    Omg, I’m exhausted after reading that! You are a real trooper. There is no way I would or could do that. Totally amazing.

    I am so glad you arrived safely. It sounds as though you and the boys were fabulous! There is no way I could have done it.

    I am so impressed-you are amazing. I can’t believe you went that long without sleep-I would have fallen asleep for sure. Of course, I would never make that journey alone because I just don’t think I have it in me, so, again, kudos to you!

    Let me just say that I think you are absolutely amazing. I remember stressing about flying from boston to LA with my 3 little ones. And that’s only a 5 hour, non international flight.

    Oh my dear lord! It made me sick to my stomach just to read that- I can’t imagine surviving that long on that many flights with a 2 and a 4 yr old! You deserve a medal!

The grils will be in Argintina 2 week ahead of my brother and I, I just hope they handle the trip as well as you and yours.

    I think you must be a saint! I could have never done that with my 22 month old. I’m so glad you made it safely. That is insane the number of flights you have to take to get here! I don’t understand why they don’t let you have much to drink during the flight. I hope you have a great visit with your family!

    I’m speechless. You are a superhero!

    I do enjoy reading your posts on your travels, even though it’s probably not so fun living through it. I “saved” this post all day to read when I could really focus on it and not be interrupted.

    OMG! As I was reading, I kept thinking, poor Candice – she is one brave mama. I would have totally lost it – I traveled from NYC to Cali with my 3 y.o. on 2 planes and I thought THAT was a stressful adventure! Great job, mama…thanks for sharing, glad to hear you’re home.

    Phew! I read that whole thing and am exhausted for you! I can’t believe you didn’t sleep for one minute on that trip, woman!! Gosh, we flew with a 1yo from FL to Guam (and back), but I had a husband with me, and that was rough. I can only imagine doing it solo with TWO! My hat’s off to you, and I’m so glad y’all made it there in one piece. How great they were there to meet you!
