10 Items Parents Should Take in Carry-On Bags

I travel often with my kids and while it’s much easier now as they’re getting older, I still remember the horrific time with one baby in a carrier, the other standing beside me trying to manoeuvre in a tiny airplane stall. And then there’s the flight where at least one child has cried for 9 straight hours. Yes, I have experienced flights from hell, and lived to tell the tale.

Air Canada with Kids

air canada with kidsAir Canada and the art of travel.  But with kids and babies.  It’s interesting what a sense of entitlement we feel when we’ve given birth.  I walked into the Toronto airport, very grateful that the limo driver had a carseat in his trunk.  (For the price of the ride I could have gotten some pretty hot jeans, but all is fair on travel days).  Waiting in line, I approached a lovely female Air Canada agent, simply expecting that she would agree that stopovers while venturing across the country with a child were absurd.  No matter.  A friendly banter, the baby acting extra cute, and $75 for the change, and all was settled. She was a Mother.
