Mom Forgets Baby at Airport and Other Reasons Pilots Turned the Plane Around

By

A mother experienced a nightmare scenario while flying that is sure to haunt her for the rest of her life and make her the brunt of countless jokes.

Any parent will tell you that raising kids is hard, especially when you're raising more than one of them. You can't take your eyes off them for even a split second. The moment you look away to help one kid tie their shoes, the other one falls over and bumps their head.

And when you're going somewhere with your kids, you can never just put your jacket on and go someplace. You have to get them ready, plus there's all the stuff that you have to bring along anytime you go more than 10 feet away from the house.

Now I could understand when you're out with your children that you might leave beyond one of the myriad things you have to bring with you to ensure that they're taken care of: their organic cheddar duck crackers or a favorite toy or their baby wipes or a tiny pair of mittens or scarves.

But in your frenetic attempt at getting someplace on time, do you think you'd every accidentally leave the actual kid behind? That's like something straight out of Raising Arizona.
