Don’t get me wrong; traveling with a baby can be a pain, but then again so can traveling with adults! I always find solace in the fact that regardless of what happens during a trip, I’ll never see these other people again. And if I do, I’ll just lie about it having been me with the screaming baby on their flight last month.
Now this is all good and fun since Rae is less than a year old and not yet a rebel without a cause. I’m sure there will be plenty of other travel realities once she is a toddler, because as Jim Gaffigan says, “Traveling with 3 and 4 year olds is like transferring serial killers from a prison, you have to be aware at all times”. But for now, as the under appreciated American cinematic masterpiece of the 90’s Baby’s Day Out said, “no bib, no crib, no problem!”
Now stop making excuses to deny yourself a well earned vacation just because you’ve got a baby and explore the world! Just don’t say Beetlejuice while sitting 3in from the in-flight entertainment screen.
