trip)
he started teething
and bad
like real bad
as in a drool trail like a large snail all over the house bad
and he is in pain
and all his gums are swollen
and with the efforts of getting out the luggage to get them both excited about the trip
only resulting into tears and meltdowns had me thinking that maybe flying with two (Vernon really) won't be as easy as I thought
 and apparently we need to get him his own luggage like his big sis

 if you think of me, pray for me and my travels.

Hi! New follower here! Your kids are beautiful. I have two of my own and plan have been thinking about traveling with them. You seem to have it down to a science!
I hope you will check out my new blog too!

Hope all went well for you! The Hulk comment had me smiling but I can relate to those kind of tantrums. My Jocie has always been that way. It's gotten better now that's she's older but she still keeps me on my toes. I remember traveling with her to Texas she went crazy because we were sleeping in a hotel room and not her bed. Praying for you!

I once saw this quote and loved it.

"A sweet and obedient child will enroll a father or mother only in Parenting 101. If you are blessed with a child who tests your patience to the ninth degree, you will be enrolled in Parenting 505. Rather than wonder what you might have done wrong in the premortal life to be so deserving, you might consider the more challenging child a blessing and opportunity to become more godlike yourself. With which child will your patience, long-suffering, and other Christlike virtues most likely be tested, developed, and refined? Could it be possible that you need this child as much as this child needs you?"
