Parents Hand Out 'Twin Survival Kit' to Fellow Flyers: 'We've Provided a Sweet Treat and Some Earplugs for Your Enjoyment'
"In case we decide to get crazy, we've provided a sweet treat and some earplugs for your enjoyment"
Flying with young children can be stressful. Especially when they’re not yours.
But one set of parents has at least acknowledged this while flying with their new set of twins, and the Internet approves.
Christina Galese submitted this story to the Facebook page Love What Matters over the Fourth of July weekend.
“As I was boarding a flight from EWR to Orlando today, I noticed most people pass up two rows of seats about half way down the plane. As I got closer, I found one row with a father and his 18-month old daughter and the other row with his wife and the daughter’s twin. Because I don’t mind children (and knew I had my headphones for later on, just in case) I opted for the window seat next to the father and one of the twins. The rest of the passengers boarded and the middle seat in between us was eventually occupied.”
“Before the flight took off, the parents passed around these goodie bags to the other passengers around them. Such a thoughtful, simple act of kindness that I am so happy to have experienced. And for the record, the twins were the most adorable and well-behaved little girls ever!! I never had to reach for the ear plugs once – the only time I opened the bag was to have a piece of chocolate.”

The note the parents passed out in the bag read as follows:
“Hello! Our names are Ashley & Abby. We’re twins, we just turned 18 months and this is our first time on an airplane! We are heading to FL to see Grandma & Grandpa, and Mommy & Daddy said something about a mouse. We’ll try to keep our cool, but in case we decide to get crazy, we’ve provided a sweet treat and some earplugs for your enjoyment. Thank you for understanding and enjoy your flight!”
Hey, if they’re this courteous at 18 months, we have high hopes about their future.
