All set!

Posted by Dawn at Wednesday, April 29, 2009
Just as I was excited to go on a holiday for the first time with Caleb, I was also pretty nervous and slightly worried as to how well he would cope. Will he enjoy the plane ride? Will I have problems putting him to sleep, considering that my helper, Vicky helps me to do that in Singapore? Will he eat well?

I guess its every parent's worry when bringing a young child overseas for the first time. Packing his luggage was also another ball game. I had to make sure I had all his stuff like milk powder, diapers, wet wipes etc.

Anyway, it helps to get Caleb mentally prepared as I showed him video clips on aeroplane take off and how it looks inside the aeroplane by going to YouTube. Initially, I thought of reading books on aeroplane to him but I figured, it is inconvenient to go library and having to find books on aeroplane may be a hassle. So I thought, hey, internet is the best and most convenient resource that I can make use of! So yup. I had to cautiously choose videos that do not show airplane accidents if not, Caleb would probably not dare to step into an aeroplane. Ha.

Now that I am packing stuff for Caleb, I had to pack much earlier so that as and when I think of what to bring, I would quickly go get it and throw it into his luggage. So I know I cant leave it to last minute.

Whatever it is, everytime when I put stuff into my luggage, I would feel excited as its like a step nearer and nearer to the day we board the plane.
