We’ve been thinking a lot about just how long the flight from here to San Jose might be with a bored toddler. Unbeknownst to Elise, her mommy has been squirreling away things to keep her busy and quiet. Today, Elise and her daddy added to the stash by purchasing headphones. The plan was that we’d give her some time to get used to them before trying to explain their merits on a crowded airplane.
So-we took out the headphones and plugged them into mommy’s iPod shuffle thingie. The look of joy on our little girl’s face as she realized that she had her favorite They Might Be Giants tunes playing right in her ear was priceless. The picture above shows her walking around with the music player in her back pocket. :)
Between the mp3 player and a portable DVD player stocked with Thomas the Tank Engine movies, we should be pretty well set. We’ll also bring the obligatory stack of books, coloring book, crayons and maybe even a small amount of playdoh. Woo hoo! Given this evening’s experience, though, we just need to make sure the iPod is fully charged and nobody tries to take the headphones away...
