First I want to say my husband has never been on a Plane, like never! He has never owned a passport and doesn’t really see the problem with this. However Mark Warner Holidays are choosing 6 lucky families to be their blogger ambassadors and we really want to join them. This would mean D would finally have to get a passport!!!
Anyway back to the point of why I need to take J on a plane, J is plane mad, one of the firsts words he said was plane. J was delighted to point out and tell us every time a plane went past the front room window, we live relatively near the airport so as you can imagine this got tiring very quickly. Thankfully he has outgrown this now. J still like planes and his dad often takes him to the airport viewing park. In fact, I have been known to jump on a bicycle myself and go along with them. If I’m honest I don’t see what the big deal is going watching planes take off and land.
My dad works for BAE and he spent many years when I was younger trying to get me interested in what he did, sorry to this day all I know is ‘he has something to do with building planes’. I remember visiting his work on family day events and just being happy that I got a triangle highlighter pen, seriously that’s all I can remember. J would have loved to visit his grandad’s work with all the planes but they have since knocked it down and he’s been relocated.
I would like to think J would love the whole airport experience although from an anxiety point of view I would probably dread it. Since I met D 10 years ago I haven’t been abroad and my passport ran out several years ago. The last holiday I went on was to Turkey with my mum and Stepdad when I was around 15. I really want to take J abroad though because I’m sure the positives would outway the negatives. I couldn’t imagine what he would make of being up in the sky in a plane. When I was little I used to go to Spain every year with my grandparents and I loved it, even having to suck sweets as we took off to try and help my ears from popping. All these things create memories which are what childhood is all about.
J will have plenty of memories from holidays here in the UK, however, I want to start making memories with him abroad and becoming a Mark warner ambassador would be a great way to do that.
Where would your perfect holiday be?
