Baby's Day Out
Posted by Krishann Briscoe
I remember the first time I said goodbye to Lola. I was only leaving for a few hours and yet I felt like I was preparing for a voyage. For months it felt impossible for me to leave her side. Even a trip to Wendy’s to get a frosty felt wrong and if you know me you know I love dessert. That particular evening I talked about her constantly. I texted my mom asking about her, and I pined over photos of her. Sure I knew I would be coming home and even though she was only a few months old, I desperately hoped that deep down inside she knew I was coming home too.

It’s not something that most parents think of fondly, or anticipate with much excitement. Traveling with babies and toddlers for long stretches in a car that is. Sleeping in a different environment without all of the conveniences of home – including a baby-proofed zone. Some shudder deeply at such notions.
As the partner to a musician who tours quite a bit – we decided that we would always try to travel together, when time/work permitted. Of course it has been challenging, although being together as a family more often than not is totally worth it.
While the main theme throughout preparing oneself for more success and less melt-downs is obviously organization; making lists and not leaving packing till the last minute – there are a few key points that I’ve learned along the way. Perhaps those of you who are more adventurous or are perhaps in a similar family dynamic will find these 8 tips helpful!

In our house, Library Day is the best day of the month. My older daughters stuff our library tote with as many books as their arms can carry, with the overflow spilling out into the stroller’s basket. Baby Z is also a huge fan of our local libraries. She’s free to explore the aisles and reading rooms, while I follow close behind. Though she’s far from reading, she delights in all the books that surround her. Different colors, shapes, sizes, and weights of books to carry and chew. Thank goodness for those wipeable book covers!
Our local library has a lovely children’s section that is baby-friendly. Board books, wooden puzzles, and itty-bitty chairs are available for the little bookworms. Definitely one of our favorite places to visit since it has something for everyone. I can leaf through a cookbook while the girls can scan thousands of potential bedtime stories. Zaynab is the happiest one of all as just about everything in the library is magical to her. Click through to follow Baby Z around our library, enjoying it just like any baby would!

Earlier this month we went on a 5 night trip up north for Spring break. The two older kids haven’t napped in years and can survive off an adjusted sleep schedule for a few days with no real repercussions, but the baby is a different story. He needs his sleep, and so do we! Read on to see how we managed to vacation with all three while preserving somewhat of a routine for baby Hayden, but making sure the older kids didn’t feel cheated out of any vacation fun.
