Quiz: What's relaxing about traveling with a toddler?

Answer: nothing.

However. Having a beer at the Logan airport in a super friendly bar where four strangers join in to speculate on who sang the St. Elmo's Fire song? Kind of great. Particularly since you've known all the lyrics to the past 10 songs - and so have they. And they're nice to your kid.

On to the next flight.

Goldfish are helpful. Pooh Bear is working out.

And? Beer is a nice product.


  1. Good for Pooh Bear. I'm glad he's doing his job. Have fun!

  2. John Parr! John Parr ftw! the original man in motion! (right?)

  3. Hey, if you've changed planes and not lost J, you're golden. And to Benjamin Franklin:

    "Beer is living proof that God loves us and wants to see us happy."

  4. Ah, beer.
    Now I can't think of anything else to say. Beeeeeer.

  5. LBM has a Monkey. He loves it! He just hasn't figured out the fine art of the leash-y part yet. He tugs and strains, falls onto his bottom, then gets up and goes about his business like, well ... nothing ever happened.

    Beer is wonderful! Have another, stay mellow and remember that no one will ever really remember you ... unless of course Big J has an uber melt down. Then you'll be their travel momento. :) It can be a good thing.

    Yes, I've traveled with a nearly two year old recently and that is how I am going to look at the situation. Period. No you can't talk me out of it.

    Good luck! Happy Thursday!

  6. I LOVE nice strangers and friendly bars where you can take your kid! It's the cure for what ales ya.


  7. A good beer makes everything better.


Tell me about it.
