Family Planning

Six airplanes. Fifteen days.

Not looking forward to that.

HRH is going on the same plane over, which means he’s all up in my face about what we should bring to entertain the kids. But he’s a novice and doesn’t understand the main thing a parent needs for a successful 13 hour flight, total disregard for the usual rules and an element of surprise.

He’s talking about how we’re going to get the kids to eat their veggies in flight and limiting their screen time.

Meanwhile in the Realm of Reality, I’m loading the iPad with new movies and calculating the maximum snack holding potential of my backpack.

We’ll see how it goes, I guess. On the way back, at least I’ll have free reign.

After THAT title, not quite the post you were expecting, perhap? Sorry y’all.

    You are absolutely right on how to survive airplane travel with little kids!

    awesome. Like your planning at least. But please do inform of of how HRH tries to get the kids to eat the vegetables in flight. I do predict a bit of a painful flight. At least the flight home should be less so.

      To be honest, he will probably sleep the whole time and leave me to deal with the consequences of his screwed up planning. Last time we flew together, as we were getting off the plane the woman in front of me told me she would have strangled him if that we’r her husband. But I don’t think mere strangulations would waken him, anyway.

      The worst part is the earth will probably align with the stars in some strange way and they might actually behave for him. Then I’d never hear the end of it!
