Those of you who have read my blog through the years know that international travel for me usually leads to disastrous events, hair pulling and ultimately awesome stories. So you can imagine that an international red eye with an 8 month old baby in the back of the plane struck a little panic in my brain. I was convinced I would run out of diapers and food or end up walking off the plane, sleepless, with food in my hair and poop on my clothes followed by many scowling eyes from the sleepless, innocent passengers who were stuck next to me. And that when I arrived in Munich, our bags wouldn't be there and I would have forgotten the stroller on the jet bridge due to delirium.
I was sure of it!
I'm sorry (due to the lack of a better story) to report that my flight was flawless! The airline had a bassinet that hooked up to the bulkhead. Nathaniel slept the first 10 hours of the flight then woke up to eat 2 bottles full of food and passed out again. No poopy diapers (which we payed for later on the drive and I did end up with some on my shirt. HA!) I had wifi so I got to text Bode a majority of the flight and make sure he was totally prepared with all of the necessities for a traveling wife and baby. I got airplane food which is a positive because I LOVE it. Our bags were the first ones off AND I even got flowers upon our arrival!
Hopefully our trip over here was an omen as to how the rest of the trip is going to go. So far, so good.
