Many times during our two and a half week road trip from Arizona to New York and many places in-between, I asked myself the question, "What was I thinking?"
Entertaining a two year-old in a car for eight hours was much harder than I thought it would be. Especially after Mr. Brown Eyes flew back to Arizona, and I was a single mom for over a week.
I can tell you I prayed. A lot.
So how do you survive a cross-country road trip with a two year-old?
Lots of peek-a-boo,
lots and lots of trips to the park,
and praying for nap time.
I also owe much thanks to the makers of Ice Age, Monsters vs. Aliens, and Mighty Machines, as well as Quaker and their chocolate-dipped granola bars.
So once my little Brown-Eyed Boy was entertained, all I had to worry about was how to survive a cross-country road trip with morning sickness.
That proved to be harder than the two year-old.
