Subtitle: Taming the Wild Animals
On Friday, the family and I are leaving on a road trip to my parents’ house in northwest Pennsylvania. Google Maps seems to think it will take eight hours but I’m pretty sure it will take a tad longer than that. I mean really, there’s no check box for, “recalculate to factor in two small, crazy boys,” so how can their estimate possibly be right? My mister and I have done the trip in eight hours before, but that was pre-kids. To date, the longest road trip we’ve taken with the boys took four hours. That was a year ago, though, before Big implemented his Zero Tolerance Policy for car rides. If at all possible, we’d like to prevent utter chaos and meltdown. Am I crazy to even be attempting this?? Be honest with me.
