I don't know, man. If I have kids, I can't imagine traveling with them until they can sit still for a minimum of five hours and entertain themselves, not to mention take bathroom breaks by themselves. I don't know how parents do it. Traveling with small children should be an Olympic sport because the parents who do it all deserve medals. They are professional-level athletes of the highest caliber.
If you have ever been on a plane with a screaming baby, trust that no one is more embarrassed, more exhausted, and sorrier than that baby's parents. It just sucks all around. And then, you get to your vacation destination, and your kids are whining and they don't want to do anything and they're tired and they're cranky and you spend a week dragging them around while they're crying and hating everything. And then you hate your vacation, it's miserable, and you just want to go home and sleep. Ever been there? Then these tweets are for you.
This pretty much sums up what it's like to travel with kids.They are lucky they're cute because otherwise they would be straight-up evil monsters.
