So, while the east coast was having the craziest week ever – earthquakes and hurricanes – we were in the midwest enjoying a quiet and relaxing week with my grandparents. Mareto got to meet his GREAT grandparents for the first time ever!
We flew out on a Sunday afternoon. Virginia to Georgia was 1 1/2 hours and Georgia to Illinois was another 1 1/2. For those of you who know my sweet, content, and good natured little boy you will understand how shocked we were when he completely flipped out on the first flight. I mean, he had a total melt down the entire flight. Truly. We arrived in Atlanta feeling like we’d been through a war. I have no idea what happened, but shortly after take off he lost it and nothing we did worked. It wasn’t his ears because he sucked his bottle until he were ascended all the way and then he lost it… in fact the only times he didn’t cry were when the plane took off and descended and landed. Go figure. Thankfully there was a little girl sitting behind us on the second flight. Mareto adores other children, so he stood on my lap most of that flight and looked over the seat at her. Lots of laughing and chattering. It was a much more pleasant experience. Anyway, we finally arrived in Illinois and had a wonderful week!
