You don't have to have kids to know that traveling with them isn't easy. They make noise, they poop their diapers, they are the very definition of unpredictable. So imagine how difficult it must have been for a mom to be traveling on an airplane with not one baby, but two. That's right—twins.
A post on the popular Facebook page, Love What Matters, tells the story of an overly full flight on March 10. The flight attendants put a car seat belonging to a mom traveling with twin babies into storage, along with other customers' carry-on bags, to try to make room for everything. Unfortunately, taking the car seat meant the mom would now have to hold both twins on her lap for the duration of the flight. Not an easy task, but what choice did she have, since she had no car seat. Well, the flight attendants didn't think she could handle it, either, so they asked her to leave the airplane. (I know, it makes no sense.) But then a kind stranger offered to hold one of the babies for her, and the day was saved.
The stranger was traveling with a young child of her own, and when the little girl began to fuss, the mom told her, "Our job is to help other people. This mom is all by herself with no help, and really needs another mom to help." And help she did, feeding the baby, burping him, and singing him to sleep.
The anonymous post continues, "My heart still feels fuzzy. Moral of the story is when you see people needing help, do the right thing and help them."
