Day 52: Complimented Parents
We recently took a trip up to Minneapolis to visit some friends. Although it was a lot of fun, it was exhausting. I'm starting to realize that once you have a kid, traveling is never the same. Every aspect of the trip was a little more difficult. Today, I grabbed lunch at a restaurant in an airport. Sitting at the table next to me was a family with three little kids all under the age of six is my guess. I caught myself thinking if I think a car trip for a weekend with one baby is a lot of work, I can't imagine what air travel with three would be like. Another thing I noticed while sitting at lunch was how well behaved these kids were. They even said "thank you" to the waitress when their food was brought out. So today, my act of kindness was a simple one, I simply walked over to the parents when I was leaving the restaurant and told them how impressed I was with how well behaved their kids were.
