And then I made a crayon roll, so she can do some coloring. The goal is for her to sit reverently on my lap the entire flight, wearing her sunglasses, quietly taking the crayons in and out of the pockets, and sketching the profiles of the people sitting on our row.
If that plan fails then I've got 200 stickers, a new animal book, plenty of snacks, a small stuffed dog that pants when you squeeze him, four plastic insects, two miniature slinkies, 20 fake gold coins, and about thirty new pages that I added to her picture book. And a blankie. Maybe she'll just want to cuddle the whole time? That's an idea.
