Day 6

Something I Bought Recently

Well, Beck and I took a trip. I haven't flown by myself with a one-year-old, so I was a little bit nervous. I asked my FB friends their advice on keeping a kid happy while on a plane, and ended up buying some goods on the way to the airport. Pringles, Tootsie Pop, and fruit snacks. My mouth is watering, so I think I'm gonna have to go get those fruit snacks.

Did you want the update on the plane ride? Well, it was a pretty empty flight, so we got a row of three seats to ourselves, no one in front of us, beside us, or in back of us. Things were going pretty well. Then I smelled a little something. Then I smelled a little something again. I looked down his diaper and yep, a little something was in there. I realized that I had packed ALL of the diapers in my bag that I checked. So I thought to myself, "Well, as long as it doesn't creep up, we're OK." A little while later, it had creeped. I thought about what I could do. I could wrap him up in my hoodie. I could clean out his diaper and put it back on him. I took him to the bathroom with just my wipes, sat him on the changing table, and cleaned out the back so it wouldn't creep up anymore. And that was it. I took him back to our seats and hoped no one could smell it.

Then I gave him a grape Tootsie Pop and hoped that they just smelled the grape.

Traveling with a one-year-old for us usually means lots of chasing and bargaining for said one-year-old to stay put. :) Did you know that the flight attendants have extra diapers in the back??

Holy crap (pun intended) that's funny.

Hahaha! I would've panicked. Way to be a good mom.

I love your little Beck...so innocent and cute. I hope he enjoyed his tootsie pop.
