We just booked our plane tickets to fly to Hawaii next spring for a 10-day vacation! My brother and his wife live there, so we will get to stay with them. It will be a blast! And thankfully, this time we only have one stop on our way, with a very short layover. Last time we went to Hawaii we had two stops, with long layovers. It made for a very long trip with a 17-month old.
Now, there is only one thing that could be a possible glitch in our plans. Since we used frequent flier miles to pay for two of our tickets, we had to book those separately. So Brian booked mine and Emma's together. Now he just has to book his ticket and pay cash. Only, what if he can't get on our same flights for some reason? "No problem", he says. He will take the baby, and I will take Emma. That will be no problem, as long as Brian is planning on lactating by then.
So, there is a slight chance that I will end up on these flights with a three year old and a new baby, while Brian is sipping martinis on his comfortable flight.
