So I had to share my current situation, which by the time you read this I hopefully will be passed OUT!
But it was a long road to get to that point. The flights today were bumpy, that is first. My first flight had about half the flight shaking. The 2nd, the long one, so far has been the same. It’s been about 3-4 hours in and at least half the flight has been uncomfortably turbulent. I have to say thank God I took some Bonine. Now if I only could get ear plugs…
Yea I have a baby and a toddler behind me…. Oh there they go again, great! They have screamed and cried Nd kickenddj <— see! And kicked almost the whole time. I think they were quiet while they were eating and that lasted about 30 min. There is no way I can sleep, my headphones do a good job of drowning out the noise along with my music but still, the kicking.
This has brought me to one thing though. I think worse than a little baby or more specifically a toddler screaming is when the parent has lost patience and i see them to start border-line abusing to get them to stop. Seeing this mother discipline her son to the point of ripping out of his hand the paper he had and then pushing him down in his seat is hard. I felt terrible, I mean I hate the kicking and screaming but I understand it and would never want to be in that situation. I guess this is why I will be the pushover parent for the most part. Haha that will be great… Oh the screaming behind me….
Just as I see this happen, the mother disciplining her son, and as I expect things to get worse, I see the toddler smile and laugh because he thinks "Mom is playing with me." I immediately no longer feel a hole in my gut. Kids are amazingly resilient, they are truly gifts to everyone.
I then think, that little fucker, the mom should have hit him harder!! Weird huh? 😉
UuGgHhhhh he kicked me again!!
I love you Dad and Mom.
