Winning OOTMOB: The solution to no-frills airplane trips:
"We recently returned from a harrowing trip to Mexico with our 3 1/2 year old and our 10 week old. Exhausted and cranky after a series of canceled and delayed flights, we were SO ready to board our plane for the last leg of the trip.
Just before boarding, I bought our daughter a bagel and cream cheese to eat en route. This particular flight didn't allow us to pre-board (despite having to lug two little ones, a carseat and two strollers!), so half of the passengers were already on the plane by the time we made our way down the jetway.
Our daughter was so excited to be going home at last that she snatched the bagel bag from my hand and ran all the way down the ramp screaming, "hey, everybody! I've got the snacks!!!!!"
Congratulations Abbey from Vancouver who now has $25 to spend at Raspberry Kids! Thank you to everyone who continue to submit their OOTMOBS!
Thank you for reading and have a fresh, healthy & fun day. Today and every day,
Chief Executive Mom
