This week, our family of six will embark on a 17 hour road trip. The planning and preparation almost make me crave the hours of highway nothingness, but I know far too well that “peace and quiet” isn’t a realistic expectation in our full minivan. But we sometimes forget, don’t we?
Remind me again why I would choose to move with a baby? Oh yeah. I’m crazy. Well, hopefully my lessons learned can make your move seamless and as pleasant as possible.
As our 6’3”, 270 pound, 17 year old football player sauntered into the kitchen, I placed the final touches on the school lunch which he would inhale later on that day.
“Mom, I just want to thank you so much for making me lunch every day. I know it’s a pain, but it means a lot.”
