Parents flying with 18-month-old twins give earplugs and chocolates to fellow passengers
Babies can be unpredictable, making air travel a gamble for both parents and those sitting within earshot.
One couple traveling from Newark, New Jersey to Orlando, Florida with their young twin girls got ahead of the situation by passing out goodie bags to fellow passengers, reports the Huffington Post.
The contents included chocolate, earplugs, and a note.
It read, "Our names are Ashley & Abby. We're twins, we just turned 18 months old 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!"
Christina Galese, one of the recipients, shared a photo of the goodie bag and the note on Facebook.
Galese noted, "...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."
