    My husband and I are flying from Seattle to Orlando (about 5.5 hours) with our 17-month old son. We have not purchased a seat for him, but are considering it.

    We have read the safety information, but my only concern is that he won’t stay in the car seat anyway, and he will always be in one of our laps regardless. I would hate to buy a seat if he won’t even sit in it.

    He is a very squirmy guy, and generally does not do well in his carseat, especially if he sees other people. For instance, when I am sitting in the back seat of the car with him, all he wants to do is get out so I can hold him.

    On the other side, 5.5 hours seems like an awfully long time for him to sit on our laps. But I am just picturing him screaming his lungs if he is in the car seat. If that’s the case, I would obviously hold him.

    Has anyone else had any experiences flying with their child in their lap or a car seat?

    A guy I have been dating says he works for Bureau of Consular Affairs out of Chicago and Milwaukee. He claims his work is classified so can never talk about it. He also says that when he is called into work, he can not make calls even from his cell phone to tell me he has to break a date. He claims this is to ensure no security breachs. Needless to say I’m sick of being stood up and don’t know if I should believe his excuse. Does anybody know about federal employee policy. Am I being fed a lie, or should I believe that his job is top secret? I mean come on an employee can’t even call a girlfriend or wife to say they won’t make it to date?

    How long does it take to get the border pass? Does it cost a lot of money? What information must I supply? Where do I go to get it.Can I drive to the border and walk in to obtain this pass or do I need an appointment? I only want to visit the Brownesville area to go shopping and visit a friend for a day or two so what should I ask for?

    So far I have been taking megabus which is relatively cheap (about 8 bucks) to NY and from there heading to the airport on a cab which is more expensive…

    Is there a quicker easier and yet not overly expensive way ? I would have luggage so I really want to figure this out.
