7 simple tips for travelling with children


We just returned from a looooong drive with 4 children. Before we had children, we could make this drive in about 10 hours, and that 10 hours could occur in one day. Now that we have 4 incredibly loud and cabin-fever-hysteric children with the smallest bladders on the planet, the same drive now takes us about 13 hours spread over at least 2 days (sometimes 3).
