Traveling with Bossy Kids #culturellekids

by Notorious Spinks on 08.31.2012

Goo is bossy, already.  She knows what she wants and how she wants it.  The only good thing is that she will at least compromise, sometimes.   With me knowing how specific she is, I listen to her because she will correct me.  For instance, she informed me that she wanted to go to the beach.  Yes the beach, at three!  When I was three, I was…being three.  But not her!

Once we decided that the beach was a go, I started our planning.  When it comes to travel I have to plan every part of the trip.  In this instance,  I knew I would be traveling with a bossy kid.  My goal was to make sure she was as comfortable as possible.  Besides, auntie’s baby is spoiled and I’m glad to meet her demands.  Once we decided that Biloxi would be our destination, then the important stuff came.  Here are some of the items I knew we couldn’t leave home without:

Portable DVD – Goo loves her cartoons.  She loves Doc McStuffins, Dora and Diego.  All of these must be on hand at all times.

Cooler – Me and my girl love to eat.  Her favorite snack is grapes.  She must have grapes with everything.   I mean everything from eggs to hotdogs.  We make sure we have enough to last the duration of the trip and ice to keep everything cool.

Extra clothes & shoes – You never know when an accident will happen.  It is better to be prepared and not have to dig through other luggage to get to clothes or use hotel laundry services.  Those services can be expensive.

Hand-held Travel bag – The travel bag includes hand sanitizer and wipes, allergy meds, air freshener, antibacterial spray, potty covers, books, paper, pens, crayons and first-aid kit.

Culturelle Kids – When traveling to other regions it’s easy to catch bugs from that area.  It can come from a simple change in the foods eaten while traveling.  Culturelle Kids help keep the good bacteria in the system and keeps the digestive tract working properly.   This comes in powder and chewables and is pediatrician approved.  Goo prefers the chewables.

Besides why travel with the kids and not get a chance to enjoy it.   I love that Culturelle Kids help keep my Goo up and going.  Her safety and health are my first priorities.  The trip was fun and Goo got her trip to the beach.
