  1. Hey #BLM sister! Thought I’d stop by and show you some love and uh, you really are super mama. I just trekked through an airport while pregnant with at toddler on my back but that was NOTHING compared to the pregnant flight attendant who kept the constant smile on her face. Thanks for all that you do because trust me, it doesn’t go without notice.

  2. Flying has always been a dream of mine. love bring in air and my 3 year old daughter loves it too. I’ve recently just gotten fed up enough to leave my 60hr/ wk job that requires me to still take work home and have no time with her. My support system is pretty strong and I’ve started applying. Do you have any suggestions on which airlines are better for moms or absolute things that mothers should know before considering?
