Natalie and I are taking our very first trip back to Indy this weekend. We're going to a wedding of one of my besties from college. Unfortunately since Matt is out of town, I'll be making the drive by myself.
Five hours in a car with a 4 month old.
Not necessarily something I would choose to do by myself. At least not for her first trip.
I'm pretty nervous about how she'll do. Little Miss is so funny about the car. Sometimes she's a peach. And other times, she screams whenever I stop. Stop lights. Stop signs. Waiting to turn. Screaming! But once I start again...she's fine. I'm optimistic since this trip is 85% interstate...she'll sleep for most of the trip.
My plan is to wake her up a little early so she will (fingers crossed!) go back to sleep in the car and sleep for a few hours. Then we can stop, eat, and perhaps she'll sleep again?? Ha! That's what I'm worried about. That second leg. Hm.
So anyone traveled a long distance in the car with an infant before? Got any tips for this new mama? Can't you just hear her screaming her little lungs for hours? Oh dear. I'm making myself nervous. And I haven't even mentioned packing for a princess who spits up every hour. Eek!
Waiting is the Hardest Part
