Thankful Thursday: The Airplane Edition

Good morning!  How is your Thursday treating you?  

The past few weeks I was thinking so much about what to pack for this trip that I hand’t really thought about the fact that I was taking an almost-two-year-old on a plane.

Alone.

One on one.

So, it turns out I have a lot to be thankful for today.  

I am thankful that curb side checking exists, because hauling all of our stuff and Ina through the airport would have been interesting.

I am thankful for the guy who worked security who folded my umbrella stroller for me because I couldn’t get it to fold.  (Sorry to the 100 people behind me in line.)

“Momma!  The airplane goes ZOOM ZOOM!”  

I am thankful to the women in front of me at the Starbucks line who let us cut because Ina decided she wanted all the coffee beans.  

I am thankful that nobody sat next to me on the plane, so Ina actually had a seat.  Weird how no one wanted to sit next to us?  (She flies free as a lap child until she is two.)

“AGGH!  We’re flying!!!” - Ina when we started taxing down the runway.  

I am thankful for stickers.  Because when the airplane landed but our gate was occupied and we had to stay on the plane not moving for another 20 minutes, I had already read all my books, used the iPad, and busted out the Cheetos.

The stickers were my last resort.  

And, of course, I am so thankful for my aunt, uncle, and cousins here in Houston.   We have already had a blast and been completely spoiled.  Exhibit A: this blurry picture of dinner (I was in a hurry to eat).

Pesto meatballs with brussels sprouts and quinoa pasta.  I am going to recreate it as soon as I get home.  

Have a good day!
