DD stood in the aisle pointing towards the exit screaming, "HOOOME! BEEED Mummy!"
"Is she always like this?" asked the snooty cow in the aquamarine twin-set.
"I don't know, I don't usually force her to stay up till 2am."
Seeing my expression Snooty Cow tried to backtrack. "I-I-I meant on aeroplanes," she stammered.
"She's two - she's not exactly a frequent flyer."
I acted aghast but actually I was beyond caring. When your 2 year old has a meltdown on an aeroplane at 2am there's little you can do.
After a while I persauded DD to sit on my lap and she eventually fell asleep.
