My husband and I are in different headspaces today. He’s thinking about his trip to L.A., and I’m thinking about my next trip, our vacation in mysterious, musty, misinterpreted El Salvador. I’m wondering about infant safety on the airplane and outdoors, and he’s wondering, “Can you pick up my dry cleaning?”—with five minutes to spare before the shop closes and twelve hours to spare before he takes off for the last of four work assignments out west.
Do people still say “out west”? Clue me in.
…Which brings me to my next subject, one that I may have touched upon already, but a phenomenon well worth exploring periodically: Mommy Mind.
I totally forgot to go to the eye doctor today. It’s not like I had an appointment, no, I just had to exchange some lenses, but still. It was on my Google calendar, which I hold sacred, and I still forgot!
Okay, so back to infant safety on the airplane.
I bought this (Warning! Don’t watch the video! Or do! It’s crazy the way they show a baby flying up to the cabin ceiling.): Baby B’Air Flight Vest
We might want this: FlyeBaby
We want to pack light. Additional suggestions are welcome. Please comment! Even if it’s more to rip on me for being an airhead and less of a helpful hint. There’s a tiny, microscopic, barely noticeable invitation to Leave a Comment at the bottom of each post. I like this design for my blog, but the comments are rather hard to activate. Sorry and thanks!
