The family car

Cleaning and Organizing Tips

We parents spend much of our lives in the car. We run errands. We take kids to school, soccer, piano lessons, swim lessons, play dates, baseball, orthodontist appointments, and on. 

I know the world's supposedly a smaller place these days. But I'm still driving 20 minutes to get anywhere. All this time on the road means that the family car has to function as a home on wheels. 

When you're a freewheeling single and the car breaks down on the thoroughfare, you're about to embark on an adventure.

When you've got a minivan-load 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 will be moving again in no time.
