The flight back was a tad bit disappointing. The airport was incredibly crowded and once we made it through security we had to make our way to the very last gate in the terminal----- once we arrived we had found that the gate had changed and had to make our way all the way back towards the beginning. There were no seats. We sat against the wall for 30 minutes while all the flights around us got cancelled---- ours didn't, but instead we had a three (four) hour delay. Of course, our gate was moved again not very long after--- and we were again stranded with no seats for half the wait. To top it all off, Marlowe was suffering from a fever (most likely due to teething--- she has no other symptoms other than lots of drool and biting mama). Marlowe nursed and fell asleep on me while we sat on the floor (again--- we had booked our flight to hopefully sync with nap time). Soon enough mama and sleeping baby moved to a chair to sit for the rest of the wait. Marlowe woke up in great spirits, made some friends, and then it was finally time to board the plane. The flight was long (not actually long, but felt long) and ridiculously crowded. We had a 14 year old boy next to us. He was happy to have Marlowe next to him and gave her tons of high fives and even offered to share his peanut butter sandwich with her. We kindly said no thank you. Again, no tears from Marlowe--- just lots of snacks and toys and a nap towards the end of the flight until we finally arrived to West Palm at midnight.
I'm pretty impressed with our first time solo-traveling experience. I wanted to hang my head and cry when the delay was announced, and head back to Worcester to my moms for another week. But I sucked it up and we both pulled through. I'm a lucky mama to have such a good little traveler by my side.
