She is traveling alone with no reinforcements to help with the kids. The baby is already fussing quietly and the toddler is swinging his arms and pushing to get to his seat. They pass and sit in the row directly behind you. The toddler sits down and starts playing a game on his iPad with the volume up as loud as it can go.
