Parents know how hard it is to manage two kids at once. Toddlers are full of energy, curiosity, and quirks, hence, it is advisable to give them undivided attention when they are under our care.
However, looking after kids is easier said than done. Especially when they are not in the comfort of their home. And nothing spells trouble like travelling with two kids alone. Fortunately for Becca Kinsey, a number of mothers sent from heaven offered their help and assisted her while she was traveling with her two sons.
In her Facebook post, the mother of two children aged 2 and 5, shared her unforgettable experience while she and her two sons were traveling back from Disney World. The mother shared how she only wanted to have a great time with her amazing kids when she realized how challenging it is to attend to her two sons at the same time.
“So I thought it was a good idea to fly by myself with a 2 yr old and a 5 year old we were standing in line in security, on the verge of tears because Wyatt was screaming and James was exhausted.” Becca shared on her Facebook account.
“Out of the blue, one mom stops the line for security and says ‘here, jump in front of me! I know how it is!’” Becca added, sharing the first incident that she received help from a fellow mother.
“Wyatt fell asleep and I was trying to carry everyone’s carry-on when another mom jumps out of her place in line and says ‘hand me everything, I’ve got it'” Apparently, another woman noticed Becca struggling to carry all of their baggage. Knowing that Becca needed help, the second woman generously offered her assistance.
“When I said thank you to both of them they said ‘don’t you worry, we’re going to make sure you get on that flight.’ The second woman takes evvvverything and helps me get it through security and, on top of all that, she grabs all of it and walks us to the gate to make sure we get on the flight.” Becca added, thankful for the women who were willing to extend help even without her asking.
If you think Becca finally had a peaceful time after boarding the plane, well you’re wrong. Apparently, Wyatt, one of his sons, was making a fuss and was screaming. Thankfully, the restless kid got tired and fell asleep again after the plane took off.
During this moment, a fellow plane passenger noticed Becca’s plight. Feeling for the exhausted mother, the lady with a heart made out of kindness and compassion approached Becca.
“After about 45 min, this angel comes to the back and says ‘you look like you need a break’ and holds Wyatt for the rest of the flight.” The thankful mother shared.
As it turned out, the good deed of the lady who held Wyatt did not stop there. After they have reached their destination, the kind woman walked Wyatt all the way to the baggage claim. Before parting ways, the woman even hugged Becca and greeted her and the kids with a warm “Merry Christmas!”
Becca also shared a photo of the kind lady who held Wyatt for Becca during their flight together with her Facebook post. Unsurprisingly, the photo and Becca’s unforgettable experience touched the heart of thousands of people. Now, the photo has become viral, reaching over 100,000 shares on Facebook.
A lot of Facebook users commended the three ladies who generously lend their time and effort to help Becca manage her two sons.
“God bless these women because God knows it’s hard being a mom and sometimes we can use that extra hand merry Christmas to those women.” A Facebook user praised the three kind women.
“Beautiful still a lot of amazing people in this world.” Another Facebook user said, restoring her faith in the kindness of humanity.
“This is who we all should be…as humans.” Another Facebook user shared, hoping that Becca’s story would set a good example of how we should help one another.
The true spirit of Christmas is all about love, generosity, and goodness. May the heartwarming story of Becca, a mother who was generously helped by not one, not two, but three women while traveling with her sons inspire us to do the same. In the celebration of the Christmas season, may we make one another’s Christmas even merrier by being kind and compassionate to one another.
