My Top Tips for a Perfect Fall Family Road Trip!

“Travel with kids”, sometimes the very words can make a parent panic. It can be hard enough to travel with two people, but throw kids into the mix, and things get complicated. Well… that’s my life. We travel all the time with our two kids in tow. While I feel they are well-behaved kids and I love traveling with them, they inevitably complicate some parts of travel. I am always making sure they are fed, happy, and comfortable. This isn’t always easy, and I am always on the lookout for tools that can help me do the job even better and easier.

BusyKid - chores and allowance simplified with one AMAZING app!

This summer I started to get really tired of our old chore charts. We write everything down on a paper or clip board, but it never quite gets tracked like it should and I always have a kid telling me later about how they completed a chore when I don’t think they did. It was definitely time to shake things up at our house and I just knew there had to be a better way. I searched around for a better chore chart system and found BusyKid. My kids one complaint was that neither their dad or myself had cash on hand to pay for the chores they had finished. I would joke with my daughter “Do you take a credit card?” she didn’t appreciate that very much. I needed a way for their chore money to just come out of my checking account automatically without any hassle.

How many times can you hear “Are we there yet?”
