Survival Kits

It's no secret. I'm terrified that we're going to become Public Enemy Number One if (after) Ada cries, screams, and squirms during entire flight. I've been on an airplane with a screaming baby and talked to enough people to know that no one likes the screaming baby. Rather, no one likes the wailing baby's parents. Me. And I want people to like me. Who doesn't want people to like them?

So I've put together some Wailing Baby Survival Kits for the passengers unfortunate enough to sit next to us on the plane. The contents include:
  • A book of Sudoko puzzles
  • A pencil
  • Advil (for those crying induced headaches)
  • Wipes (for spills and possible baby-related mishaps)
  • Ear plugs
  • Gum
  • Chapstick
  • Chocolate

We also included a little letter to our fellow passengers:


I'm hoping that in the (very likely) event that we disrupt others on the plane, they'll at least give us a bit more patience than they maybe would have because they know we know just how obnoxious we are.

Haha Paige I love you for this. I love that you even put a letter along with it too. Maybe Ada will surprise you and be the angel baby the entire flight!!! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you too :) Good luck!

This is an amazing idea, and one I am definitely going to use in the future.

I LOVE this. I laughed the entire time I was reading and then had to read it to my husband because he was curious. Genius. Now watch, after making all those kits, Ada will be an angel... :)

You all are so nice! I feel like I have to say that I got the idea from someone else. For the source you can check out my Pinboard on moving abroad.
