Miss B, World Traveler

A few months ago Miss B's Midwestern aunt suggested that she and her husband and their respective two daughters each would all be thrilled to pieces if Miss B would come visit them for a week in between the end of camp and vacation and the beginning of school. Miss B and Grant both thought this was an excellent idea, so Grant bought her a ticket, paying extra for the privilege of having her sit up front where airline employees can keep an eye on her, and will take her to the airport later this afternoon to begin her adventure. It's amazing to think that this tiny pink creature who used to clutch my hand tightly when crossing the street is now old enough to fly 700 miles by herself.

Please pass the Valium.


  • I put my baby on a plane several times as well, and all's well that ends well, but ... man, it's hard! Martinis all around.

  • I'm nervous for you. Come knit.

  • Knit.
    Then take many deep breaths.
    And the Valium, of course.

  • How about we get a nice big bottle of Valium and share? And then we can knit in a free-form kind of way while we watch our ducklings head out into the world.

  • I cannot imagine. I am willing to drive him across the state to stay for a week at 3 years old, but it will be a very long time before I am prepared to let him go anywhere alone. You are a brave momma!

  • Holy shit! I would have had a panic attack. I just saw she got there safe and sound but still.....
