everyone please send some good old anti-flaring vibes my way!! :)

we'll be flying (with a toddler eyes ) from hawaii to the mainland and then returning 2 weeks later. i'm starting to feel butterflies in my stomach every time i think about it. ugh.

i'm really trying to take it easy and remind myself that we're nearly packed... just gotta throw in the shampoo and toothbrushes before we leave.

but i know i won't feel at ease until we're checked in and thru security...

but i'm also very excited to go... we haven't visited the mainland in over 8 years so it's time!

anyway, thanks for the positive thoughts... i need them and appreciate them!!

aloha!

Heather, that's awesome that your going on vacation! I always get the butterflies too, I think mine is due to excitement. I will keep my fingers crossed and hope that the flight is uneventful for both you and the hubby. I'm sure your son will behave himself right???? lol Have fun!

Have fun! Try and relax though. The IDEA of traveling with a toddler can be WAY WAY more stressful than the actual traveling is. I know I always get so worked up when we travel with the kids, and it's never bad...I'm just stressed out of my mind about what COULD be. I'm sure you'll have a great time!!!
