Whenever Sean goes on a flight, he brings along his two soft toys, Dogsby (a Ty dog) and Bryson (tortoise formerly known as Mary and formerly belonging to Brian), and a Carters blanket I had bought for him even before he was born.
On our flight out of Moscow last week, during take-off, I looked across to where Sean was sitting and saw this.
I think he felt his friends weren't getting a good enough view, so after a while, he carried them up for a better view from the window.
Yes, yes, Sean's 7 going on 8, and his only friends are still his soft toys. These two regular passengers take up half his backpack space. It's a good thing they don't require extra tickets!
