I think my little princess did great through the whole flight from Texas to South Korea. That was a 14-hour flight and she did not throw a single fit. She just played with stickers, watch Cinderella movie, read a storybook, and slept.
But when we have already landed in Manila, she began being irritable we were getting off the plane. We woke her up in the middle of her sleep and she didn’t like it. But we had to. At the airport, she was miserable. She was throwing a fit, crying out loud, and wiggling – trying to get out of the stroller. The crowd, the line, and the noise at the airport added to her irritability. My husband and I was feeling frustrated already waiting at the baggage claim area to get our stuff. The whining did not stop until we’re out of the airport. When the hotel shuttle picked us up, my darling daughter stopped crying. We can tell that she was tired and sleepy.
The hotel bed looked very inviting. We couldn’t wait to lay down and sleep. But we had to get cleaned up and eat something. As soon as we’re done, we snuggled and went to sleep in no time. We got up at about noon the next day. Ah, traveling with a toddler is sometimes frustrating.
