So my beloved sister-in-law and her husband are moving to the USA in one week and in an incredibly selfish act on her part she’s taking my nieces with her. Can you believe that? No, I can’t either.
I suspended my denial for just long enough over the weekend to make something for Clementine to play with on the plane.
I wonder what could possibly be inside this intriguing little felt package?
Well, hello laaaaaaydees.
The gals all dressed up and ready for play.
My ladies were inspired by these really divine peg dolls.
We’ve done a bit of long haul flying with babies and toddlers and while it’s never fun, it can be much more manageable if you deeply sedate your kids. JOKING. Just checking to see if you were listening.
What I was really going to say was a long trip is always more tolerable with lots and lots of tiny toys and activities (each individually wrapped so that the unwrapping takes up as much time as possible) and lots and lots of food. That’s it. It’s pretty much that simple. If anyone would like my comprehensive list of things you can pack to amuse a toddler on the plane, then please leave a comment and I’ll happily email it to you.
I’m pretty sure my (very rough – don’t look closely or you’ll see just how badly the pens bled) peg dolls will occupy Clementine for all of about, oh, 4 minutes. But that’s 4 minutes Cassie can devote to bawling her eyes out because she’s already missing me so much. Which would be time well spent I think.
