“You can open your eyes Jenko”

“No… no… I will fall”

“You won’t fall”

“I can feel it… why did you bring me here? I want to go home, mommy”

“Jenko… open your eyes… you won’t fall… trust me… mommy is here”

“See you are here… next to mommy… and your sitting all secured here”

“I will not fall right?”

“Absolutely not. Now look there can you see what’s there outside?”

“No… I don’t want to look there… but…what are these??? Mommy are those tiny little houses for tiny little men?”

Rona smiled, Jenko’s first flight was becoming smooth gradually.

    Dear Tina, Cute story and reminds me of one of my sons' first flights. He was scared – and I was probably more scared, but had to put a brave face on for his sake. Off to the right of the plane, there was a tornado on the ground in St. Louis, Missouri, USA, and the plane was tossing back and forth and I told Steven, "Whew this is fun!" So, he thought it was too. Love your story of Jenko's first flight. Great job! Nan 🙂

    Awww I love that. I remember seeing little houses on my first flight. It was a round trip in a little Cessna.

    Jenko's anxiety is well understood and his affectionate mom is pacifying him. A lovely story of a mother-son relationship.

    Well done. Actually, that wasn't a child on the plane–that was me. Lucy
