#Microblog Mondays: On the road

She is the daughter of this vagabond family, alright. At last count, we've called five countries in the last six years home-or-something-like-it. And in her 4.5 months of age, Girl Wonder already has six seven countries under her belt, courtesy of a west-to-east trans-continental road trip that's been part of planning our future whereabouts.

She took it all in her stride, intrepid barricade stormer that she is. (And was kept in happy company by a much beloved toy gifted to commemorate her Year of the Horse arrival. She loves that horse, but when we realized its magical, mood-changing qualities, stopping tears in their tracks, we loved it more).

Thousands of miles by car with an infant. Crazy, you say? Yeah, that's just how we roll.

  10. Adorable photo. And in my experience of observing others, those who think they can travel with their children do so successful, and those who think they can't, don't. Good for you.

  13. So jealous! Owen hates the car. Every time we consider a road trip we remember...oh yeah, no way in hell. He does good on airplanes, but anything that requires him to stay in his carseat for more than 20 minutes...that equals all out screaming tantrum. Sigh.
