Traveling with Kids: General Thoughts on being car sick....
I LOVE it when we play games together as a family.
I LOVE having shared experiences as a family, and I think that's what family vacations are all about.
But, while P was puking in the car and not falling asleep I thought I need some serious advice if we're hoping to get through a possible cross-country move this summer.
SO, it's time for another week long discussion about traveling with kids.
While driving home from Yosemite there is a long and windy road (and it did bring us back to our door, thank you very much). P was dozing in and out. She'd wake up and say "mom" and then kind of languish. I just figured she didn't have enough sleep until I heard the telltale burp. My head whipped around just in time to see it come up.
Now, none of my other kids have EVER been carsick! We found a spot to pull over, cleaned it up with baby wipes and put a fresh outfit on her (because I DO always carry one of those for her), gave her a few sips of water, turned on some cold air on her and on our way we went. She was fine the rest of the way.
So fine Pulling Curls Readers -- what do YOU do about carsickness? Do your kids get it, can you teach a 2 year old how to throw up in a bag? Does anything help? This road was PRETTY windy, more on the extreme edge, but I'd love to hear tips!
