    Can not function w/o my gps – it tells how many miles AND MINUTES to the next stop. just break down the trip into segments. This helps with 35 yo son with autism AND my 80 yo father. His version of ‘Are we there yet?’ is ‘Green Bay is just around this bend.’ – and we are two hours from Green Bay.

    Carrie…..as a child my husband always got carsick.They went on an annual holiday every year and after an hour or so driving he would start feeling queasy.Now this was in the seventies when we all did crazy things in cars,just to put the next sentence in context…..he would be taken out of the back seat to sit on his mothers knee in the front where he would remain until they arrived at the seaside.His mother is a tiny woman…one could use many wonderful adjectives to describe my husband…..tiny is not one of them…..and he certainly wasn’t tiny aged ten,eleven,twelve….

    And did I mention that this was in August….with no air con……and leather car seats….

    I feel your pain,honest I do….I have a puker myself…..I have been known to roll my eyes and sigh loudly while she pukes….instead of soothing and cuddling her…..big,big mothering fail….but at least she is not sitting on my knee…now that’s a whole nother shade of torture!!

    I bet you are looking forward to the next roadtrip already 🙂

    My youngest son gets car sick, even now at twenty four. He also gets sea sick, we’ve had some interesting channel crossings. Two plus hours on a cross channel ferry in the ladies toilets with a small boy puking is not my idea of fun. When he got too old to go into the ladies I was relieved, Commando wasnt. Now we fly. Thankfully he doesn’t get sick on planes.

    Oh my word, totally not laughing at you, but the Gatorade bottle? I LOVED this in all of its car travel horror. The puking would put me right over the top. I feel like you deserve a gold star, or a big bottle of wine.

    Okay. That is the funniest thing I have read in a long time! Tears streaming down my face. I’m just three years late but that’s okay. Carrie, you are HiLaRiOuS!
