Hilarious Moms Explain Why You Shouldn't Travel With Kids Under 5
The mom duo acts out what it's like trying to travel with babies and toddlers and totally hits the nail on the head.
Kristin Hensley and Jen Smedley—the moms behind the hilarious and always totally on-point #IMomSoHard web series—are back with another priceless video, this one about how annoying it is to travel with young kids.
"I have a formula," explains Hensley as the clip opens. "Your youngest has to be 5 before there is an expectation of travel. So everybody just has to come to you."
Solid plan, right? If only.
"I had to change a diaper on a seat in the waiting area at the LaGuardia Airport because it was cleaner than the baby changing station," Smedley recalls. "On the actual plane, it's like a little flip-open wallet. And you put a baby up there and they immediately scream."
We have so been there, Mama! Pro tip: A few of those mini bottles of Smirnoff will help ease the pain!
But Smedley is not done with her rant. And so in order to illustrate just how ill-equipped airplane changing tables are for actually changing a diaper, she then hops up on the kitchen counter and pretends to be a baby.
"Uh-oh, I'm mad," she begins, wriggling all around as Hensley attempts to "change" her. "I don't want this to happen. I'm not into the changing."
