After reading stories in the media about the “mommy wars,” I assumed that other moms would be judgmental and closed off. Thankfully, this has not been the case. I was reminded of graciousness of other parents on a recent plane trip. My son missed his nap and was having a total meltdown – nothing made him happy. Out of the blue, the dad of two boys sitting nearby came over with a lollipop and a smile. While the lollipop didn’t help, I appreciated the gesture. It wasn’t condescending, it was helpful and given with a spirit of having been there before. I hope I can do the same for someone else.
“That” Mom likes to read, research things online and look forward to the days when flying is no longer traumatizing!
