Are you headed out on the road this holiday season? #kiaholiday We will do some traveling but not as much as in years past. We feel as though we have started to master the routine of traveling with three kids (and sometimes one dog!) Of course there are the potty breaks but even before you think about that, you need to make sure that everyone can get out of the car quickly. Packing items under kids feet seems like a great idea until they step on grandma’s present! oops!
Drinks and snacks are also key. The kids all have cup holders in their car seats … thankfully. But even at that, we end up using all built in cup holders too so the kids have back up drinks they can reach! I have learn your can NEVER have enough cup holders. Never. The snacks are tucked into the car seat pockets or if they are lucky I will chuck a snack back to them (here is where I should mention that aim is horrible so I really try to avoid this task!)
Entertainment is the next factor we have to keep in mind that anything beyond a one hour car drive needs to have entertainment. We seem to be passed the days of where a DVD made everyone happy. Now Grace wants to watch where we are driving or endlessly talk about gosh know what. Sophie and Matthew prefer to fight over what movie is playing and who is touching who at that moment. Oh the joys of three kids in one vehicle … I think they need ear phones … or maybe I need ear plugs!
