Twins - The Real Facts

Parents flying with twin toddlers for the first time pass out 'goody bags' to fellow passengers

A family flying with 18-month-old twins offered their fellow passengers a special treat before taking off, just in case the babies got out of hand.

A woman shared a photo and the story with the Love What Matter Facebook page, explaining that before the flight took off, the parents of the 18-month-old girls passed out goody bags filled with candy, earplugs and a note.

“Hello!” read the note. “We’re twins, we just turned 18 months and this is our first time on an airplane! We are heading to FL to see Grandma & Grandpa, and Mommy & Daddy said something about a mouse. We’ll try to keep our cool, but in case we decide to get crazy, we’ve provided a sweet treat and some earplugs for your enjoyment. Thank you for understanding and enjoy your flight!”

The woman said the toddlers were extremely well-behaved and didn’t make a single peep the entire flight from Newark, New Jersey, to Orlando, Florida.
