these two saved the day. broke all my “cocooning” rules right off the bat on that flight home – but you gotta do what you gotta do. we tag teamed it while we ate at five guys (which we later realized made us all SICK!!!) – bottles, changing, me changing, medicine, etc. but we did it. and they went their way and we got on our flight to Houston.
This angel of a woman, who was on our first ethiopian flight, approached us at the gate and told us if we needed anything to let her know. She’s originally Ethiopian but lives in Canada and was going to Houston to visit her sister. but I think she was just an angel sent to us. turns out, she was on one of our rows (remember when I said we couldn’t sit together). SO – she took my middle seat, held Asher the whole way so I could sit by my hunny and take care of Camp. Oh praise you Jesus! I finally got a few minutes of shut eye and Asher was happy as a clam. (and I know that the real cocooning doesn’t start until we get home – thanks to a few of my adoptive momma friends for giving me that advice!)
made it to Houston. ran into some really excited Midland friends at the airport, had a few more friends on our flight 😉 both babies slept the whole way home…..
ahhhh. next post for all the airport party pics…
