If you’ve heard parents complain that they need a vacation to recover from their family vacation, there’s good reason; you miraculously pack everything in the house into four suitcases, practically shove your kids out of the hotel each morning so you don’t miss all the ah-may-zing attractions you’ve booked, and despite all your efforts, still have to bribe your kids with fidget spinners just to get them to smile in your photos.

Oh, and don’t forget about the 867 loads of laundry you have to do when you get home!

It’s all worth it for the memories, but it’s also…A LOT.

One of the most stressful parts of traveling with kids is just getting there and back. Will we make our connecting flight? Will our luggage also make the connecting flight? Will I have to buy everyone on the plane a round of drinks to make up for the fact that my kid started melting down six seconds after take-off?

Well, you won’t have to do that if you’re the mom of the kid in the video below. Two-year-old Guy has found one way to ensure everyone forgives him if he flips out mid-flight, and it’s adorable. Who needs to give those “sorry in advance for the freak-out you’re about to endure” treat bags to fellow travelers, when your kid can just fist bump his way into their hearts?
