I took a business trip for work and realized that I had not flown in a plane since 2009. Yes it was more than 5 years since I'd been in a plane. How horrible? I used to fly all the time but having three kids and a frugal mindset, we often took the caravan of love route to visit grandparents and family far away. Car trips are a lot of fun, but they are also very exhausting. I remember my last flight was with my oldest daughter who was 8 months at the time. Oddly I was sick the entire time. Super nauseated and very cranky. She was having problems nursing but during the flight she was amazing. We sat and looked out the window and people were amazed at how quiet she was (I wasn't - she is my most agreeable child). I found out on the return trip that I was pregnant with our second child. After that I hadn't flown since.
Organic Early Childhood Experiences
It's really important to provide "organic" experiences by taking your child places that will stimulate their 5 senses.
