“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
I’ve just got a moment between getting everything packed for our trip across the Pacific. It’s amazing how many things a baby needs for a two week trip! We’ve got his clothes all packed, but we’re waiting until he wakes from his last nap of the day to get the essentials packed – his sound machine, monitor, bottle-warmer, etc. [You read that right. We won’t be going anywhere without his sound machine!] We’ll be catching the red-eye, which could either make things incredibly simple for our infant or incredibly difficult, depending on whether he can sleep on the plane or not.
I’ll let you know how that one goes.
And then there’s my Mom, who can’t go anywhere without bringing omiyage [in Japanese tradition, wherever we go we come with gifts… I guess you’d call it a social/cultural obligation]. She’s got an entire suitcase full of gifts. I can’t go into too many specifics just yet because some of my family/friends who will be receiving them read the blog, but I’ll just say that she’s been a busy woman making homemade goodies for the ‘ohana on the continent.
Plus the typical island goodies – chocolate mac nuts and the like.
Before we get on the plane, our little family is heading to the chiropractor to get adjusted! Just in time… I’m hoping she can help keep this approaching headcold from taking me out completely.
See you on the other side of the Pacific [if the world doesn’t end If it does, we’ll just keep flying!].
Any tips for traveling with infants? [Why didn’t I ask this a week ago??!]
