I'm planning to drive at least 14 hours in the car alone with a 15 month old.
At least I get to stop halfway and spend some time with the family in Ohio.
But have I mentioned that I'm planning to drive TWO seven hour days with a 15 month old?
I'm a little nervous.
She's at the stage where if she doesn't get exactly what she wants, when she wants it, she throws a fit. Oh wait, you call that the terrible two's? I'm so glad that my baby is an overachiever and started that phase the second she catapulted into her second year of life.
Anyway, back to my fears.
I considered flying. I really did. With gas prices the way they are, it would probably make fiscal sense to fly instead of drive, but I really could not justify the pain and agony AJ would cause
I'd rather drive.
At least then I'm the only one who wants to
Plus I have no problem turning the radio up to drown out the screeching from the backseat. We also have a DVD player for the car, so I'm planning to get a few kiddie DVD's to attempt to entertain her.
I'm not a stranger to long drives with baby, but AJ's at the age where if she's awake, she wants to be active, and I'm doing this trip alone, so I just want to be prepared.
Other than that, if any of you have any advice for me, it will be greatly appreciated!
