Just because in your mind you might think you produced this wonderful perfect child. When my child was that age we never went out for dinner, nor to movies or anywhere else with our child because we knew it was wrong to subject other people to our childs screaming and yelling that most 2yr olds do.
We stayed HOME instead.

Tough luck its the parents terrible twos that caused the problem. What if the kid started in and went on for over an hour during the flight? Why subject others to your brat? If you cant control the kid then don't fly until you can.
There is nothing worse than being stuck on a plane with kids that cant be controlled by their parents.
I wish this happened more often. (Not the crying and screaming). I have had a few flights where everyone on board was subjected to obnoxious parents and their screaming brats.

Good plan.
I take it the man on the mobile is the twins father !
