hades anyone??

What do you get when you add a 20 month old boy (with an ear infection) with an airplane flight that was 2 hours delayed and 3 hours past the toddler's bed time? Oh let me tell you! It was such a fantastic time that I would highly NOT recommend it to anyone. My well intentioned trip with the boys turned into the Mommy vacation from Hades. While visiting my friend and her precious 5 month old son, my youngest came down with a wicked ear infection. Throw in a horrible ice strom that made us house bound and you have a delightful recipe for fun! It finally cleared enough for us to voyage to the airport to attempt to travel home. After several calls to the airline to make sure our flight was on time, I was reassured that our flight was still leaving and on time. But soon after arrival and check in I found out that was not the case. So there I sat with two over tired children, one of which was spiking a fever as I checked out bags. Luckily there was some room to move, though not much to choose from in the food department. Eventually we did make it home, a little worn and very tired but home none the less. Don't worry, I learned my lesson and will not be traveling alone any time soon!!
