…or duet, in my kids’ case.
Today we are sending our kids on their first flight alone to visit their grandparents. Luckily, it’s only a 30 minute flight and they are experienced enough with trips that I think they will do fine. They are 7 and 10.
I was around 19 the first time I flew alone. I flew to Cleveland, Ohio from Houston. I had a wonderful time! I was invited to the back of the plane and got to do the end-flight landing announcements. I put on my best flight attendant voice, “Ladies and gentlemen, the captain has turned on the seatbelt sign. Please fasten your seatbelts and we hope you’ve had a pleasant journey.”
I actually got a bit of applause from my fellow passengers. I wonder if my kids will get the same opportunity. Maybe it’s different with a 7 and 10 year old. I imagine they would sing the Pokemon theme song and then head back to their seats. I bet they would get applause too though.
