You’ve heard of organized chaos, right? Well, I’m surrounded by chaos, and it is not organized. My living room floor has Army uniforms and gear spread all over. Toys and random objects are mixed in, making a huge jumbled mess. There are barely any clear spots to walk on! Baby J and I leave tomorrow for Florida. I have to work for the Army Reserve for four days, and then we’ll also spend a few with my parents. Mom quit her job a few weeks ago and is still looking for another, so she’s going to watch Baby J while I’m working. If I remember to take the right paperwork with me for once, I’m going to try to change my last name finally, and take on Hubby’s. He’ll stopped getting ribbed at work over it then. =D
I planned to get most of the packing done yesterday, but I ended up going to bed early. Couldn’t sleep though, so I just laid there. Baby J and I both have a cold, and last night it just really knocked me down: sore throat, chills, aches. I was worried it was the flu, but I don’t feel terrible enough for it to be the flu, so probably just a cold.
This will be my first time flying with Baby J, so I’m a little nervous. I’m a seasoned traveler though, so at least there’s that. I’m planning on buying some chocolate milk from Starbucks before we get on the plane. Hopefully with that in his sippy cup, he’ll be happy to drink as we’re taking off and landing, and I won’t have to worry about his little ears being in pain!
Ahhhhhh he’s so fussy right now. He just wants my attention, so I’m going to have to get off for now. I’ve got chicken on the stove anyway that’s almost done. I need to get him out of the house, probably, but there’s still so much here that I need to do. I’m hoping Hubby gets home early. Then maybe he can take Baby J out somewhere while I finish up.
Have you flown with a baby before? Any tips for me?
