The Odyssey - Part 1

It was about 9a.m. when I realized that I had become my own worst nightmare. I was doing laps in the Tampa Airport pushing a stroller with a crying baby inside when I was forced to stop and argue with my 2-year-old daughter about whether or not she would be using the airport bathroom... while brandishing a toilet seat covered in Sesame Street characters. Five years ago when I was flying back and forth between Tampa and Dallas every month, I would have seen someone like me and thought, "That poor bastard."

Now it's me.

To be honest, the plane trips with the girls went pretty well. Both times that we flew we got to the airport early anticipating long lines only to discover we were the only people flying that day. In both cases we were the only car at the baggage drop and we didn't have to wait at all at security. In both cases we ended up spending two hours cooling our heels at the gate trying to keep the kids happy. Sam was in good spirits for the most part, spending the majority of her time standing in place and jumping up and down.... something she has elevated to an art form.

More to come...
