First Airplane Ride
Today I experienced my first plane ride. It was a rough experience. We arrived early to the airport and everything was running smoothly until mommy went to the bathroom to pump. She forgot her phone and didn't hear the announcement that the plane was boarding early. By the time she got out, everyone had already boarded and there was no room left for our carry ons. Mommy was frazzled and forgot to take my teething gel out of her carry on before the flight attendant checked it. I was NOT a happy camper. Teething toys are a nice distraction, but they don't take away the pain. Thankfully the flight attendant felt sorry for me and my parents and suggested that mommy and daddy put rum on my gums. She bought them 4 shots!!! A little bit of rum on my gums definitely calmed me down, which was a huge relief to my parents and they were able to relax as well. About half way during the trip I had a huge blow out. Mommy took me into the bathroom which was super tiny and was changing me when all of the sudden there was a bunch of turbulence. The pilot told everyone to return to their seats, but mommy was stuck trying to wipe all the poop off my back and take my onesie off. It was a rough ride, literally. Luckily there was tailwind and we arrived in Boston an hour earlier than scheduled.
