Crazy — Are We There Yet?

Recently I was trying to come up with a title for an article I was writing. The subject was one I frequently write about — having fun while traveling with your kids. There are those people who cannot imagine “fun” being any part of traveling with children. I feel sorry for those poor souls. They don’t know what they’re missing. Laughter is honestly the best medicine, and most parents do expect a little reasonable chaos of some kind on these adventures. The key is to embrace it!

I bounced a few ideas off a friend, and we joked about possible titles that might catch the attention of someone who might be driving down the road to crazy. Here’s a list of rejected titles:

  • Traveling With Children and Keeping Your Sanity
  • Dragging Children Through Airports and Across the Country
  • Family Road Trippin’
  • Traveling With Kids and Not Wanting to Kill Yourself
  • Hit the Road, Not Your Kids
  • Hitting the Road without Hitting Your Kids
  • Hitting the road, and not the bottle, …..with your family
  • Where are we going? Crazy, and your kids are driving.
  • Are We There Yet? That Depends, Are We Going Crazy?
  • Traveling With Children, or Why Grandma Drinks Wild Turkey
  • Tripping with your kids without heavy drugs
  • There’s no crying on vacation!

In the end, an acceptable title was chosen for the piece instead. There are many moms though, my grandmother and my own mother included, who could still get some good mileage out of these rejections, at least as far as a good laugh can take them. Your mileage may vary.

I liked this!!! I’m about to take my minivan and my 5 kids on a cross country roadtrip from Utah to West Virginia with several stops along the way. I’ve used your website for some of the printables. This post made me laugh — I’m nervous and anxious all at the same time. My kids are 9, 8, 5, 3 and 1 First three being girls and the last two are boys. Hope that I can have a good trip with all your helpful advice and tips.

[...] I don’t sweat any of it though. Payback will come someday when they’ll be driving, and I’ll be in the backseat with THEIR kids, inspired to write all kinds of stories titled, “Traveling with Kids, or Why Grandma Drinks Wild Turkey“. [...]
