In which I admit that children don’t always ruin a flight

Tiff wrote about an adorable munchkin on her flight who made her ovaries hurt. I had one of those on the flight from Memphis to DCA — just a little cherub, who was knee-high to a grasshopper, so they say. She was going to visit her grandma, and she was so excited.

To keep her quiet, her mom gave her a portable DVD player, and she watched “Toy Story” during the two-hour flight. She also had a little Woody doll, with whom she shared her window seat right in front of me.

She held him up to the window to make sure he got to see the Memphis and metro D.C. skylines, and she explained the handful of air pockets to him as “the plane acting silly.” She told him to think about how much fun they were going to have because they were spending Christmas with Grandma.

So friggin’ cute. I want one only if I can get one that sweet, smart and well-mannered. 😉

    LOL it sure helps when the parent anticipates what will keep their child entertained during those long flights! The cherub must have been a cutie! Showing Woody Memphis…too precious! 🙂

    I hope you have a wonderful holiday! 🙂
