Well, if I thought preparing to take a baby to the doctor or mall was intense, I'm not sure what I'd call preparing to go to another state.
Or perhaps just stupid?
Today Allison embarks on her first road trip to New York because we're visiting my family for Christmas. Maybe we went a little overboard, but we have enough stuff in the car that someone could easily assume we were dropping her off at college.
On the bright side, my decision to buy an SUV a few years ago -- before I was married or even thought about children -- doesn't seem so unreasonable anymore.
Then again, maybe I should've gotten something a little bigger.
Like a bus.
