Babes on a plane
These parents of twins warned passengers about their potentially flight-interrupting kids.

"Thoughtful parents handed this out to everyone on a flight. These parents deserve a medal. #AwesomeParents." This was tweeted by @RecoilPaintball and we couldn't agree more!

The note reads: Hello! We're twin 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 and get a pair. We hope you have a great flight!

I can't applaud these parents enough! And not only for the bag of sweeties but for not expecting other passengers to just put up with screaming babies on a flight. Whether you're a parent or not, a crying baby is never fun when trapped on a plane for a long time.

In fact traveling with kids of any age is often not fun for anyone. Especially mom and dad!
