5. Flight Attendant

The only rule for flying with a baby is: make sure the baby is sucking on something when the flight goes up and comes down. Because of his ears.
That’s what everybody told me.
On the flight home from New York, we were preparing for descent, and I was glad to see that Charlie was sucking his thumb.
Then a flight attendant stopped alongside us. She reached over, pulled Charlie’s thumb out of his mouth, put it into her own mouth, spat it out, said, “Ew! Boy germs!” then hurried on down the aisle.
That is a true story.
The consternation on Charlie’s face. To be honest, he and I were both in shock.
