Why Travelling with Young Kids is Hard

In 100 words or less.

An essay by Busy-Dad-E

After a 3 hour adventure getting the boys urinated, bathed, urinated, dressed, urinated, fed, urinated and loaded in the minivan (and urinated), we were ready to depart on a 400 mile road trip. We circled around to the front of the hotel (a distance of about 50 feet) to check-out. We parked, and as I unbuckled my seatbelt, Little Brother asked—in all sincerity—“are we at Papa’s?”

“Not quite, buddy,” I replied. “only another 2,111,950 feet to go.”


See you on Fatherhood Friday,
Happy Turkey Day Tomorrow,
From my 3 Turkeys to Yours,

Pee.S. A proposed new unit of measure for travelling with young kids: Gallons Per Mile
(gallons being measured in urine). Any number greater than 1 is bad.


  1. LOL! Very brave experience for two parents...glad you made it home safely. Rosi

  2. It is definitely hard. So much easier when they get a little bit older.
