Transcript 0:00 (upbeat music) 0:06 (lip smacking) 0:08 – Hello, Jordan Page from Millennial Moms here 0:11 with my special guest. 0:12 – Hello – This is Bubba, 0:14 my handsome hubba. 0:15 We are in Hawaii. 0:19 We are in Hawaii right now 0:20 and we thought, what an appropriate time 0:22 to do a video on traveling with kids. 0:26 But first, don’t forget to 0:28 – Subscribe 0:30 – And give this video a 0:31 – Big thumbs up. 0:32 – Ding ding ding. 0:33 So we brought two of our four kids. 0:36 We brought our six year old 0:37 and our four and a half year old 0:38 and we’ve some great tips on traveling with them. 0:42 We prefer not to check bags. 0:45 Saves us about 50 bucks a person. 0:48 So we pack a carry-on for each person. 0:52 – A backpack and a carry-on. 0:53 – And we have each kid carry their own carry-on bag 0:58 so we make sure it has rolling wheels 0:59 so it’s not too hard. 1:00 And then once we get to the gate, 1:01 we ask them if we can gate check the bag, 1:04 which costs you zero. 1:07 – Because they’re carry-ons. 1:08 – Because they’re carry-ons, and then the only thing 1:10 we have to carry onto the plane is a backpack. 1:16 And inside their backpacks we have– 1:18 – All kinds of entertainment. 1:20 – Coloring, books to read, their bag of snacks. 1:24 Crayons are good. 1:26 We make sure they each have a little blanket 1:27 stuffed in their backpack. 1:29 – Whatever blanket that they always sleep with at home. 1:31 – Their little lovey. 1:32 Stickers, those are great. 1:34 Homework, be sure to ask your teachers for homework 1:36 before your trip and then they have something 1:39 to do on the plane that will alleviate their homework load 1:43 once you get home. 1:44 Headphones, so they each have their own set of headphones– 1:46 – With a splitter, if you have more than one kid. 1:48 – A splitter is worth whatever you end up 1:51 having to pay for it. 1:52 So we only need one iPad and they share it 1:54 but then they each get their own headphones 1:56 so they’re not like this. 1:57 I can’t hear it, I can’t, it’s mine, stop moving. 2:00 Just like that. 2:04 Bubba’s really good at packing snacks. 2:06 A gallon Ziploc bag per kid. 2:09 Pack their own Ziploc totally full of snacks 2:12 and make sure they’re all the same 2:14 – Then there’s no fighting. 2:15 – Then there’s no fighting. 2:16 – Fruit leathers, some kind of crackers. 2:17 Granola bars are awesome. 2:19 Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, huge. 2:21 – Apple, an apple. 2:23 – Oh, an apple. 2:24 – Oh, Bubba’s got a trick. 2:28 Don’t slice apples first. 2:31 Even if you do all the tricks, eventually they get 2:32 brown and gross. 2:33 – I rip the apple in half with my brute strength. 2:38 Each apple has their own natural seam, 2:41 and if you hold the apples like so. 2:47 – Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. 2:50 That’s my man, rip an apple in half 2:52 with his bare hands. 2:53 So hot. 2:56 Even though our kids are potty trained 2:57 and have been potty trained for years, 2:59 we always have them wear Pull Ups when we travel. 3:02 Whether in the car or on an airplane, 3:03 because, sometimes when a little guy has got to go, 3:08 and that fasten your seat belt light is on, 3:10 better to be safe than sorry, kids. 3:12 So we always pack an extra Pull Up 3:14 and an extra pair of underwear in their bag. 3:18 When they come around and do drink service, 3:20 we ask for an entire can instead of a cup 3:23 of whatever it is. 3:24 So when they say “What would you like to drink?” 3:25 We say, 3:26 – Can I get a can of apple juice, please? 3:28 – You’re much less likely to spill a can 3:31 or you can throw it in your bag 3:33 and save it for later, versus having an open cup 3:35 that your four year old will spill all over you. 3:37 – You also get a full can, 3:39 instead of just what they pour out. 3:40 – Yes. Hehehe. 3:43 And they don’t charge you for it. 3:46 Da da da da da dah! 3:48 – Neck pillows! 3:50 These are the great thing to keep your kids sleeping. 3:53 – Oh good demonstration. That’s good. That’s very good. 3:57 Bubba loves neck pillows, but he specifically loves 3:59 the memory foam ones and in the car and on the plane 4:02 they are great because then your kids aren’t like. 4:05 – Don’t break your neck. 4:06 – If your kids don’t like them around their necks, 4:08 which some of my kids do not, you can still use it 4:11 as a pillow. 4:14 That’s nice. Will you finish the video? 4:17 – Oh yeah. 4:17 – Okay.
