Whenever we go on hols I hide the toys I'm going to take for dd (23m) for a week or so before, then when she gets them on holiday it's like she's getting them for the first time.
When we went to Majorca she spent most of the flight taking the in flight magazine and sick bag out of the seat pocket and putting the tray thing up and down. Thankfully my BIL was sat in front of us. The flight went remarkably quickly as I was dreading it too, but she was fine. A drink for take off and landing so their ears don't pop is a good idea.
dhw were going with parents inlaw and they have chosen marmarus wouldnt be my choice, but anywhere i can get some sun is fine by me. where are you going? ive seen thes mats that you draw on or paint without the mess do you know the one i mean i thought that could be fun.sm thanks for reminding me of take of etc.feels like i havnt been away for donks.
