home sweet home

well another family trip under our belt.
so far lulu has been on a plane three times in her first year and I can honestly say that she is an excellent traveller.
we keep increasing the amount of time we spend in the air on each trip.
but now that she is more mobile, it's much more challenging to keep her occupied.
insert portable dvd player here.
what an awesome invention!
she sat quietly watching "her shows" for the majority of the flight.
Next time we will bring more toys and less books though.
a friend suggested we go to the dollar store to load up, so that every half hour or so (or until she gets bored) we pull out another toy.
If they get lost or forgotten on the plane, oh well, no big deal.
kinda goes against my issue with our "throw-away-society-problem" but it sure beats the hell out of a restless and bored toddler 36,000 feet in the air.
we flew business class which was great, as lulu wanted to move around so she had lots of extra room to do so.
but I have to say, Air Canada is pretty lame.
bad service and bad food.
"would you like curried chicken or curried salmon?"
what if I don't like curry?
not that I don't, I actually love it. But still. A tad pungent for a domestic flight.
It's not like we were flying to Mumbai.
we had priority tags on the baggage but had to wait 30 minutes for the damn stroller.
what's up with that?
actually it was big daddy who was super annoyed by that, I was just happy to be back on the ground.
I'm not a great flyer..lots of anxiety attacks, but that could also have had something to do with the fact that we were visiting the in-laws.
but more on that in the next blog.
anyhow we are home safe and sound.
I can't remember ever being so happy to see our street and pull into the driveway.
the best part of visiting family is coming home.

The Priority sticker actually means "please chuck this bag under the wheels of the cargo truck in order to fully ensure it is unusable when delivered to the travelling customer".

Trust me on these things.
