If you waste as much time online as I do, you're bound to have seen this dad's funny account of taking his baby abroad for the first time. Unsurprisingly, it went viral.
But incase you missed it, the Mail reports:
"Matt Coyne, 41, from Sheffield, documented how his fears about heading overseas with six-month-old son Charlie matched up to reality. The frank and comical post - which covers topics such as sitting next to non baby-friendly people on the plane and their stroller being destroyed in the baggage hold - has now attracted 45,000 likes, 14,500 shares and 10,000 comments."
Not all of Coyne's post is fit to print but among other things, he writes:
"One of our worries about the flight was that we'd get seated next to someone unhappy about being near a baby. We hoped to be sat next to a kindly old Angela Lansbury type, with a soft spot for babies. In the end we got sat next to a woman who had a face like a cat's *rse being burned at the stake."
We've all been there, haven't we?! And, as Coyne points out, you don't have to board a plane to encounter someone who seems to have an innate dislike of children. I've come across them everywhere from the supermarket check-out queue to the flipping library.
I particularly identify with Coyne's comments about taking a baby somewhere sunny:
"Just a note on suntan lotion... let it dry off before picking them up or anything, otherwise it's like wrestling a seal that's just left a massage parlour , Charlie was in less danger from the sun than he was from me juggling him like a bar of soap."
I'll never forget the summer I smeared that funny coloured sun lotion all over my firstborn, believing it to be a brilliant way of keeping an eye on whether all his extremities were suitably smothered in sun protection. Well, he might not have suffered from sunburn that summer but he also retained a distinctly blue hue for about six months thereafter.
So Coyne's post cracked us up in the Playpennies office but it also got us wondering: what's the worst / toughest / thing you least expected about travelling with kids?
And if you've travelled abroad with little ones and survived to tell the tale, tell us this: what's your top tip for surviving a flight with a baby in tow?
