Field Trip Friday: Traveling with Kids

As our daughter approaches her third birthday, we prepare to take our first long road trip as a family. The furthest we have gone is a couple of hours and even that was more than a year ago. Needless to say, I am packing everything and the kitchen sink. But no matter how much I bring there, will always be those things that never occurred to me that we would need.

A few things I will be sure to remember:

1. Earplugs - When the wailing starts in the back seat, even loud music won't drown it out.

2. Benadryl - Sometimes they just need a little nudge in the direction of a nap.

3. Cupcakes - Normally, we're pretty stingy with the sweets, but I'm thinking a couple dozen cupcakes might keep her occupied for at least an hour or two.

4. Liquor - Not for the ride, OF COURSE, but for when we arrive. I have a feeling we'll need a little extra relaxation.

5. A Nanny - Nothing says smooth vacation like bringing along paid child care.

Obviously, these are all in jest, but seriously, what are your tips for traveling with kids? (Please link up directly to your post.)
