Hi, my name is Aiden! You might know me as “Baby Points Traveler” when you read my Mom’s posts on the blog.
From what I remember, she had previously written about how excited
she I was to be taking my first flight. She booked us a last-minute getaway to Miami to celebrate Father’s Day weekend as a family. Many other mommies and daddies commented and shared tips and encouragement for traveling with us little ones. Well, the good news is… my first (and second) flight was a HUGE success.
Even though my mom overslept by nearly an hour, she darted out of bed and packed for herself and I in under 15 minutes. She made sure I had everything and more (which was proven since my little belongings dominated 90% of her suitcase), but she forgot some important necessities for herself – including flip flops and pajamas! She really needs to get her act together. Forgetting to pack things seems to be the norm with her new mommy brain. This time, instead of thrifting, she convinced my dad to let her squeeze in some shopping.
It was still dark outside when we arrived at the airport, and going through security wasn’t bad at all. The only issue we had was that they commented on the amount of formula mommy packed in my carryon (cut me some slack, I’m a big 20-pounder). Boarding the plane was also no big deal. Mommy and Daddy sat across from each other with the aisle in the middle. All of the crew on board was excited that I was celebrating my first flight with them.
Since it was such an early, Saturday-morning flight, I knew I had to be on my best behavior and considerate of the other big people on board. I didn’t make a peep the entire flight. I looked around at the people, smiled, and caught up on cuddle time. When we landed, everyone was impressed with my performance. In fact, nearby seat mates even commented about how well I did!
My favorite part of the trip was getting a picture inside the cockpit and with the captain!
Thanks for all of the support, and I look forward to reading this post myself in a few years!
