Befouled by Puke from a Barf Bag Hand Puppet

Travel Tips for Tots from the blog, Mother-eff’d, is a filmed story from writer and comedian Johanna Stein. In the video, Stein describes an icky incident that occurred on an airplane while she tried to distract her screaming child with a hand puppet fashioned out of an air sickness bag.

A written narrative about the ordeal is posted on another blog that Stein runs (it was also published in the New York Times); read it by clicking on this link:  How to Survive a Mid-Air Disaster.

Flights From Hell offers many tales about the travails of traveling with tots; click on the following link to check them out:  Baby & Kid Stories.

As a mom of a three year old I can sympathize with Ms. Stein's plight. I never thought of using barf bags as puppets, and after reading her story I'm glad I didn't. She has a great sense of humor. I wouldn't be surprised to see her on Leno or Letterman's shows.

If you liked Travel Tips for Tots, then you'll probably enjoy Johanna Stein's other stories on her blog. Her story, Oh You Shouldn't Have, which involves a couple of practical jokes from hell, is outrageously funny in a dark and twisted way.

Hi Johanna! I didn't realize that the video was no longer accessible. I updated the embed code so it can now be viewed.
