You Are Now Free to Move About the Cabin

The kids and I flew back to Texas to visit my family.  The last time I flew with both kids by myself was when Charlotte was 2 1/2 months old and was still sleeping all the time.  I was a little nervous about flying with two toddlers!

I bought a Go-Go Babyz Kidz Travelmate for Trenton’s carseat.  It is one of those dolly things that attaches to the carseat and turns it into a stroller.  I had Charlotte, who still qualifies as a lap child, in a front pack, so maneuvering my way through the airport was pretty easy.  Getting through security was easier than I expected too. 

We didn’t have long to wait at the gate before it was time to board the plane.  Trenton was really excited about our plane ride and read his airport flap book during take off.Flap Book

Trenton also played with train stickers and lacing cards while Charlotte took a little catnap and read books with Mommy.


The first two hours of our flight, I kept wondering how I was so lucky.  Everything was going perfectly.  Security was easy, the flight was good, and my kids were being crazy good.

Then Charlotte threw up…..everywhere….

With the flight attendant’s help, I got our seats cleaned up and Charlotte’s clothes changed.  Unfortunately I hadn’t been able to fit an extra pair of jeans for me in the diaper bag. 

After I got everything cleaned up, Trenton looked over at me and asked, “Mommy, what happened?”.  The kid was oblivious to everything that had just happened!

Less than 10 minutes later, Charlotte was throwing up again.  And I was once again changing her clothes and cleaning up our seat. 

Charlotte kept throwing up until we landed.  I ran out of clothes for her, but luckily I got pretty good with the barf bag. 

As soon as we landed, I texted my dad to let him know that he and my mom would be able to smell us before they could see us in baggage claim!

Hopefully we will all have happy tummies on our return trip back to Virginia!
