For his 9th birthday Mattson wanted nothing more than to visit Grandma and Grandpa in Sweden. After some intense planning, some very generous grandparents, a very generous father and very nervous mother, Mattson was booked on his first SOLO, international flight. I did have a wake-up call while waiting for the flight I needed to run to the restroom in the Coffee shop. I turned to make Matts come with me and realized that I was about to put him on a 2 1/2 hour flight by himself, so he just may be able to handle sitting by himself until I got back.

Needless to say, he had a fantastic time, was completely indulged and is already saving his money to buy another ticket. Luckily, as he points out, it just needs to be one-way because, he's not sure when (if) he'll want to come home again.
