Travel time

Well, I may have officially went bonkers. And if I haven't yet, I probably will by the end of this week. We are going on our first trip with BOTH kids.

We've traveled a lot with just Paisley and it has actually been smooth sailing minus the whole Diaper Crisis of 2011 you may or may not remember. The moral of that story is that cruise ships do NOT think that any parents on board would be stupid enough to not pack plenty of diapers. Therefore, they do not sell them anywhere. Also learned that swim diapers are not a good alternative as they do not hold in urine AT ALL. Lots of good info from that experience.

In fact, I joked that if we had been the unlucky people stuck on this latest cruise ship, we would be screwed. Our diaper supply would have ran out many days ago and the amount of bath towels we'd be using as diapers would be astonishing.

Anyways, tomorrow we board a direct flight for Las Vegas to go to my husband's annual vet conference for 5 days. An Paisley is super excited. She loves that our luggage is out (although mostly still empty) and she likes to talk about going in the big airplane to Viva Las Vegas. So cute.

Graham should be good because, well, he always is. So I pray this will be no different. Big change this time is that she gets her own seat for the first time and he is now here too. Lots of luck and snacks will be needed while making this journey.


  1. Good luck!!!!! It sounds like you have a great traveler and a sweet baby, so you may just luck out!

  2. I remember your diaper crisis well and when I was reading about those poor people on that cruise I actually thought about you and wondered if there were babies without diapers on board- eek! Good luck with the trip and have fun!

  3. Good luck! Ohh I remember that scary diaper crisis!!! "Viva Las Vegas" hahaha So cute you are Paisley! :) Isn't the whole point of swim diapers is to keep wetness in since they are like immersed in water hhahaa Good to know! What happens when you guys are away? Does another vet step in or do you close the clinic?
