Tomorrow is December 1st and I’m so ready for it. I love everything about December. It’s mostly fun days but it comes with a ton of stress, which ends up being worth it in the end. On Wednesday my son and I fly to my parents and we’re staying there for the whole month. I’m so happy and excited. BUT I am very anxious about the flight, again. The older he gets, the harder the flights get. Since he isn’t two yet he can still be sit on my lap for the flight which is a curse but we did it like this for the last time to save the cash. I know, bla bla. My son is a worm and he does not like to sit still, ever. So it’s always a challenge. But I’ll do my best to iPad and snack the shit out of the trip, haha. (I’ll have to put some Mickey Mouse on the iPad, mental note.)
Do you have any tips for flying with a toddler? I’d love to hear them.
I’m going to miss my hubby for the few weeks we’ll be apart. But he is very nice about it and doesn’t mind. He misses us of course but he knows it’s good for my mental health to spend as much time as I can with my family back home. Living flights away from your family sucks, especially when you have a child. They miss their first and only grandbaby so much and they can’t wait to see us 🙂
Since my boy is almost 2 now this year he will hopefully understand a bit more what we’re doing as far as Christmas goes. We’re not religious or anything, not at all actually. But celebrating Christmas (we say “Jul” in Norwegian) is a wonderful tradition that to me means family, good food, laughter, warmth and love. We only got him one gift because his birthday is January 31st and he’ll get something bigger then. But he gets so spoiled by the rest of the family anyway and he doesn’t NEED anything so it’s all just bonuses. I’m excited. Tomorrow I need to find outfits for me and my son for Christmas eve. If you didn’t know, in Norway where I’m from, we celebrate on the evening and night of the 24th of December. We do a big dinner and open presents that night. Ugh love it so much.
I won’t bring my laptop there because let’s be honest, getting on the plane with a computer bag sounds awful. All I have time for it one backpack and the UrgoBaby. I don’t want my son running all over the airport disappearing from me so I need to have him strapped to me, lol. I’m already sweating thinking about it. How do parents with two kids travel alone? I guess I’ll find out in the future. ANYWAY. What I was gonna say is, I don’t know how much I’ll blog. I really want to blog, because I absolutely loooove Christmas content. But the app on my phone isn’t really that good for blogging in my opinion. I’ll see how I feel. I just prefer seeing my posts on my laptop and how they look on my blog etc.
Have a LOVELY early December, people. I hope you love this time as much as I do ♡
