Will and I are about to embark on our first trip together. We are travelling three hours south to my hometown to see Grandpa B and Grandma J. Oh, and my sister and her fiance, who is leaving to get married in Hawaii tomorrow. I also have a couple of girlfriends that want to meet Will, and some of my mom's friends are clamoring, too. I have a feeling it is going to be a busy trip.
M has to work, so I am flying solo (well, duo, with Will). I am a little nervous. I am planning to put him in the car right after he eats and right before he (usually) takes him morning nap. He doesn't usually sleep for three hours, but I am hoping that the car ride will lull him to taking a bit longer of a nap. For the most part, it is fairly populated along the drive, and it's all along a major freeway. So, if he does wake up a bit early, we can always make a pit stop.
I am bringing his travel swing and his bassinet (the top detaches from the base) which is what he is currently sleeping in (we have the top in the crib). I have packed tons of extra outfits and a whole package of diapers. My parents have raised three babies and so they will be a ton of help. There are lots of stores where I am going in case I need anything.
But I am still a bit nervous. Wish us luck!
