Vaya Con Dumbass

Johnny and I have recently been tempted to go to Pensacola.

I mean, REALLLLLLLY tempted. There will be another cute, delicious baby there, and two big fun kids, and a lot of the people I love in one place. I am dying to go. Dying.

But I'm a little nervous. It seems like a big deal to fly solo with the little guy. What if he beasts out? How do I change his diaper on a plane? What if we sit next to the person with Tuberculosis or something? And then when we get there, what if he won't sleep or nap? What if he's allergic to the sun? What if I lose my luggage containing the four thousand bottles, diapers, toys, wipes, washcloths, bibs, and socks that I'll have to pack? How will I bathe him?

What about the car seat and the stroller and the Bjorn? What about the routine? What if he suddenly, miraculously starts walking and reciting the Declaration of Independence while we're there? T will miss it! What if he becomes a Republican while in Pensacola? Is it contagious?

Is it just that I'm a wimp? Ugh. I'll let you know what we decide. Meanwhile, Johnny is still weighing the pros and cons his ownself.:

What to do, what to do.

From a fellow travelling mom, Go For It! He's at a great age for flying. You Will be exhausted every step of the way and probably after you return, But, it'll be worth it. Really! Planes have little shelves for changing miniscule kids in the bathroom, there are stores in Florida and T could miss something while he's at work anyway. So Go!
BTW, who's in Pensacola?

Go!! Book the bulkhead seat, gives you more legroom. Wayyyyy back when they used to have little bassinette type things that hooked on the bulkhead for sleeping babies but I suppose lawsuit and insurance concerns did away with those. And if he turns beastly on the plane, so what? I never care if a baby cries. I always feel more sorry for the parents. As long as nobody hands me the crying baby I just don't care. Losing bottles and diapers..don't they have stores in Pensacola?? Go For It.
