Airport Horror - Crazed and Confused
We went on to enjoy the week away... no flaws, fights, or anything.
Then it was time to pack up and leave. The anxiety sets in. Did we really have to do this again???? Our flights were later this time so we had our fingers crossed that lil man would be tired. You think he was?? Nope. This time though to HIS bag of tricks he added cold cock punches to his fit. Man, I must be missing something here on this parenting gig if i cannot get him to calm down. This flight was filled with death stares, punches to the face, flight attendants bringing treats to make him happy, and 2 very tired parents.
After the last flight, my husband and I were spent. My in laws came to pick us up and as they hugged me hello I lost it.... tears came flying out of my face. I couldn't hide it or explain it to them. The overwhelming emotions and feelings I had were indescribable. They must have thought I was a crazy person.
I did make it out alive (with some bruises). I do want to know if there are any other mom's out there that have had similar situations and/or have any solutions that have worked well for their "wild" child on a plane??
