We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us their worst traveling-with-kids horror story, and — yikes — you’ll never want to leave home again:
1.“We took a flight with my very active 2-year-old son who threw a tantrum the ENTIRE flight. It got so bad that the flight attendant asked me to step into the restroom and suggested that I stay in there until he ‘calms down.’ That was a level of hell I hadn’t quite experienced yet.”
2.“We were packing up the hotel room when our 5-year-old sneaked out and somehow got into the key-card only elevator. He managed to go down all 21 floors and was fortunately stopped by the concierge as he was about to leave the building.”
3.“We were on a road trip when my baby girl had the worst blow-out diaper ever. It stunk up the whole car. It was lunch time, so we stopped at the nearest restaurant, Waffle House. We headed straight to the bathroom where it took both me and my sister to get her cleaned up — and it involved a sink bath.”
4.“While rushing to make a 6 a.m. flight, I accidentally kneed my 3-year-old in the lip. Later, at the airport, she wouldn’t listen, and ran away from me screaming that I’d hit her on purpose. Humiliating.”
5.“When I was about 3 years old the only way to keep me from crying on a long drive was by playing The Wiggles. The only CD we had of them was a little sampler with 3 songs, so my mom had to sit though those same 3 songs on repeat for 13 HOURS! I honestly don’t know how she did it.”
8.“On a flight to Cuba, my 6-month-old threw up all over herself, me, and the entire airplane seat. I had a change of clothes for the baby, but none for me. I arrived in Cuba wearing my husband’s hoodie and no bra — and it was mid day in the blistering heat!”
9.“We let our daughter pack her own bag for her first plane ride. Later, we got stopped going through security. The TSA agent asked who her bag belonged to and who packed it. I said she did. He then opened it and started pulling out the most random collection of kid crap. Finally, he fished out a six-pack of egg-shaped chalk. Apparently it looked like a bomb on an X-ray.”
“She ended up throwing up three more times in my brand new SUV on the way back to the hotel, and felt so bad that she refused to touch the sand (let alone walk on it) the whole trip.”
