We parents spend much of our lives in the car. We run errands. We take kids to school, to soccer, to piano, to swim lessons, to play dates, to baseball, to orthodontist appointments, and on. And on.
What do you do when you're speeding down the highway and your toddler throws up in his car seat?
When you're a freewheeling single and the car breaks down on the thoroughfare, you're about to embark on an adventure (but that's another website). When you've got a car full of 4-year-olds, you're about to encounter deep doo-doo. There's nothing the least bit adventurous about it.
Instead, it's time to shift into crisis-management mode. If you're prepared for all these situations, you and the carload of kids with you will be moving again in no time.
