Why is this trip different than all other trips"

OK, maybe not *all* other trips, but certainly recent ones.  I'm actually traveling without Shira or our 1 year old.

That's right, no stroller, car seat, diaper bag, pack-n-play, car seat, extra diapers, soy milk or snacks.  And no little boy to keep calm, entertained and happy.

It's just me and my day pack.

While I don't miss all the schelping, though, truth be told our trips haven't been too painful in the Stuff department.  We've been able to leave the pack-n-play at home and use one at our destination, rent a car seat with the car, use a stroller that is lightweight and fits in the airport scanners, and Shira and I typically share a carry-on which means I carry the one bag and she takes the boy's diaper bag.

And, of course, I do miss the fun of watching our little one take in the whole airport experience.  He's actually started pointing out airplanes in the sky above our home, and I'm sure he'd be thrilled to see planes up close. (Of course, he's elated to see busses, fed ex trucks and anything else that's big and has wheels.)

Oh dear, as I was typing out this message I learned my flight is delayed for mechanical reasons.  My flight just got pushed back 1hr. Hmmm, maybe not having a baby to entertain right now is a good thing.
