The females of my family share a dark secret. When we travel by car we really do travel very well. We can do hundreds of kilometers in a day. Not always a good things to do with kids – having them cooped up in a car for a long time.
The problem occurs if we have to do this too many times, too many days in a row. It gets to a point and we all go crazy. A dark shadow casts itself over our car. We each begin growing an extra head and … well I might be exaggerating just a little but a phenomenon does overcome us and we call this affliction ‘Çar Crazy’ (a mobile version of cabin fever).
All of a sudden the stupidest things become hilariously funny – ridiculously funny even. Everyone suddenly turns into a stand up comedian (albeit sitting down).
What do we do when this happens ?
We dance !
Why not try it? When the kids are tired of being cooped up in the car (and parents are tired of being cooped up with them) why not stop, turn the stereo up and dance.
Let the kids entertain you with a competition on who has the wackiest dance moves or choose a private location and join in with a waltz or bust a move old-school.
Everyone will get back into the car in a much better mood, revived and after a while the kids might even go to sleep.
GO ON I DARE YOU – DANCE LIKE NO ONE IS WATCHING 😀
