Good morning! Happy Monday, friends! How was your weekend?

Our weekend was super low-key, but totally fine with us because we have a lot of adventures coming up, including Disney on Ice and a trip to Scottsdale with the whole Haupert clan. It’s been about 1.5 years since we last flew with Quinn, so, hopefully, things will go more smoothly this time. (I still think we’re scarred from that flight!) If you’re flying with a tiny human soon, here are some tips and advice from our cross-country flights: Baby on Board: Trips for Flying with an Infant and Staying Healthy & Sane with a Toddler on a 6-Hour Flight.

It was rainy and cold yesterday morning, and Mal let me sleep in, so we didn’t get moving until mid-morning. We had some errands to run on our To Do list, so we hit up our favorite cafe for some drinks and snacks to sustain us.

Lucky Finn is the cutest place, and I swear it just gets better and better every time we visit. I ordered a salted caramel latte made with cashew milk, and, my gosh, it was incredible. In fact, I seriously debated ordering another one!

We also shared an almond croissant, and Quinn enjoyed a macaroon with sprinkles – one of his favorite treats!

We played Go Fish and Tic-Tac-Toe, which were both a big hit with Qman. I actually bought a travel tic-tac-toe set for the airplane, so I’m glad he was so into it at the cafe!

While at Lucky Finn, we talked about how both Mumma and Dada had orange cats as pets when they were growing up. Quinn wanted to see a photo of the cats on our cell phones, but I told him we’d have to wait until we got home because we didn’t have any. He seemed really confused and actually got kind of upset because we’re always showing him photos on our phones.

It’s funny to think that photos from our childhood aren’t as easily accessible as his will be. It was definitely a “whoa, I’m old moment” for Mal and me. The majority of our photos are in albums and shoe boxes or on thumdrives and DVDs for the more recent stuff. Of course, when we got home, I dug out a photo of Corey (my orange cat) and me before my sophomore year Cotillion to show him. (My sister is laying back in a bean bag because she didn’t want to be in the photo. Haha!) Quinn was only semi-impressed. Ha!

Question of the Day

What’s your “whoa, I’m old moment”?



  1. We have traveled so many times with our son, who is now 2 yrs and 4 mos old. Right after he turned two, we moved from Seattle to Hong Kong, he did great on the flight but the aftermath/jet lag was awful. I’m going back to the USA to visit family in March so I hope it goes well. ;/

  2. Flying solo with my 18mo this week. We have flown a lot but I feel like this age is going to be challenging!!! Especially on my own with her on my lap! Gah! I understand the stress!!

    Hmmmm I have I’m Old moments constantly since I teach. Probably my master’s students recently not knowing who Prince was from the Halftime Show.

  3. My best “flying with kids” tip is painter’s tape! I have been flying from the East Coast to the West Coast with my two kids for several years now. It started when they were 2 & 4 and has become an annual tradition so we can visit family. Since hubby stayed home for these trips, I was juggling lots of stuff by myself (kids, luggage, car seats, strollers, etc.). My biggest fear was cranky kids disturbing an entire plane of people. As a result, I always packed lots of snacks and lots of stuff to keep them entertained. Turns out the best thing was painter’s tape. My kids had a blast creating all sorts of pictures/displays with tape on their fold down tray and window. Now that is comes in lots of colors I think it would be even more fun. Maybe the best use of it was to create “eyebrows” and “mustaches” for all! Best part — it all peels up and cleans up in moments and no sticky residue left behind.

  4. I was at a get together recently and one of the kids asked what year I was born in and I said 1984 – the response “oh my gosh guys she was born in the 1900’s too”

    WTH!!!! 1900’s!!!!

  5. I used to live in Scottsdale (went to high school there) now I live 10 minutes from there! I think Quinn would love the Railroad Park! http://www.therailroadpark.com/

    My I’m old moment will be when I turn 30 this summer 😉 but only for a second because I’m actually looking forward to being an adult officially? ha ha I feel like my 20’s were about pretending I’m an adult!

  6. My most recent Whoa I’m Old moment came during the anniversary of the Challenger tragedy. We were talking about our experiences that day and a coworker mentioned she had learned about it in history class.

  7. I had an “I’m Old Moment” a few years ago when I went to a Darius Rucker concert with a friend and her younger sister. He played a Sister Hazel song and we were singing along to it and she looked at us totally confused and said, “How do you know this song?” It’s been downhill ever since! Good luck on the flight.

  8. I felt old recently when I told my nephew how, when I was his age (15), my friends and I had to call each other’s home before cell phones and sometimes omg talk to our boyfriend’s parents, haha!

  9. My old moment is when my toddler asked me to fast forward through his dvr’d shows! Back in the day we had to sit through commercials. Sometimes I make him sit through the commercials (if I’m not trying to keep him distracted so I can get something done) because I want him to learn patience. These days everyone is accustomed to instant satisfaction/gratification/response with our phones and it scares me. I feel like we have so many more obstacles with raising our kiddos – electronics, social media, etc. But I wonder if our parents thought the same? ha!

  10. I work with kids, and my “woah I’m old moment” came when I referenced The Lion King and neither of the two kids I was talking to had seen it! Granted, the movie came out maybe 15 years before either kid had been born, but we all saw the classic, original Disney movies growing up, didn’t we?
