Ruby will be going on her first vacation this Wednesday. Getting there includes an airplane. I will be travelling with her. Jason will not. Ever since I booked the ticket I have been brainstorming ways in which this could go all wrong. And then systematically developing solutions. Here’s what I have so far…
Problem: I have to pee.
Likelihood: Very high. I’m guessing I’ll be without assistance for about 7 hours in total.
Solution: Wet my pants.
Problem: My arms fall off from holding the baby for 7 hours.
Solution: Freak out.
Problem: Ruby cries (the whole flight).
Likelihood: High (moderate).
Solution: Cry louder and drown her out.
Problem: I’m seated next to an anti-public breastfeeding passenger.
Likelihood: Low to moderate.
Solution: Put my shirt back on.
Problem: Ruby has a blowout on the airplane.
Solution: Ask the passenger seated next to me to hold her while I change my clothes.
What am I missing?
