Moms! Do you plan to hit the road this holiday season? If you do, and your kids are still little, I have some strong advice for you.
My husband, kids and I are going to Philadelphia this year. We’re flying. We drove once. We will never do it again.
Thanks to that road trip, I can now say that I’ve cleaned vomit out of a car seat by a dumpster behind a restaurant. I have also seen poop in more places than I care to mention.
So, moms and dads, I want to share with you something that my husband and I learned the hard way.
If your road trip is more than two hours long, book a flight. I don’t care what it costs. Book a flight, buy some Dramamine for the kids, and download every movie that they’ve ever even remotely shown interest in on your phone. If you don’t have a phone, buy one.
It sounds expensive, but you can’t put a price on your sanity, especially around the holidays.

- I’m a gross freak, you are too, and we shouldn’t be ashamed
