Traveling with toddlers is not exactly one of life’s super fun activities. I can think of a slew of things I’d much rather do. (Cleaning toilets anyone?!) But it’s just a part of life and if you can go into it prepared about what you might expect, then you will probably fare much better. This isn’t one of those posts about tips and tricks for traveling with toddlers, though I have written such posts before. This is a post that lays out what traveling with a toddler is really like and why all of your well-laid plans will likely be chucked out the window. Learn to accepts these truths and you just might enjoy toddler travel a tiny bit more.
