Thoughts From a Thursday

Life Ramblings The Working World

-Going back to work was hard and rewarding and exciting and stressful and so many things.


-We just booked our first air travel for this spring, and I’m nervous. I’m also kind of surprised they haven’t invented some kind of seatbelt for lap babies. It just doesn’t seem safe to me.

-I’ve been doing Popsugar Fitness at home, but last week was my first time visiting the gym again. Man, I forgot that it’s such a scene with everyone in their best Lulu and perfectly curled ponytails. I just love people watching.

-I got some Articles of Society jeans from Nordstrom since I’m kind of in between sizes. For a $59 jean, I really like them!

-The City of Dallas knocked on my door this morning and told me our front fence (that I’m assuming was built with the house 10 years ago) violates code and I need to take it from 8 feet to 4 in 30 days. What??

-We’re all tired, so this weekend is all about rest (and laundry). Can’t wait!

    The safest seating arrangement for a baby on an airplane is the same as in a car–buckled rear-facing into a car seat. This is especially true for take-offs and landings, as well as any time when the seat belt sign is on. Most people don’t want to pay for the extra seat, though, while they can get away with it. Probably more risky than any seating arrangement, though, is the amount of germs you’ll encounter as you fly. My husband is an airline pilot and we’ve flown hundreds of times with our kids since they were babies. No seating injuries but many post-flight colds! We waited to fly with our youngest until he was almost two so his immune system would be stronger. Hope you have a great, safe, not-too-germy flight!

      Good point:( I know we should buy one but it’s so tempting to save the $$

    Agree! While buying a seat while you don’t have to is painful, if it’s a cheap flight, it’s worth it. Safety aside, we bought our daughter her own seat after age one because we flew with her at 9 months and it was terrible because she was so squirmy (until about 7-8 months, this shouldn’t be a problem). We’ve gotten her used to the idea that , like in a car,she always sits in a car seat during a flight, making our flights relatively painless. I don’t think you need to do it for your first flight while Emerson is tiny but worth considering in a year or so

    I thought you lived in a condo. Did you move/buy a house?

      Technically it’s a townhouse, but we have a front and back yard…
