We’re about to start getting the kids into the car. I had to swap our Yaris hatchback for my mom’s SUV, and let me tell you, that SUV is full. It looks like we’re leaving for a week. To be fair, the trunk is half full with our bedding and the backseat is full of musical instruments that we don’t have to bring, but I just don’t get that may opportunities to haul out my djembe, so in it went. Still, there are diapers and an infant pool float and a small wagon (in lieu of a stroller) and God knows what else.
I don’t believe in portable DVD players for cars. We’re going to talk and perhaps listen to music. And then we’ll be in the warm, buggy, woodsy countryside and I’ll be able to release the kids into the wild. I can’t wait!
