Traveling Kids

by Lisa Donovan

As I said yesterday — we are in Florida for my brother’s graduation. This means we spent seven hours in the car two days ago and will be spending another seven in it today — with two kids who are moderately good at traveling. My son could sit in a car for days, looking out the window and singing to himself. My daughter, on the other hand, not so much. She prefers to be out running around in the scenery rather than watching it go by.

Handy tool: portable DVD players. I never thought I would be advocating this but, it was a lifesaver on the trip down here and we are, as we begin our departure today, in a much more relaxed state of mind because we know we have it on our side. Once all the books have been read, all the animals have been covered in Old MacDonald, and you have counted to three thousand and twelve in “This Old Man“, you will be so glad that you have one of these babies to whip out. We bought an old Superman cartoon DVD at Cracker Barrel and have swiped a few kid movies from my parents for the ride back. They are inexpensive these days — I think my parents got this one for well under $80, and it is good quality.

Check it out. It will make your next long distance drive with kids so much happier.
