Parents with young kids need to read this.

This is what parenting looks like. If you two are out there, reading this, I want you to know that you are kicking butt. Taking kids to the airport sucks so bad, and yet you are working as a team. I've been there sooo many times, in fact, I'm taking my kids out of state twice this summer, and I know that it can feel like you are loosing it. That you are failing at this whole parenting gig. But from my opinion, as a father of two, you are doing it.

As parents, I think it's good to hear that you are doing something right. And nothing can feel more wrong than taking small kids to the airport, or out to dinner, or to the mall, or to any other number of stressful parenting situations. And in that moment, when you're knee deep in a steaming hot public toddler meltdown, it can feel like you are failing. But you know what, you're not. If you are there, and you are caring for your children, you are doing exactly what you should.

So parents kicking butt at the airport in this picture, I hope you had a safe and fit-free flight. And I hope you realize how awesome of a job you are doing.
