Denmark you might say but arnt you about to have a baby? Yes this is true! Im due to have a baby in two weeks time and this Saturday I shall be travelling a 16 hour journey to spend a week in Denmark! Complete craziness I know but sometimes in life you just have to have these adventures. These stories that will be told again and again.
We as a family love mission, we love serving and helping out, so when we got asked we didnt think we just said yes. There are risks certainly, big risks that could prove to be expensive or we could have an awesome week. We are going to volunteer at a Christian boarding school teaching lessons and getting a bit of the Danish culture. Pants is so excited about going to Denmark, Im a little sad (ok alot sad) that I am going to miss his first time on an airplane. On our way home my husband will fly back with the kids leaving me to endure another long car drive home at 39 weeks. I suppose I see so many firsts, I saw my children take there first steps and talking often from behind a camera to send to my husband, so he can do the same for me the other way round.
So what happens if the baby is born in Denmark? Well that's an obstacle we will have to deal with, my husband will have to fly back and drive out to come and get us, but both my other two children were a week late so hoping this little monkey stays put till after we get home!
Amazing thought the stuff we are taking one baby is enough heres a list of stuff we have to take (and the just in case stuff!)
- Ami's Car seat
- New baby car seat (just in case)
- Travel cot
- Push chair
- Hospital Bag (dont forget the notes too)
- All our luggage/ food for Ami and nappies
- Pants car seat
Just for a week we have so much! We will have a lovely time Im sure, a bit of time to spend as a family of four, a little bit of mum and dad time for the kids. I am excited but very nervous about 16 hour journey out there with a 14 month old!
Do you have any tips for long car journeys and toddlers?
