Have you ever boarded an airplane with your baby/children in tow and have the other passengers give you the:
- Stink eye
- Eye roll
- Exasperated sigh
Sheesh. When you are traveling with children, it’s bad enough that their little ears get aggravated by the altitude, that babies are impossible to change in the tiny airplane bathrooms (I can barely fit my own fat ass in there), and little children need constant activities: books, mazes. stickers, video games, snacks, drawing.
Oops. The crayons drop and roll all the way to the back of the plane.
When a child travels, the child deserves respect. And so does his mother.
Who says the extra-large guy who takes up more than his share of the seat is any better? You know, the guy who hangs over the arm rest and spills onto YOUR side?
So, the next time you are boarding the airplane and you and your children get the stink eye, eye roll, or exasperated sigh, just smile back.
