Hauling with two kids in tow is similar to hauling with one kid in tow. Except now there are two little people complaining that they are hungry. Two little people are tired and in need of a nap. Two little people not wanting to be buckled in their carseats.
I have discovered the real purpose of carseats. Carseat manufacturers may say that the purpose of a carseat is to keep your child safe while traveling in a car. This is certainly one benefit, but the true purpose is to keep your child in one place while driving! To keep them from crawling all over the seats, the controls, the steering wheel, and your lap during your road trip. All it takes is a couple minutes of hauling in the semi for me to realize just how much I love my kids’ careseats and their restraining mechanisms.
Amid the crying and whining, though, there are sweet moments like this.
I love the sleeper-area of our semi where the girls can play while the cows or hay or whatever is being loaded. The bed is the perfect place to take a nap, snuggle, change a diaper, feed a baby, read a story, feed a pre-schooler, or play with your little or big sister.
