Ten Reasons Why Babies Cry on Planes

1 I have a vast audience – they’re gonna love me.

2 I like the new echo and resonance of my voice on this plane – I want to hear it some more.

3 I didn’t get my own seat – BAWL!

4 Call this puree heated, call this milk warm – they are both barely TEPID – BAWL.

5 These nappy changing facilities smell funny and leave me claustrophobic – HOWL.

6 What do you mean turbulence – I WANNA WALK AROUND…

7 I was meant to be in my cot two hours ago, one minute my routine matters, then, when it suits you, my routine goes out the window – HOWL.

8 The man next to mummy and daddy has clearly tired of me. WHY AREN’T I CUTE ANYMORE?  BAWL.

9 My ears hurt, my ears hurt, my ears hurt.

10 And finally – I can sense your anxiety and it leaves me uneasy – WAIL.

Oh, one more – Are we there yet?  Are we there yet?  Are we there yet?  No – HOWL.

      It’ll be way smoother than you expect just not like the old days when you sat back, watched an inflight movie and ordered a vino from the drinks trolley! Have a lovely trip.

      Sometimes I’m pretty certain the ‘fasten seatbelts’ signs go on so the drinks trolley can go around – just saying 🙂
