Leaving, on a Jet Plane
Last week Rebekah took her first of what will probably be dozens of plane rides in her life. She had been sick over the past couple weeks with her first ear infection, and we were very concerned, having heard many screaming babies during our journeys over the years. Although we are patient with babies and their parents, we didn't want to be the center of attention, in a bad way.
She got to know the pilots early, waving to them (they waved back) as they prepared for the flight.
Before the flight, she became the center of attention, in a good way, by charming the fellow passengers and the flight attendant.
What were we worried about? During the flight, she played and enjoyed the complimentary airline pretzel sticks.
And by the end of the flight, she followed her parents' examples of being able to sleep anywhere.
