A fun memory I want to make sure I write down for myself is how there were literally a ton of kids on the plane. I asked the flight attendant later on and she said 43. We found out later when we were picking up luggage that one of the military units were flying over. Most of them had never been on a long flight before so all the kids were crying the whole time and very unhappy. I was so flattered when all 3 of my kids were zonked out about 2 hours after taking off and the flight attendant came up and complimented me on what a good job I was doing and that most of the parents probably want to know my secret. I said, "Benadryl and Melatonin!" :)
There was also a really nice older man who was chatting it up with the flight attendants. I overheard them when I got up to go to the bathroom. While I was waiting, he went back to his seat and the flight attendant told me how kind this man was. He saw a member of the military in uniform walking on the flight and gave up his First Class so this soldier could have it. I kinda wonder what he thought when a whole slew of them walked on later. You only have to make a difference with one, right?
