    My father made many similar quips while I was growing up. Heck, he still makes those sort of comments.

    It was a joke. A dumb joke, but a joke nonetheless.

    People tell me, “your daughters (9 & 13) are soooo adorable”
    and I say, “yeah, you don’t live with them”.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Michael were to run away from home at any moment. His dad meant his quip in fun but it was really insensitive given that he already knows Michael is worried sick about the trip. Why don’t they buy a ticket for Ellie’s brother and have him escort Michael on the plane? I never did this to any of my kids…..just threatened to sell them.

    Mike’s old enough to travel by himself and get rid of his insecurities by taking the trip. I’ll bet when he gets back, he cant wait for the next time he can go somewhere unaccompanied. Having Phil babysit him on the flight would be totally counterproductive.

    Besides, if you don’t take him back, Grandma will send him back. You’re stuck with him.

    I took trips alone all the time. (to grandparent’s place.) It was a great adventure.
