Traveling with a Baby

Becoming a mom is terrifying enough.  Then you realize you actually have to leave the house.  Ahhhh!  So, you’ve finally conquered that.  That trip to the grocery store wasn’t that terrifying after all.  But, now it’s time to leave town.  Oh no here comes that first trip.  How in the world do I travel with a baby, and with all of this stuff?  How do you get formula through the x-ray system?  Do they need a ticket? What if they get an ear ache from the altitude.  Where will they sleep?

Have a Thicker Skin

Do you remember that line in “You’ve Got Mail”? The one that says, “It’s not personal, it’s business.” I have always loved that movie, and I have always loved Meg Ryan’s response to that old saying:

Boston by Day, Fenway by night

We land, and I’m ready to jump off the plane. The second we get to the hotel, I put my running shoes on and go. We don’t have cars on the road, but that never stops me from seeing as much as I can, as fast as I can.

Working with the Thunder, and now the Rangers, has given me so many opportunities I never expected. Travel is just one of them. I never take for granted the moments or hours in each place – who knows when I’ll get another chance to do this!

From San Francisco to New York to Toronto, I have experienced these cities for the first time in the last few years. I can honestly say, of all the places I’ve been, Boston is definitely one of my favorites.
