Usually I create my own lists for What Do You Think Thursdays with Skinny Scoop.
Not this week.
Next month we are going on a twelve hour road trip to New Jersey and New York City to visit family and friends. Last time I we went on this trip, it did not go well. At all.
Thomas was cutting four teeth (unbeknownst to me). Marie had issues with bladder control. We were hit by a semi-truck tire that unraveled from the wheel.
I swore I would never do it again. (First rule of parenting: never say never). So here I am, two years later and willing to put the past behind me.
I’m a traveler, damn it! I’m not going to let a few teeth poking holes through gums or a urine-soaked car seat or even a near death experience of a semi tire almost crashing through my windshield while driving seventy miles per hour on I80 East get in the way of my life plan.
So I am reaching out for tips to make this trip easier. This list created by Erin, ChiefMom at Skinny Scoop has some excellent ideas. One of my favorites is that you make a little schedule of things to do and coordinate it with pit stops.
Do you have any helpful tips to make a lllooonnngg road trip bearable and even daresay, fun?
