I composed a very helpful entry with much witty repartee which was lost on the world wide web as soon as I hit “publish”, so for this one? I’ll just stick to the facts, ma’ams.

Two things that work for us in our mini-van:

*Exhibit A:

This is a terrific book for keeping the young ones entertained on the long drives to Gramma and Grampas. Even has a pinball game on the back! Seriously!

*Exhibit B:

We have an older model Dodge Caravan sans any cupholders where the sliding doors are. So we just use our handy dandy cup holders.

Additionally, when we travel, it is inevitable that one of the kids has to use the bathroom and if it’s not my son (we just pull over anywhere for him – with boys you can do that, you know), then we have to stop and find one. As a young girl, I was taught the practical way to do it was to “hover”. My girls are not quite as adroit as I was at practicing the craft, so I bring along those little portable toilet seat covers. I buy them at the Mart that Sam built for about 98 cents…works for us.

So head on over to Shannon’s for more WFMW Car Tips!

    We have that book, and it is well used. I even mentioned it on my blog, but I do have a thing about Klutz books, I’ve yet to find one I don’t like. And I love those slidy puzzles like the one on the front cover.
