“Let’s hear it for America Hip-Hoo-Ray!”
I consider myself a seasoned traveler, especially with kids in tow and I know all the tricks, treats and necessities it takes to make it through a flight with children.
Here are my top three rules for flying as peacefully as possible with kids:
1) Provide lots of candy, especially lollipops (longer lasting).
2) Whatever the youngest child wants, the youngest child gets.
3) Keep your expectations low.
Start there and you will be golden.
We are off to Minnesota. Other than Ellinor conking her head on the terminal floor and spilling Starbucks’ black tea all over our boarding passes, we managed to get on the airplane.
As we took off, we encountered a few sketchy toddler moments that even a lollipop couldn’t fix.
I have to wear a seatbelt!!!!???
YouTube Kids doesn’t work??!!!
No pictures please! 😤
When Ellinor wasn’t looking, I promptly deleted the app from all electronic devices. See?? It doesn’t exist, therefore you can’t be mad.
After two flights and a full day of travel, we made it to Minnesota. I am equally as happy to be off the airplane as I am to see my family.
If you need to find me, I will be soaking in July, summer, friends, family, Target and my favorite holiday (next to Christmas), the 4th of July 🇺🇸❤️.
I will catch you in a month.
