I smile when I think to my pre-kid self. I would roll my eyes at ‘those moms’ I would see in public, promising myself I would never be that kind of mom. Gosh, they looked like a hot mess! Why don’t they have their act together, and control those kids? Even if you’re the best mom in the world you find yourself saying things, repeatedly, every day that you never thought that you have to say in your life time. Some days things come out of my mouth and I question why I have to say them out loud. Let alone multiple times a day.

However, I have a few travel tips that will make this year’s travel experience a little easier for you! These will save your sanity and help you when you are in a pinch.

Today was… well, all I can say is that I survived today.
I had attempted to prepare an Instagram worthy meal. I had found a creamy mushroom chicken recipe on Pinterest the night before.
Great Grandpa take my hand, show me the way. What is our adventure today?
This photo came up on my Facebook memories today. I had to smile right away….
