Over fifty flights
flown by master Wito, he
is a seasoned traveler

He has fluid in
his ear, please GOD don’t rupture
while on the airplane

Questions about flights
with infants/toddlers? I am
your info touchstone

No idea how
but my 6-7 Fantasy
team made the finals

For the second year
in a row, D and I are
playing each other

Makes for a special
time around our household, we
love profanities

He is reigning champ
but this year is going to
be mine, I feel it

I think I’ve found my
favorite scent, but I’m not
ready to divulge

I hate packing bags,
thinking about packing bags
but I love the lists

In my OCD
fashion, I am drowning in
packing/planning lists

Martha Speaks? Maybe
Martha should shut the eff up
Talking dog, my ass

Well, these bags are not
packing themselves, must start the
annoying process

Come back tomorrow
for Plane Adventure haikus
Should be a fab time

    If you’re afraid of the rupture on the airplane, ask the stewardess for hot water, a napkin and a cup. Soak the napkin in hot water and put it in the bottom of the empty cup. Have Wito tilt the affected ear towards his shoulder and put the cup over his ear so the steam can go into the ear. It will be soothing and will relieve a bit of the pressure.

    Thanks, Nic! My doc said he could fly, but when he mentioned the rupture part, I kind of freaked…this is perfect info to know. :)

    I don’t have any great advice about ears. I just wanted to say that my 3 year old is in love with Martha the talking dog as well. ugh

    Is it wrong to say
    the sight of this post made me
    far too excited?

    Can’t wait to hear your
    favorite scent! I need to find
    a new one myself.

    I feel the poor kid’s pain. On our honeymoon (Oct.) both my ear drums ruptured! I couldn’t hear the entire time!

    When I see haiku from you in my feed reader, my heart fills with GLEE. And, apparently, I need a life.

    Your toddler has more travel experience than me. My god I need to start traveling.

    Your haikus are great!
    Some would say inspiring.
    I say Whoorl-tastic.

    All the same J. Crew

    Wish I could haiku
    But instead all I can do
    Is complain — what’s new?

    I’m loving these posts. You’ve got a talent for narrative haiku.

    May you fly safely
    Hopefully not United
    Crabmom shan’t forget

    Such a sucky trip I took last year to S. Africa with Crabtot. 60 HOURS, one way, Whoorl! Put that in your crack pipe and smoke it.

    Safe travels, Sarah. xxx

    No advice on the ear thing except to make sure he’s sucking on something, but you totally already know that.

    Have a great trip!
