She's got the face of an angel and the spirit of an imp, this child of mine. :) I can't believe that in a few short months she'll be two years old...mind blowing really. Each time I lift her out of her crib she feels a little bigger, a little heavier. I measured her when we went to get her passport photo this weekend - she's two-and-a-half feet tall - nearly half her mama's height.
We'll be leaving in July on an adventure. An adventure in which we'll be traveling halfway around the world to meet a new member of our family - an Aussie niece or nephew and cousin.
I think I'm probably crazy to take a two-year-old on a fourteen hour flight. It's very (very) possible I may regret the decision. But I know for a certainty that I would regret not going - not meeting this new baby; not helping my sister enter into new motherhood. It feels so important. She's my only sister, and she's worked very hard for this baby.
So the question is - how do you take a toddler with the stubbornness of a mule, the mischievousness of an imp, and the determination of a marathoner on a flight this long? I suppose you pray to God for mercy and hope that she sleeps like an angel.
And you hope that people will give you advice - good advice - amazing advice. So lay it on me people...I'm all ears.
