Flying with Kids

Ah, flying. The “luxury” mode of transportation we love to hate. Long security lines, ever increasing ticket prices and being uncomfortably packed in like sardines with 150 strangers.

Rear View Mirror Reflections

There are a lot of lessons that I have unexpectedly side-swiped or rear-ended in my minivan. Some of them aren’t surprising, like constantly being called “ma’am” in drive-through windows. Lesson learned: I am old. You have to be a “ma’am” to drive a minivan. Right? Sorry, men. Or “sirs.” I constantly get honked at for […]

For any parent of small children, the word “travel” is enough to make palms sweat and nerves fray. The packing, the change in routine, the laundry (and laundry, and more laundry) all seem to have us questioning our […]
