I. am. nervous.
My husband and I are about to embark on our first road trip with little E (make that screaming E at the moment... it's bed time-need I say more?). We weren't planning on going on any trips for a couple more months, but unfortunately my husbands' grandfather passed away this morning. :( He was such a great man. I feel so bad that he didn't get a chance to meet his great-granddaughter, but I know she will be able to feel his spirit and he will always be with us in our hearts.
I hope that he will be with us for this road trip. It isn't just a few hours' drive; it's going to be about a 9 hour trek. (gulp.) I need all you professional moms out there to give me some advice as to what and how I should pack. I realize with a baby you will pretty much need everything but the kitchen sink, but I need to know what's essential, but be mindful of space- we won't have a ton in our little car.
I need advise on what will save me from a...
total mommy nightmare breakdown
With this face...?
I know right. So hard to even think about getting mad with chubby cheeks like those, but I'm familiar with Murphy's law and it's better to be prepared than to end up like this at the side of the freeway:
I will luckily have my loving brother-in-law in the back seat with her (-that is until she has a HUGE blowout... ). I've got a couple days to get things together so any helpful hints will be, well helpful.
And snacks!! (heheh-maybe I'll share) I'm not the biggest fan of fast food. Greasy doesn't do well for Miss E's tummy and being out on the road and all... just sayin'.
