Home at last
We landed in Detroit this morning at 7am. The kids did pretty well. Cassie slept through about half of the actual flying time; Chloe about a third. Two little problems along the way. First, Chloe had a diaper blowout on the way from Guangzhou to Los Angeles. She had been squirming for a while, and apparently the diaper shifted out of position, so most of the "stuff" went elsewhere. And by elsewhere, I mean pants AND socks. And it was the latter that was the problem. Momma is a pretty good planner, so she had extra pants packed in the carryon luggage for just such an emergency, but socks? Why would we need an extra pair of socks? Chloe made the rest of the journey in pajamas. Shoes, but no socks. The second little problem came in Los Angeles, where Delta decided that they couldn't find our reservation. It apparently didn't matter that they charged our credit card, or that they sent us an email 24 hours earlier asking us to register our flight. We were able to resolve the problem after about 45 minutes at the ticket counter (no exaggeration). Delta has bolted up to the top of our list of REALLY CRAPPY AIRLINES.
But that's all behind us now. We're home. Jet-lagged, grumpy, tired, sore, etc. A 37 hour nap sounds good right about now. Tehya and Sage are back from the vet. We are now a complete family of 4, or 6 if you count the menagerie. Either way, that number sounds about right.
For your fix, just a few pics:
