There was a preview of this story while I was at the gym but I left too early to hear what was going on. Now that I have read it.....I'm starting to worry a little about our first long haul flight to Australia at the end of this month.
Supposedly, the toddler was just very excited about being on the plane and would not stop staying 'Bye Bye, Plane'. And for this, the flight attendant asked the mother to give him some Benadryl! After refusing, they were both escorted off the plane. Thats discrimination against..............chatterboxes!
Aaron is a chatterbox. And, he learnt to recognize the word plane this week...he also looks for them in the sky whenever he hears them flying over.
While I'm a little worried about him being noisy on the flight, I'm more concerned with him getting himself overtired rather than worried about what other people will think of me. A baby is a baby....its nobody's fault that they are sometimes noisy or cry. Just as there will always be some people on planes who snore loudly, laugh out loud at funny movies or have smelly feet yet insist on taking their shoes off....there will be noisy babies on planes.
I've always accepted the babies that I've sat next to and I hope that other people will be as kind to me. After all, I will be the one sharing an economy class seat with a wriggly toddler for close to 7 hours.
