Saturday Top Five Laughs- Come join our #BlogHop

Hi everybody! I am back and ready to start my Saturday Top Five Laugh Blog Hop again! I am excited to go through and see what funny posts link up this week. I missed reading them the last two weeks.

As usual, please link up only funny posts, cute posts, or top five laugh posts. If you would like to help me promote this giveaway via social media sites, please do but this is not mandatory. Same for taking my button! If you do take my button and/or help me promote the hop, I appreciate it!

So for my laughs this week, I am going to start them with what happened on the 12 hour airplane ride to Hawaii. We got so many laughs from this trip that I will separate them for the next few weeks. These laughs solely revolve around flying with Hayley.


5. I am deathly afraid of flying. I used to have to take valium to fly but recently have been flying successfully without it. I HATE take off. So, I was sitting next to Hayley when we were taking off and she kept telling me, “Mommy, look at us go up in the sky”. “Mommy, why aren’t you looking?” “Mommy, we are going high.” I tried to put on a brave face for my daughter but my hands were sweating profusely.

4. We took an overnight flight back from Oahu to Newark- A LONG FLIGHT! Hayley slept the whole way but she has some gas when she sleeps. I was slightly embarrassed when she tooted in her sleep. Of course, most people were sleeping but still:)

3. When we were landing, Hayley screamed, “Mommy, we are going down”, “Mommy, the plane is going down”. Lovely sentiment for her mother who hates to fly!

2. Hayley really has no sense of time yet. So, when we boarded the plane in Rhode Island to go to our first layover Chicago, Hayley says, “Mommy, we are in Hawaii now.” No, Hayley, we are only gearing up to take our first flight. Then when we landed in Chicago, she said, “Mommy, now we are officially in Hawaii.”- NO, Hayley:)

1. This is an old laugh from her flying about a year ago. We hit an extremely turbulent flight and Hayley loved it. She screams, “Mommy, this is the best ride ever.” Everyone was cracking up!

Now your turn. Let me know your laughs!

    Omygoodness, I am cracking up…especially that she tooted in her sleep! That is so something Steve would do. LOL
    Awww I’m sorry about your fear of flying…I didn’t fly until I was 25. We were on our way to Miami for a cruise. I held on to Steve and cried the first ten minutes. I didn’t know what to expect.
    I laughed out loud that she said “this is the best ride ever!” – what a cutie!
    Loved your laughs!
    I hope your first week back is going great, Melissa!
    Have a sweet weekend, my friend!

    Too cute! Hayley’s “We’re there!” announcements reminded me of several years ago when I was getting ready for a trip to FL with my kids; my 10yo was a toddler at the time, and we were going for a walk a few weeks before the trip. He asked for his water bottle, and even though he acted like it was kind of heavy he said, “That’s okay, Mommy, I’ll carry it to Florida.” As if we were leaving right then – and WALKING there!

    Thanks for hosting the hop!

    I also HATE to fly!! But having to care for 2 kids is a great distraction. My oldest was 2.5 the first time he flew. As we took off in RI he loudly proclaimed “We gonna CWASH!!” Great.

    I think Hayley is hysterical! God gave you her to help you fly without anxiety. My favorite by far is the best ride ever. I love the tooting in her sleep – that’s a great memory to bring up later in life ;)
