Life on the Go:
As a mom, I know firsthand that life on the go can be a whirlwind. Whether shuttling the kids to school, running errands, or embarking on a family road trip, a well-prepared car can make all the difference. Let’s dive into the must-haves that will keep your family cruising smoothly.
Car Essentials Kit: Your Roadside Ally
Having spent five years in the trenches of motherhood, I’ve learned that preparation is the name of the game. I’ve experienced the joy of being well-prepared and the frustration of being caught off-guard. My well-guarded secret is that a well-stocked car essentials kit is a game-changer.
When I think about stocking my car, I break it down into different categories to cover all the bases. Here’s what you need:
Safety First: Ready for Anything
Safety is paramount, and these items should typically stay in your trunk. Just be mindful of items that might not fare well in extreme heat:
- First Aid Kit: You’ll be ready to handle minor accidents and injuries, from band-aids to antiseptic wipes and adhesive tape.
- Roadside Emergency Car Kit: For those pesky dead batteries or flat tires. Don’t forget a safety reflective vest in your trunk!
- Umbrella: Because you never know when you’ll need to stay dry.
- Trash Bags: Keep things tidy on the go.
Organization Made Easy: A Kid-Friendly Approach
Keeping your car tidy with kids can sometimes feel like an impossible task. Let’s face it; you’ll likely discover a treasure trove of goldfish crackers, chicken nuggets, and french fries from that vacation in 2020. Here’s how to keep things organized:
- Car Trash Can: Make trash disposal a breeze by giving it a designated spot.
- Seatback Organizer: Store toys, books, snacks, and other essentials in an easily accessible location to keep your kids occupied during those long drives.
Comfort and Convenience: Happy Kids, Happy Trips
A happy, comfortable child can transform a potentially challenging trip into a breeze:
- Travel Pillow and Blanket: Ensure your toddlers have a cozy nap during long journeys.
- Sunshades: Shield your kids from harsh sunlight, reduce glare, and keep the car cooler.
- Snack Containers: Fill them with mess-free snacks for those hunger-induced meltdowns.
- Baby Wipes: Because spills and messes are part of the adventure.
- Extra Bag: Packed with diapers, wipes, and a change of clothes – at least one outfit for each kid and a spare shirt for parents.
- New Toys: Surprise your little ones with toys they haven’t seen in a while. It’s a great distraction during car trips.
- Lectrofan Travel Sound Machine: One detail that you see over and over again in our resources is the role white noise plays in a great night’s sleep and daytime naps. Now, you can keep those great sleep habits going while traveling!
The “Uh-Ohs” of Car Trips: Be Prepared
Let’s face it: accidents happen. Be ready to tackle those “uh-oh” moments, like car sickness, spills or potty accidents:
- Babyganics All-Purpose Surface Wipes
- Babyganics Foaming Pump Hand Sanitizer
- Stain Treater Spray
- Paper Towels
- Garbage Bags
- Barf Bags, aka Emesis bags
- Disposable Changing Pads for Baby: Useful for diaper changes or to line seats if needed.
A Moms on Call Car Essentials Kit is your secret weapon for ensuring smooth, safe, and enjoyable journeys with your family. Whether it’s a quick grocery store run or an epic road adventure, you’ll be well-prepared to handle whatever comes your way. So, load up your car, hit the road, and make every trip with your kids an unforgettable adventure!
