No, I did not jeopardise the safety of all the passengers on the plane by posting this on the flight. I merely wrote the draft while I was struggling on the plane, unable to sleep. Good thing I took an hour’s nap at home before heading for the airport. Its just so impossible for me to catch any sleep on flights.
Sophia was surprisingly good tonight! She slept at about 9pm, which is a good time by her standards, but woke up when we carried her up to head to the airport. That was a bit of a bummer because I was hoping she would be able to sleep through it all but no matter, she was really good throughout the journey all the way till the time we boarded the plane! Surprising for a child pulled out of bed. Once the plane started taking off, she found herself a comfortable position in my arms and dozed off. But my inability to sleep meant I was too wriggly a bed so eventually I managed to put her on a seat and off to a deep sleep she goes. Meanwhile I’m exhausted but get no rest.
Here’s hoping she’ll be as easy as this throughout the trip!
