The Worst Airplane With Kids Story Ever

The funniest post I had the delight to run in my years of writing about parenting was an essay by Johanna Stein. She's a comic actor, producer, and director -- and the mother of a toddler who does not like airplanes. Or, at least, she did not like boarding one particular plane, which led her mother to frantically attempt to entertain her, which led to an unfortunate, but hilarious, encounter with an airsick bag.

Jojo has since created a video version of that essay. And as so many of you board airplanes for the Thanksgiving weekend, I offer this to you as a light-hearted respite. Or a cautionary tale...

Happy Holidays!
