I remember my first ever plane trip with my (then) 5 month old girl. As i had a huge nappy bag packed with ALL the essentials, and my handbag - also packed with all the essentials, my mum was carrying Tahlia to relieve the load on my lower back and shoulder (both injured). I collected the tickets at the check in counter and went and had a quick cuppa before boarding. As we are boarding, mum still has Tahlia. As i approach the boarding gate, I show both tickets to the attendant at the gate, and being at a small airport i start heading towards the plane across the tarmac. All proud that i was going on my first ever holiday alone with my girl, big smile across my face etc ..i get to the plane. Jumping on board i again had to flash my tickets for inspection. The hostess then asks me "wheres the infant?" I was like huh? Then i turn around and here is my mum and the boarding gate attendant waving frantically at me...and Tahlia waving at me too!!!
A very memorial trip to say the least lol
