Surviving a 3 hour flight with two lap children :
Screw off if you said Priceless
I know what you're thinking...Nightmare for you? Try being a passenger around you four!
Really, I don't care. I've been on flights with screaming children dozens of times and typically I no longer notice them after the initial take off. We've now flown 8 times with our daughter. Only one of them was a bad flight...and it wasn't her that made it bad. We caused every problem by spilling an ungodly amount of crap on her and us. There were kids (or probably parents) on them though that needed to be taken down by the Air Marshall!
The stress involved when you combine babies and airports and subsequently babies in airplanes is monumental for the parents. My daughter is at the stage though that she's bored within 2 minutes of doing ANYTHING. How am I going to fill three hours there and four hours back? Terrible twos started early too! She'll be 22 months this week. I'm afraid she's going to be one of those aforementioned horror children.
Our son is officially two months old this weekend. He's still in the chillin' at the milk bar sleeping for hours mode. Honestly, if you've never witnessed a baby drunk from breast milk, it's remarkable. It also keeps their ears clear during take off and landing...which lucky for us coincides with his feeding schedule!
My nightmare...freaking out during the flight in an attempt to wrangle my child (and then being taken down by Mr. Air Marshall). Any advice for this youngish parent? What hell have you subjected yourself to?
