Here are a few things I learned while driving five hours with my two-year-old on Thanksgiving:
**Bring plenty of toys, books, stuffed animals, and patience!
**Make sure to hit the road with full tummies!
**Sing Songs (Josie prefered the ABC song… about a thousand times!)
**Remember that adult conversation is almost impossible, unless the munchkin is sleeping!
**Let the munchkin sleep as long as possible – even if it means not stopping for gas until the gas light comes on.
**If driving in Grandma’s mini-van, expect to be traveling with interesting objects. This time it was a washer.
**Take a deep breath. Never lose your patience. Remember that it will all be over soon 🙂
