Leaving on a Jet Plane........Hopefully!

We are supposed to be leaving out to visit our friends in VA. This will be the first time for the Munchkin to fly and all everyone has said is to make sure you have her birth certificate. We chose not to buy her a seat, because

1. She would most likely be in my lap the entire time anyway, and

2. We are extremely cheap, she won't be two until October so we are taking advantage.

So as we were reminded by all of our friends and the airline, DON'T.FORGET.BIRTH.CERTIFICATE. We made notes, mental notes, written notes, email notes and, note - notes.

Guess What? We don't have her birth certificate. Major SNAFU. We applied for her passport about 6 weeks ago and it was sent off with the pass port application.

Hubby called the airline and told them that we had the paper work we submitted to get her birth certificate, and they said that should be fine, should be.

Have fun! I've never actually been asked for the birth certificate at the counter. Good luck. :-)

Why would you need her birth certificate??

I've never been asked for Little Man's birth certificate either, always just had it "just in case". I think they only ask for it IF the child looks over two years old.
