The parents of 14-week-old twins boarded a flight and passed out “goody bags” to their fellow passengers. The bag, containing treats, also included the following message.
“Hello! We’re twin baby boys on our first flight, and we’re only 14 weeks old. We’ll try to be on our best behavior, but we’d like to apologize in advance just in case we lose our cool, get scared, or our ears hurt. Our Mom and Dad (AKA our portable milk machine and our diaper changer) have ear plugs available if you need them. We are all sitting in 20E and 20F if you want to come by a get a pair. Have a great flight!”
A Reddit user, who posted a photo of the goody bags, applauded the parents for their courtesy and dubbed them “brilliant and generous.” Some, however, were confused by the efforts. A fellow passenger felt it unecessary, commenting that the passengers are ”all adults who can understand that babies are prone to bouts of crying.”
Although it seems the pre-apology wasn’t necessary, the user reported that, ”the parents were fantastic, and the kids were better than would be expected.”
