Boy let me tell you how nervous I was prepping for this flight! I have flown before, many, many times before. I was an Air Force brat who PCS’d every few years, flown with my oldest a couple times… I’m seasoned when it comes to flying.
HOWEVER.. Flying with TWO children and ONE with Special Needs? That had my stomach in knots. I made sure I packed enough snacks of fishies, veggie straws, formula, and packed some toys and my son’s Kindle Fire tablet.
I was a sweaty mess when we got to the gate.. got onto the plane and the stewardess looked at me with disbelief and asked: “Do you have anyone to help you?” I shook my head no and kept on trucking to our row of seats at the back of the plane.
I didn’t have have time to stop and purchase water after going through TSA so I asked the stewardess for a bottle of water. She gave me a HUGE bottle and recommended that I had something for him to suck on during take off..
Made me even more nervous.
I had his bottle prepped and ready, JJ playing his Kindle Fire, and the plane started to move. Then the plane started going faster and faster.. then the ascend. And you know what Jaxson did? He LAUGHED.
Yes, you read correctly, he LAUGHED.
He even laughed during the DESCEND.
I don’t know if it was a fluke or what but I hope our flight back to Florida is a breeze too!
