Fear of Flying...

"I can't stand to fly, I'm not that naive..."

Yeah, I have always had a healthy fear of airplanes. Are we really meant to be traveling above the Earth in aging boxes of steel? My fears are not bad enough to keep me from flying or even to paralyze me, but I do spend a lot of time on board praying/ reciting mantras.

With a toddler flying as a lap child, our upcoming trip is bound to include me praying for a lot more than just safety, though. Sanity, for starters. Sleep, for another. A free seat that we can use to strap our child into his own car seat would be the trifecta of perfect.

A mama can dream.

And bring Elmo. Lots and lots of Elmo.
