NEWARK, N.J. – Parents worried about how their 18-month-old twins would react to their first flight made a truly sweet gesture for other passengers.

The family was on its way from Newark Liberty Airport to Orlando on July 3. Uncertain of whether the twins would make a fuss during the flight, their parents handed out bags filled with chocolate and earplugs to other passengers.

The bags had a note inside:

Our names are Ashley & Abby. We’re twins, we just turned 18 months old and this is our first on an airplane! We are heading to FL to see Grandma & Grandpa, and Mommy & Daddy said something about a mouse. We’ll try to keep our cool, but in case we decide to get crazy, we’ve provided you a sweet treat and some earplugs for your enjoyment. Thank you for understanding and enjoy your flight!
