Planning is important. Planning on a budget is essential. Always remember "The Early Bird gets the worm but the Mornin' Bee gets the honey".

Our First Airplane Ride

The week before my daughter’s birthday, we had a lot of first. Our first trip to Maryland. Meeting the family for the first time. And more importantly, our first plane ride. I like to plan for the worse and hope for the best and that caused me to grossly over pack our carryon bag.

Below are the items I thought i needed for Lex for the plane ride.
1. Toys
2. Diapers
3. Baby Headphones
4. Backup Baby Headphones
5. Earplugs
6. Bottles w/ formula
7. Snacks
8. Blanket
9. Wipes
10. Extra set of clothing
11. Shoes
12. iPad

All of these items were in our carryon bag. With so much stuff, it was difficult to find items. My over packing was now working against me. So when it was time to return home,

Below are the items i actually used:
1. Toys
2. Diapers
3. Wipes
4. Bottles w/ formula
5. Snacks
6. Blanket
7. iPad

I didn’t realize that having all these extra items made it more difficult to find everything.
