I left my Husband and Still-nursing Son in Another Country on Accident

(<-- WORST decision we make all day) My parent’s grab a table and the 4 seats and take Charletta with them.  I am battling bicyclists to get our giant double stroller on the train.  After they finally get their bikes loaded and I get the stroller situated the door to the train closes and the train starts moving. IT. STARTS. DRIVING. AWAY....."

Part Two: Braving Europe – Travel Days
