    In Canada, toddlers have the run of the plane and no one bitches.

    Flight attendants even help breast feed the youngers ones -- even the male flight attendants.

    Why can't America make this work, too?

    A semi-related rant:

    It horrifies me that children under 3 are allowed to fly on laps. You wouldn't dream of doing this in a car, why would you do it in a plane? You have the big adults all strapped in, no tray tables, seats all upright and safe....and you have a 25 pound child who either a) becomes an unguided missile when the plane hits unexpected turbulence, or b) acts as a tiny human airbag for the adult when the plane lands too hard and the adult lurches forward at 200 mph.

    Makes me nuts.

    JR and I in complete and total agreement on this. As a matter of fact, I would love to see the affects of a Tasar on an obnoxious three year old. It would be something like the scene from A League of Their Own when Tom Hanks brained the obnoxious 8 year old with a glove.

    Surely this child saw that ESPN was showing Junction Boys again.

    My daughter doesn't like to get in her carseat sometimes. She doesn't like to get out when she's in the swings at the park. She also can be a pain to change sometimes.

    You know what? I don't care. I first try to reason with her and if that doesn't work, I'm bigger and stronger. End of story.
