I wish I had thought up the idea to blog about Mother Daughter Flight Attendants more than just 5 minutes ago, but such is life. A�I want to wish a Happy Mother’s Day to all of the Moms in the world.
Moms, thank you for being incredible women. A�I’m not a Mom, so I don’t know what the job entails, but I’ve had the thought quite often, that I hope that I never have a daughter like me cause that just sounds exhausting. A�Thanks for putting up with those of us that can’t sit still and make you worry.
My mother is one fun lady. A�The older that I get, the more that I see the similarities in our personalities. A�I inherited her adventurousness, klutziness, and laughability. A�One of the reasons that I love spending time with my mom is because, when I’m with her, she laughs all the time.

My mom was a dietitian, but a year into my flying career, I said, “Hey Mama! You should apply to be a flight attendant! It’s really fun!” A�So, in her typical fashion, she replied with a, “Why not?!” A�Even though my mom works for different airline than I do, it’s great to know that she just gets what it’s like to work in the industry. A�It’s also nice that her and I are able to meet in cities around the country, flying places for free. A�It’s also why my dad was able to go to Vietnam with me. A�There are so many perks to Mother/Daughter Flight Attendant-ing.

Many airlines have moms and daughters, or sons, working together. A�I know of a few, and I think it’s so cute. A�My friend Kayla grew up with Mom as a flight attendant, working for a mainline carrier. A�Kayla was able to travel with her Mom to far away places, bonding the two of them, and instilling in Kayla a desire to see the world and follow in her Mother’s career path. A�Now, both women are employed by the same airline. A�How cool is that?

I wish I had time to include more mother/daughter flight attendant stories, but my time is limited, as I have to go to work soon. A�But, thanks Mom for being a woman I respect and admire. A�Someone I trust and can tell my secrets to. A�A friend that I can laugh and cry with. A�Love you:)
(If any mother/daughter flight attendants read this post, and want to include a story in the comments, I would love that!)
