Road tripping with 3 kids

Moms this ones for you! 

Have you ever been awakened out of sleep with the nightmare of having to go on a road trip alone with your children. Well I can attempt to put your mind at ease and give you the courage to try it after you read this. 

Let’s begin with planning your road trips map along with how many stops you are willing to take ; all dependent on how far your trip will take you. For instance a 4 hour trip should call for (notice I said should) 2 stops the most. That is if you set the rule to only do potty and snacking on the gas breaks it will eliminate the sudden emergency.. this would also mean no drinking or heavy snacking while you’re driving. 

Next, what about entertainment to keep everyone individually busy? Encourage homework that includes a subject your children are interested in along with a surprise goodie once it’s all done. 

Last and most importantly is to keep your self in great spirits while driving because as distracting as the back seat drivers can be safety is always your number one priority then keeping everyone happy comes naturally. 

First night in snack healthier and rest…

We’re sharing some of our happy road trip moments 

P.S we’re letting dad join in on the fun on day 3

Staycation favorites

Well, we survived a Presidents’ Day week with 80% staycationing (new word)!  This February has flown by so fast that we couldn’t clearly plan a family vacation, so we decided to stay local to work a bit and have fun while doing so. 

V & K enjoyed a movie premiere screening of Rock Dog; a must see movie about one of our favorite things MUSIC, and life of  an artist. If it’s exposure to freedom of art, creation and a reason to think outside of the box we’re in! 

If you haven’t been to the toy fair at NYC Javits Center yet you must check it out! There are so many ideas for learning, gifts and teaching lessons on encouraging entrepreneurship to children with one visit. It usually runs during the February season of NY Fashion.  The girls enjoyed some goodies and decided to coordinate a full video on them. So much fun!
