I took my first flight with just me and the girls yesterday and I am happy to say that we made it in one piece. After a delay and change of airports in both New York and Florida, we are here safe and sound. I’ve travelled several times with just one girl by myself, but never both. I’m glad the first time is over because I definitely made some rookie mistakes on our trip. There were things that I did thinking that it would make my life easier and it ended up making the trip more stressful.
I might have been a little too prepared for the trip and when you are by yourself, being over prepared can make you have too much stuff. On my trip back to Manhattan on Monday, I am going to learn from my mistakes and what not to do when you are traveling alone with more than one child.
