don't do it

do not EVER travel on a plane with three children under five. EVER. just dont even think about it.fuckin crackhead nightmare beyond words. Dont worry, it will get words. Makes me want to start hyperventilating more than birth story. No story till can get to a computer as left mobile charger in car. and that was before I went 30 hours and counting without sleep. now? at this very moment I should probably be institutionalised. just bought bloody kitchen towels instead of loo paper. organic though. right, cant waste precious battery on u lot. sdgh&ql

Oh...shit..I thought I was in rough shape at the moment but sounds like you get the prize. Hang in there darling. Give the kiddies to family and find a nice cozy corner to pass out in. Hugs to you-know what you are going through-been there.

I have done 2 under 3, but for 3 under 5 you deserve a medal! I always thought that long-haul flying with young children is like giving birth, once you start you can't quit part way through, otherwise everyone certainly would give up midway. I hope that like a birth, it proves to be worth it in the end!

power to you for getting through it and doctor Heather prescribes some good NZ wine (preferably served with good NZ cheese and crackers) to get you over the after effects!

ailsa said...

Was wondering how it would go - at least the return can only be better, right? !!

Hope you have a great time with your family and there isn't too much drama to deal with.

ah..sounds like you need to up the dosages on the way back..
Hoping you can collapse in a corner for a while and let others take care of stuff, preferably with a bottle of chardonnay and a big fat souvlaki or mound of fish and chips. xx

I second Heather's comment

oh shit!
at least we know you are actually in nz and didn't end up somewhere else.
i'm freaking out now about doing it with 1 in a month or so...

We all kind of knew you were crazy, can't wait to hear the full story!!
Hang in there have loads of good kiwi food and wine to calm you down!

Bryn said...

Crap. (((HUGS!!)) Def. up the dosage for the return trip. Better yet, send Hub ahead w/ 2 kids! Enjoy your time w/ the fam, give GWMum a hug from all the bloglettes!

Grace said...

Glad you made it safely there. Sorry you had such a rough time.I can't begin to imagine how it went. Hope all goes well with your visit with Mom. from Mimi in Ky.

As I was breaking down in tears in the back of the airplane on the floor, the bathroom, and my seat with my one unruly child, I was thinking about you and wondering how you were going. Maybe it was something in the air, and just a bad day for flying with toddlers. Hope your time in NZ allows you to forget the flight, and that things go MUCH better on the way home. Big, huge hugs!

achan said...

So what are my chances for 3 under 6? and I won't have hubby! Then again was he a help or a hinderance??

Well the flight is over now go give ya mum a HUGE hug. That's why you're there :)

Glad to read that a zip-locks fishing in the Ocean isn't need at the moment. :-)
I'm sure that in the future you will feel it like a child birth: expectations, so-much-pain-damn-you, I'm not going to do it ever again, it was totally worthy let's do it again!
Enjoy yours family and your vacation (^_^)
