In a couple of weeks, my husband and I are driving to Texas with our three girls. It’s about a 13-hour drive, which is a lot for anyone, especially two toddlers and a baby. We’ve road-tripped before with our girls, but never for quite this long. I’m trying my best to plan ahead so we can have a smooth trip. I know it won’t be all puppy dogs and rainbows, but I think a little preparation can certainly help.

In a perfect world, my car would be pristine and anyone who found out I had two children would be SHOCKED because my car wouldn’t betray a hint.
But even without Cheerios rolling around in the backseat, it’s pretty obvious that I’m transporting little children around wherever I go.

Riding in the car is something that has taken some getting used to for my kids. We lived in the city for so long without a car that most of our time was spent taking the subway, bus, and every once in a while, a taxi.
When we moved to the suburbs and bought a car, Macks did not like it at all. Every time that we put him in the car, he would just cry. He didn’t like being confined at all. While most babies are calm and usually fall asleep as soon as they get in the car, Macks would do the exact opposite.
His dislike for the car made it even more nerve-wracking for me when we decided to take a road trip this summer from our home in Connecticut to our family’s home in Kentucky. A 12-hour car ride (which is more like 15 hours with three kids) was definitely going to be a learning experience for both me and Macks. We made it to our destination with just a few hiccups, but there was definitely a lot that I learned along the way.

My husband sometimes makes fun of me for having so many strollers packed away in our garage.
But with four children six and under, strollers are an important part of my life–and along every walk of life, there’s a different kind of stroller to push.
