The girls (i love that) and I recently returned from our first annual Spring Break Road Trip. Some of you commented that I was brave and I'm sure others of you had words like "crazy" and "insane" float through your head. I am not brave and you know what's crazier and more insane than the road trip?
Sitting in a small concrete house in the middle of Florida day after day and week after week. So away we went!
Here are 5 things I learned on the trip.
1. Embrace the pit stop. I only wanted to stop once during the trip making it a 7 hour drive (pit stop included). The pit stop should be thorough and it should include food, the stretching of legs, a potty break for me (stand right here! don't touch anything! no, that's yucky!), diaper changes, the feeding of the baby and filling the car up with gas. If done correctly, this could take 45 minutes to 1 hour. The tired lady wearing the baby and directing the lady bug jammie wearing toddler in the McDonalds somewhere in Georgia? That was me. Fast is slow and slow is fast.
4. Sleep in separate rooms, if possible. This should really be at the top of the list because SLEEPING IS THE BEST. The three of us slept in three different rooms and both of the girls slept more than me (We're talking 9 to 12 hours). I'm
relieved thankful to report that we didn't have any meltdowns in 9 days on the road.
