Carry On Baby

As a mother of four, I can attest to the difficulties of traveling with children, especially infants. I wonder sometimes if there is an easier way to travel with small children. I think an Egyptian couple have found the solution to our traveling problems.

You see this creative couple was stuck in the airport in in the United Arab Emirates with their infant, because they didn’t realize their baby also needed a visa to travel. The anxious parents did not want to wait the two days it was going to take to get the visa, and decided to sneak their little bundle of joy on the plane. How did they do this? Well, they simply stuffed their baby in their carryon luggage.

However, airport security suspected something was amiss, when junior was suddenly missing. Customs agents scanned the couple’s bags and were shocked to find the little tyke nestled in with mom and dad’s unmentionables.

Shock of all shocks, the impatient parents will have plenty of time to cool their jets in jail and face the possibility of losing custody of their child. What do you think? Should babies be down-graded from coach to carry on?
