As some of you who follow my Facebook know, I just went back to work after three months of glorious maternity leave. Two weeks ago, I decided to take Stela on a short vacation before I returned to work. For those of you who are not in the US, I should note that we have terrible maternity leave laws. In order to take off three months, I had to use up all my personal leave and take a month of unpaid leave (companies are only obligated to give you six weeks of short term disability). So, needless to say, this was my last little vacation for a while.
My sister had an interview in Seattle, so me and Stela joined her for the trip. For those who have flown with children, you can imagine my anxiety leading up to the big day. I have never gotten the chance to take Prince flying, so I was in new parental territory with this one. Given my daughter’s tendency to have diva moments, I had no idea what to expect from her on this trip.
