Greetings from Shorter Designs! This month I am celebrating 10 years of marriage to my wonderful husband with a cruise to Alaska. Together we agreed that we wanted to take our two year old daughter along with us. As many of you know, and we are soon to figure out, traveling with a child is difficult. Because our daughter is not quite two yet, we are saving money by not buying her an airline ticket. Airlines allow you to designate a child under two as riding with you. You can save money this way, but you are gambling that you will have an empty seat near you.
