10 Tips for Flying (Coach) with Your Own Little Peter Pan

Recently I went to Disneyland with my two littles (ages 2.5 years and 5 months). We flew to California from Oregon, so it wasn’t exactly a super long flight, but as any parent who has flown with children knows, flying with children can sometimes be a little less magical than Peter Pan made it look.

It wasn’t my first time flying with a baby (I’ve flown with my daughter at least five other times), but it was my first time traveling with two kids instead of one, which made things a bit more interesting. With little ones, you can’t always predict or plan for everything (i.e. the time our flight was delayed for FOUR hours and fell well after bed time – you can imagine how that went), but I’ve found that when I put in the effort to plan ahead things definitely go better.

Here are a few tips that help me to make our flying experience go a bit more smoothly.

Why I'm Preparing for Holiday Travel Now

Getting ready to travel with children during the holidays feels a bit like an Olympic event.

Which is exactly why I’m following these few thoughts and tips, so we can celebrate little victories rather than dwell on the turbulence along the way.

My Top 5 Places to Vacation with Baby

Thanks to Disney for sending me to Walt Disney World Resort® for free during my work with Disney Channel!

I’ve always dreamed of taking my babies on vacation with me. I picture how adorable they will look in all the photos, how cute they’ll be pulling their very own miniature suitcases behind them in the airport, and how soundly they are going to sleep at night after a long day of fun in the sun.

So, I decided to do some research to come up with my own list of top baby-friendly vacation places. Read on to find out where they are!

First Trip to the State Fair!

As a stay-at-home mom, I’m always looking for reasons to get out of the house with my boys.

Recently the Arkansas State Fair came to Little Rock, an hour away from where we live. My sister-in-law, who has a 1-year-old daughter named Phoenix, called me and asked if the boys and I wanted to go to the fair. Of course, we said yes!

We had a blast! Read on to see pictures of our little ones enjoying their first time at the fair.
