Happy 100th post! (and a serious question for you)
Edit: It's a 6 hr drive on a good day.
So, among my millions of questions and concerns about having a new baby, is one about the holidays. We will have a one month old at Thanksgiving and a 2 month old at Christmas. We always travel for the holidays, but I'm not so sure about this year. I don't have a single clue what my life will be like at Thanksgiving or Christmas. I don't know how I will feel or how the baby will be. When I expressed my concern to my mom she made me feel like an idiot. She told me, "Kacie, you don't let them hold you back. You just pack them up and go!" And I'm thinking...yeah mom...that's easy for you to say. You've done this before! A LOT! I'm pretty stinkin' sure that I have a super valid point and that you need to be thinking about the possibility of a different plan for this coming up holiday season. I told her that I didn't want to plan anything since I have no clue where we will be at that point. (and I super-super hate not planning...like tons...it makes me a nervous wreck) I may be overreacting and I'm for sure too emotional about it, but I need advice. What should we be thinking about traveling at Thanksgiving and Christmas with a new born?
