Aug30_Flying_SM

I took a break from blogging (the last two posts were scheduled) to get us settled at home. Our Friday flight was rather exhausting. Anna didn’t sleep a wink during the flight, and it was very difficult to keep her entertained for six hours. At least the flight wasn’t bumpy, so she could wiggle around and sit on my lap most of the time looking out of the window and talking non-stop. I think that’s how she kept herself awake – her “why-frequency” always increases dramatically while she is overtired. However, she managed to stay awake and without meltdowns since 4:30 am PST to 9:30 pm PST – I truly don’t know how she managed that. Fortunately, she immediately switched to California time, slept until about 8 am on Saturday and Sunday, and we were all taking nice long naps during the weekend. Hopefully she is rested enough for her first day in the new preschool. I keep my fingers crossed that she will like it, and we won’t have the same drama every school morning that we had in her last school. I have a lot to do on my last day of vacation, and tomorrow it’s “back to work” for me as well. Wish me luck – I could use another week of “staycation” after this vacation :)

I'm glad you arrived home safely and that Anna did so well on the flight. I hope she LOVES her new preschool! I'm anxious to hear how her first day went!

Glad you both made it back safely. Vacation leaves you tired doesn't it--funny how it works that way:-).

Hoping Anna's first day of new school is very, very happy for both of you! It was tough for Hanna until I found the right school for her and then it was smooth sailing from there on! Good luck and hope your first day back at work is a good one too!

So nice that you made it without a melt down! I have never took Z on a plane because I am just not prepared to deal with that.

Isn't it the truth that you need a vacation from your vacation? LOL
