Juice at altitude
Like most five-year-olds, Noah spends a good deal of his time eating and drinking. It's the only way his little body can find the energy to essentially be a blur on the landscape.
Our little guy's favorite beverage is apple juice. So when the flight attendant asked what I wanted to drink, I asked for a cup of my own. And I said please, of course.
(As an aside, the looks on the faces of my fellow passengers as I whipped out my camera and took this bizarro picture were priceless. I'll do it again in a heartbeat, and I heartily recommend you do the same.)
Even though I was far away from him and the rest of my brood, drinking his favorite drink somehow made me feel a bit closer.
Your turn: What (usually little) things do you do to close the distance between you and your close friends and family?
