moving 3600kms with 4 kids and driving help Lock Rss

we have a 36hr plus drive a head off us please tell me how i can entertain the kids with out them fighting all the time.

my kids are 5 3 1.5 and 8 wks old
i know im in for a hell of a trip and the hubby wants to stay diving with little breaks.

any one done a big move like this???
My advise is do it by night as much as possible set the kids up with pillows and a good feed and drink. If you want to keep driving by day then do it but have big breaks otherwise you and the kids will go insane. But In saying that when we did it with 3 under 3 it took 2 days to go 1500km which isn't bad but it was tiring. we had snacks for thekids and we also stopped at McDonald playgrounds (didn't always buy something) and let the kids play changed nappies and also breastfeed the bubs which was 2 weeks at this stage.

I will be praying for you and you will do it OK.

Best thing to do so that you are not stressand fighting with partner is to sit down and map out what you are going to do each day and that way you both know.
