I’m at the age when many of my friends are pregnant — or at least thinking about it. It seems that overnight our conversations have turned from boys to babies, and diamonds to diapers. Wedding invites have turned to baby announcements, and I now stare in amazement at the super-moms braving airport security with countless baby accessories in toe. Moms who travel with their children from the beginning rock — and I vow to be one of them.
One of my all-time favorite, fearless females, who’s traveled the world for business and pleasure (most recently seen looking fabulous, 7 mos. pregnant in Antigua) is expecting twin girls. So, I wasn’t surprised when I received her baby shower invite in the mail — and it was a PINK BOARDING PASS. Perfection.
The invite/boarding pass was identical to one you’d receive at the airport but far more fabulous, of course. It included my name, seat number (18A) and my destination; Boston, along with fun facts such as, “Twins average 650 diapers and 2000 wipes a month.” Whoa.
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve received “wow” invites before but nothing like this. This one was so incredibly personalized and appropriate for my glam-globetrotting friend. I have no doubt these lucky ladies will have passports before their first birthday.
Do you travel with your kids? Or will you?
