I'm seriously considering flying to California in April to visit my sister Amy, but am a little weary of flying all the way across the country alone with an increasingly squirmy Soren. I was googling tips on flying with babies and came across this gem of advice which totally sealed the deal for me:
Wear spunky clothes and dark glasses so that other passengers think you are someone famous enjoying quality time with your kids.
Do they think your fellow passengers will be too distracted by trying to figure out who that famous mom is slumming it in coach to be annoyed by your kids? Or just that they will think "Bless her heart. That famous lady is bravely traveling without The Help. Lets cut her some slack." Regardless of what they mean, I'm totally doing it.
