Good bye snow and ice!

ah, so much going on. I will update fully after I get back from Florida in a week or so.

Right now I am neck deep in the laundry, organizing and packing nonsense associated with any trip with a 15 month old. This should be a different experience that previous flights. Sam is no longer easy to nurse to sleep in such an environment. He is also, if possible, less apt to sit still or be engaged in any sort of activity for more than 20 seconds. I just pray we continue to have great luck when it comes to airplane neighbors. A practicing doula perhaps? Kindergarten teacher? Grandmother of 15? Yes, please. Um, 57 year old corporate sales dude...ugh, no.

And as much as I hate to admit it, I am a little, (little) worried about nursing. Now that Sam is over a year old, I'm afraid, especially in different parts of the country, that there will be comments or looks. I am fully aware that I should not give a shit, and for the most part I don't, but I would be a liar if I didn't admit to thinking about it. This is a flaw I have. I often worry too much about what other people think. I try not to let it effect my decisions, and I think I do a good job with that, but I wish I didn't even entertain such concerns.

So, if anyone has any magic toddler occupying activity that we can do on and airplane, please share. I toyed with idea of a DVD player, but I think he's still too young. He doesn't even really pay attention to the TV when it's on...even the kiddie shows. And frankly, I'd rather not try to make him into a TV watching kid...I'm sure that will happen soon enough.

So see you in a couple weeks. I will have some things to say then, I'm sure. Very sure.
