Last week we took a 5 hours flight with the girls out to Arizona & then took the red eye home. It wasn’t easy, but it was a lot better then expected. It was the first time we flew with both girls since Alex could walk. Something about doubling the number of active little ones on the plane terrified me. Alex is a very wild child. Like most 20 month olds, she only stops moving when she is sleeping. The flight left at 9am, so we were literally flying during her most active hours of the day!
I was nervous, but knew we could do it & that once we landed, a wonderful family vacation awaited.
I can’t tell you how many times I heard this in the airport:
“Wow you have your hands full” or “Whoa you’re brave traveling with them”
A lot of people think I’m crazy for flying with two little ones, but it’s usually not a bad experience at all. Also, I try to remember: my kids won’t be the first or last kids to cry on a plane.
