HELP! I NEED YOUR ADVICE!
So Julie and I are taking Gracie to Hawaii on Thursday afternoon, and it will be her first time on an airplane. We've heard the horror stories, so we asked you, what are your tips, if you've been through it?
Here's what you said...
*Make sure she has a pacifier or bottle to suck on during take off and landing
*Try to keep her up all day, so she'll nap on the plane
*Bring snacks, toys, etc. to keep her occupied
*Stay calm... babies can sense when their parents are anxious
No one mentioned Benadryl, which is what a lot of people suggest... I found that interesting, although I've heard horror stories about that too. Thanks for all the suggestions! We need 'em!
THE AMERICAN IDOL EXPERIENCE
Thinking about going to Walt Disney World next year to try the American Idol Experience? Go early in the day... you may win a "get out of line" pass for the next Idol auditions... Read all about it here.
FOUR WEIRD THINGS THAT ARE NORMAL
1. Wanting a star's salary, but not her job. 56% of women most envy celebrity's money; only 7% crave their careers. Yeah -- but how many want to be famous?
2. Wishing you lived next door to party girl Paris Hilton. She's women's second most desired celebrity neighbor, after Oprah. That's quite a spectrum -- from Paris to Oprah!
3. Turing to celebrity gossip to deal with bad news. "With Iraq and a recession, escapism is very attractive right now," says Jake Halpern, author of Fame Junkies.
4. Having higher regard for politicians. In a gallop poll, Hillary Clinton was voted "Most Admired Woman." (Angelina Jolie was the only actress in the Top 10.)
