In-Flight Chaos

by bkhoury on July 14, 2011

We thought we were being clever.  We booked ourselves on the 6:55 am flight direct to Minneapolis.  Two hours and twenty minutes.  Piece of cake.  We would wake the boys, bring bananas to fill them up on the car ride to the airport, and they would be back asleep upon take-off.  Not quite so fast perky parents.  First we got cocky and underestimated the time required to park the car, check and pay for luggage, and get two kids, a dog (yes the dog), a double stroller and ourselves through security.  By the time we reached the gate, the plane was boarding.  We again thought we were being smart by pre-boarding the plane so as to not disturb anyone – and to get away from the stares at our very own three-ring circus.  I didn’t realize how LONG boarding takes!  20 minutes later Will and Hunter started jumping on the seats and I realized that was the first indication of trouble with a capital T. 

Will has flown at least twice a year for all of his three years.  Traveling on a plane seemed uninteresting to him once we actually got on.  But apparently a little light bulb went off that we physically go into the sky this time.  He was sitting in the window seat and as we started to take off, he was scared to bits (although the good thing is I got to hug him the entire time which I never get to do).  No sleep for this weary three year old.  And his energy was contagious.  Hunter was wound up like a top.  So here are the four of us, packed into three seats with two boys bouncing off the walls. 

What’s a parent to do?  Give them cookies of course!  Soon the helpful flight attendant came by with an entire case pack of in-flight cookies!  Just what they needed –sugar!  I had packed tons of snacks.  Dried fruit, healthy granola bars, banana chips and other fruit but those were not interesting compared to airplane cookies!  I didn’t need cookies.  I needed bacon and eggs. 

Soon utter over-exhaustion set in.  Hunter in particular couldn’t hold it together.  Excitement turned into frustration by the confinement of our shrinking airline seats.  Every time we tried to distract him he lost more patience and eventually just started crying.  Ryan gripped him in a bear hug and rocked him while he screamed.  And screamed.  And screamed.  It wasn’t until we were taxiing to the gate that he finally relented to the exhaustion, closing his eyes just in time to be carried off the plane.

We have another flight planned later this summer and I’m scared!
