The plane trip was uneventful and fairly smooth. Baby J did not cry at all and managed to just sleep most of the way. He did get loud a little bit, bit it was with happy noises instead of angry ones. For the most part, he actually seemed to enjoy flying.
Today, I walked around the area we are staying. We are here for 9 days; I may as well get to know the place. I bought some groceries at a Trader Joes. It was my first time ever in one. It was pretty neat.
I also went to a Dunkin Doughnuts for the first time in five years. That Boston Cream was heavenly.
So, I am at the airport, waiting for our flight. With my smallest guy. My two older ones are staying with my in-laws while we are gone. For which I am indescribably thankful. If any of you have had the pleasure of traveling with children… you will understand.
My husband and I don’t take a lot of vacations. So, when his work decided to send him to Boston for training, we jumped at the chance for a fun trip together. We were not able to afford tickets for the whole family, so were super pleased that the grandparents agreed to take the older guys. Baby J is still breastfeeding and he is a free flyer.
Now, just because a kid flies for free does not mean easy travel. So, this will be an experiment of sorts. It will be Baby J’s first really big trip. He could be an easy traveler, like big brother Sammi. Or he could be a screamer, like big brother Sol.
