  1. I would add “pack surprises”. I only have one child, but he isn’t very patient. I’ve found that taking a few items he doesn’t know about can turn around those “edgy” moments when he starts getting cranky. It doesn’t have to be anything really big, for my son the last surprise was a 4-color pen and small notebook.

  2. I used to leave at night when we’d go through several states to see my mom & grandparents and my objective was more to get to the mountains in the dark (when I was younger I was scared to drive in them, and thought it was better if I couldn’t see them, lol), but you’re right, it worked out great for the kids! They slept most of the way and it made the trip a lot easier on EVERYONE!

    This is a great list. Tweeting it for you.
