So I offered Eloise $20 to sit with Astrid on the plane so I could just sit with Esther which would have meant I could just read my book while Eloise took orders from a 2 year old the whole flight “SNACK BOOKS COLOR POTTY MARKERS SNACK MOVIE GIVE ME YOUR PHONE BOOKS COLOR!!”
But my 9 year old is too smart to fall for that and responded “Mom $20 for non-stop interruptions isn’t nearly enough when I know I can sit on the other side of the plane with my 7 year old sister and the two of us can just read quietly for 3.5 hours and laugh about the fact that you don’t get to read your book. Good luck with that.”
I will never raise smart children again.
So Eloise and Esther had an AWESOME flight by themselves somewhere on the flight – reading, drinking ginger ale, eating peanuts and being civilized while I entertained Astrid for free and everything.
Because I’ve been told she is mine.
But this post isn’t about that. I am just writing this post to document this conversation I had with Eloise when we were boarding the flight…
Eloise “Mom what’s the weather suppose to be like after we land in Florida?”
Me “Well tomorrow will be cool but the rest of the week looks like it will be super nice!”
Eloise “Well that is good that tomorrow will be cool since we will be landing late tonight. It will give us a day to unpack and get settled. It’s so nice to have that kind of day after traveling.”
Me “ACT 9 YEARS OLD SOMETIMES, OKAY!!!”
