My DH & I decided we are going to take the kids on a mini vaca but our desination is 8 hrs away. We made this same trip when our DD was 11 mos old and the car ride was MISERABLE. I ended up doing the illegal & unsafe thing of taking her out of her car seat (mini van) and holding her in my lap. I did not like doing this but she would scream until she lost her breath (for longer than I could handle) and I don't want to do this with my DS. Yes he will have his big sister (now 5) to entertain him a little but even when we make the 20 minute trip to walmart, he is screaming all the way back home. I even moved my DD to the very back row and sit next to my DS myself and this still does not seem to comfort him most times. I plan on bringing snacks and movies and books and toys...but I know it will still not be enough. I'm needing entertainment suggestions as well as comforting suggestions. Thanks everyone in advance!!
