Before Brody, flying for me meant I could pack the night before and be ready to go the next day!
Things are a little different now.
About a week before our flight to Arizona I started packing a suitcase for Brody and myself. Seventy-five pounds worth of clothes, toiletries, and an extra feeding machine later it was exactly 24 hours before our departure from Omaha.
As I was continuing to pack and making sure I had my boarding pass on my phone and my ID in my wallet, an uneasy feeling took over. Brody doesn’t have a passport or other form of picture ID – how is he supposed get through security?
As any new and frantic mother would do, I went straight to Google: “How do infants show identification for flight”. O.K., easy enough, all we needed to bring was his birth certificate.
