This week Stasha asked us to take our show on the road. Between weekend trips, vacations, and moving – we’ve been on the road a lot. Here’s what we’ve learned.
On The Road With Twinisms
10. No matter how you configure the big kids/little kids or seat belts/car seats, someone will always be crying over getting hit, poked, hair pulled, or looked at in the wrong way.
9. Driving from Texas to Georgia while 20 weeks pregnant with twins is quite possibly the worst idea ever. Ever.
8. When you walk into an airport with two 13-year-olds, two 3-year-olds in strollers, 10 pieces of luggage, 8 carry-ons, and one dog – everyone will say a silent prayer that you are not on their flight.
7. No matter how early you arrive at the airport, when you travel with the above-mentioned crew you will wind up running to your gate minutes before takeoff.
6. If the van smells rotten, check the stow-and-go area for curdled milk.
5. When purchasing a new minivan, get the built-in TV screens. You can talk all you want about kids needing to entertain themselves without the help of electronics, but on the first long ride – you’ll regret it.
4. Never leave crayons on fabric seats in the sun.
3. If your butt keeps getting hot, keep an eye on your husband. He might be turning the seat warmer on (in July) and then turning it off when he sees you shifting in the chair. Try to figure it out before you’ve been on the road for eight hours.
2. Don’t kid yourself into making a ‘no food in the car’ rule.
1. It’s not a family vacation unless someone is projectile vomiting!
