If you've ever traveled with a toddler you know it's no easy feat, especially when that toddler decides to have a total melt-down and you're pregnant and traveling alone. Well for one traveler, this nightmare scenario was made a little sweeter when a group of 7 women, all of whom were total strangers, decided to band together and help a mother in need.

In a Facebook post, shared by Beth Bornstein Dunnington, she stated that the toddler looked about 18 months or so and he was having a complete melt-down, crying, kicking, screaming, tears -- and soon enough his mom was in tears too and they were both sitting on the floor crying in the terminal. Dunningston said:

"I sang 'The Itsy Bitsy Spider' to the little boy... one woman had an orange that she peeled, one woman had a little toy in her bag that she let the toddler play with, another woman gave the mom a bottle of water. Someone else helped the mom get the kid's sippy cup out of her bag and give it to him. It was so gorgeous," Dunnington reflected.

These women banded together because they knew exactly what this mom needed, some help from her sisters. When it was time to board she got on the plane and the other women went to their gates as well, because that is what women do, we get things done.

Dunnington concluded her post saying, "It occurred to me that a circle of women, with a mission, can save the world. I will never forget that moment."

Let's also note, all of the people who stepped in were women, so not that anyone was doubting her, but Beyonce was completely right when she said, "Who Run the World? Girls."
