5 Genius Tips for Traveling with your Toddler

So it’s been like, three point seven days without blogging and I’m already in withdrawal. I guess this really is like (free!) therapy for me. Who knew. Anyway, our New Zealand trip has been lovely so far, and I’ll make this short because I’D RATHER BE OUTSIDE ON THE BALCONY SIPPING WINE (which will only happen if a) my toddler wakes up from his nap happy and b) I can

And I worried waaaay less about my baby than I thought I would (thanks to
