When Silence is Hard to Find
Flights back to Australia from the States are usually during night time, so it's often easier to try and get some sleep. However, when you have a toddler who is not a happy flier and spends the majority of the time crying, it makes sleeping difficult. The other kids on the plane did great, but this one child could not be consoled, which did not make for a fun 12 hours from San Francisco to Auckland. In addition, the Auckland to Melbourne leg had a fussy baby (but at least that was only a 3 1/2 hour flight). I tried to block out the noise by listening to music and watching some episodes of Modern Family as well as the movies Something Borrowed and The Switch. I am glad to be back in Melbourne, but not surprisingly I feel a bit tired. We will see how long I can manage to stay up today.
