I'm on a very full night flight to Newark from Atlanta. I'm stuck in a middle seat but not for lack of trying for an aisle. I'd rather have easy access to standing up instead of a seat with a view. It's a noisy flight with lots of chatter, kids screaming and video games. The passenger to my right is playing something on her hand held device that makes a constant clomping sound. Clomp, clomp, clomp, skreech....and it don't stop. And, she's right next to me. If the rhythm of this game was a half second quicker the timing would mix perfectly with the snoring guy to my left. And really, there ought to be a rule about bringing smelly food on an airplane. Right now someone's tuna sandwich is ruining the flight for many.
Holiday travel is top of mind. Gas prices, transportation delays and weather will all play into it. Misery might love company but the truth is travel for work, volunteering and to gather supplies is necessary in order to bond with those we want to share the season with. Putting a positive spin and providing up to date traffic info and travel deals and tips on traveling with kids could only endear you to her more.

- Here are some guidelines to help her buy safe toys:
- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission requires all manufacturers to follow safety guidelines. She should read the label and make sure the toy is certified by the CPSC. She can stay up to date on any possible recalls at www.cpsc.gov.
- Internet sellers are not required to alert anyone to any potential toy hazard. She should Google the toy to see if there have been any problems before purchasing.
