In Flight Entertainment


March 23, 2012 by admin


My guys spend a good portion of every flight studying the ‘safety manual’ and asking me questions about all the emergencies that can happen on an airplane.  It’s like I’m in the most interactive type of horror movie possible where I have to imagine and address each and every one of my fears about flying at 35,000 feet while I calmly explain the safety measures in place: in case there’s a fire, in case we have a water landing, in case someone gets sick, in case a window accidentally opens-the scenarios are endless. (The Chuckie movies that used to haunt me as a teen are mild in comparison.) By the time we reach our destination, I’m thoroughly rattled, relieved and ready for vacation.  Please tell me that some of you travelers out there are just as white-knuckled as I am….

(PS this post is part of a weekly link-up on Deliciousbaby where I love to travel vicariously and learn about some fantastic destinations.


  1. My kids do the same thing!! Heck, I did it when I was a kid too!
    If you would like to link up with another Photo Meme, I host Friday Daydreamin’ every Friday! I’d love for you to join!

      Thank you for stopping by! Love your Friday Daydreamin’-very cool idea:) I love hearing where everyone is traveling too-I learn so much about the world.

    I manage to hide it from my kids but I am definitely a nervous flyer. Every little noise or bump sets me on edge and I HATE turbulence!!

  3. My almost 3-year-old “read” the Air Tran in-flight magazine cover-to-cover on our last flight. Hey, whatever keeps them occupied!

    Hah! Are you kidding?? The kids draw straws to see who gets to sit next to mom on a plane because they know the instant we hit turbulence they’ll have my fingernails digging into their arms. I also refuse to have the windows open under the belief that if I don’t see the ground, I’m technically not so high up . . .

  5. I STILL review that same card every time I fly. My husband usually has to pry it away from me and reassure me that I know exactly what to do in an emergency 🙂

    So glad to find your blog through Delicious Baby’s linkup!

    I’m not a nervous flyer, but your post made me smile because all little boys seem to have an inborn fascination with danger and destruction. My little guy is 13 now and still manages to come up with scenarios where we explode or crash or run for our lives.

    • eckids says:

      oh no! 13? I thought it would get better by then! Is it like spiders where we have to pretend we like them so they don’t chase us with them? I need to steel up a little bit or they’re totally going to terrify me as they get older! Thank you for the heads up:)
