Summer is in full swing, and we couldn’t be happier about that fact. We’re kicking off July with a two-week trip to see family and attend some business meetings, which means we’ll be MIA for the next two weeks. We’ll be sticking to our tried and true budget-savvy travel tips while we’re gone. My brother will be house- and cat-sitting, and our cat will be sleeping in all the forbidden areas, like our couch, bed, and Baby Girl’s room.
We may be slow on commenting while we’re gone. If you want to ensure yours gets a reply, you’ll need to make sure you say something really rude or inflammatory. But not racist or stalkerish, because then we’ll just delete it. Actually, forget everything I just said and just leave normal comments. And I swear we’ll read every single one and try to respond to as many as we can.
Also, today is our first flight with Baby Girl! We’re crossing our fingers and toes that all goes well. Every time I imagine changing a diaper in the airplane bathroom, I have a minor panic attack. Oh, and then there’s the part where our girl is expected to sit still for five hours. No big deal. Why can’t they have a little play area in the back? Perhaps a mini swimming pool? Everyone I’ve talked to about first-flight-with-a-baby butterflies has said, “Just have really low expectations, and you’ll be fine!” And so I’m picturing Johnny, Baby Girl, and myself covered in spit up and poop by day’s end. Wish us luck!
