Reiko and I are flying this Sunday. We're leaving for my hometown to celebrate his third birthday on Tuesday. At last, I can have my much needed break from work for one week. So, where's the husband you may ask? He's not flying with us. He has a new job, remember? To date, this is going to be the third trip to my hometown without my husband.
What if he will cry and scream inside the plane and the only thing that can stop him from crying is a ridiculously-priced piece of chocolate cake? That he'd just play with and never eat by the way.
What if I suddenly and badly feel the need to pee and he's sound asleep? Where would I leave him? What if he runs inside the male's restroom again and I have to get in just to get him (no matter how embarrassing it is)?
What if he won't allow me to put him down and instead just want me to carry him for the entire time even though every single cell in my body is already shaking from carrying him for almost 3 hours? And below are some of his ways to make sure he gets his point across.
TOO MANY WHAT IFS, what am I gonna do? Yes, all of the above-mentioned happened before, except that I never lost him in the airport. I'd probably die with panic if that happens! Whew. Now that I've let it all out, I bet I can finally say this. Let me say this once and for all.
Have you also encountered a similar situation when you're traveling with your kids? I'd love to hear your stories! :)
