Everything that right with the flight to London, went wrong with the flight to New York.
First off Cinco woke everyone up at 5am with a nosebleed. Our flight was at 11:35am— so there was a lot of time to kill.
I was also flying solo with the kids–which made things a lot harder! Both kids had to go everywhere with me at the airport…
The Captain booked us tickets on Virgin America with a 35 minute layover. Sadly, that connection time proved to be something of a problem. So we had to get booked on a later flight, ok… But that meant changing the car we had meeting us at the airport and arriving at our final designation at 1:30 in the morning.
But, we boarded the plane not knowing if our luggage was going to make to JFK.
I had three different sticky drinks spilled on me. The kids went to the bathroom about 7 times between the two (no joke). And the screens to watch movies on board kept freezing up! Oh the joy.
I brought fewer mom prizes because we ended up not needing as many on the trip to England and I didn’t want to be bogged down. So, that made the kids a little cranky.
But we did have a good time reading a Judy Moody book and making owl crafts. The kids also put on an owl dancing and signing show.
