Tell us something about yourself, mommy- I’m Pauline.  First things first, I love all things, Disney! I’m also a mom of a sweet little boy, a wife to my high school sweetheart, and a Medical Insurance Biller and Coder. We live a happy life, full of adventure and travel. When we’re not too busy working, we like to spend our time eating and reviewing our way through Disneyland.

How old are you? And your kid too! I am 26 years old, and my son Maximus is 2 years old.

Which countries and places have you travelled till now? Both with and without kids. As a family, we’ve travelled to Florida to say hi to Mickey Mouse over at the Magic Kingdom.  We’ve also been to Arizona to check out the famous Grand Canyon. Coming home from AZ, we also stopped at Salvation Mountain, which is a beautiful piece of art hidden in the middle of the Colorado desert! Salvation Mountain by far has to be one our favourite travelling experiences as a whole.

Tell us something about your trip with your kids? Traveling with Maximus I would say has been a  breeze thus far ( knock on wood). I think it’s mostly because he enjoys car rides. And when flying I make sure to bring his favourite set of toys, and snacks to keep him busy along the way.

 

 

When did you start travelling with kids? We started travelling with Maximus when he was about 4 months old, and that was a fun trip to San Diego to visit Shamu at SeaWorld.

Can you tell us 2 destinations that you would recommend other fellow mums to travel? I would recommend visiting Anaheim California, just because it’s home to The Happiest Place On Earth, Disneyland, and it’s every kid’s dream place to visit.  Including my sons.  Disney has rides for almost everyone at any age, and at just  2 months old Maximus was on his first ride at Disneyland. As long as your baby is held securely in your lap, they can ride almost any ride at Disneyland that doesn’t have a height requirement ( which is most rides).   Also when visiting Anaheim, the beautiful beaches of Southern California are only a few miles away, and you don’t ever have to worry about the weather because it’s always so nice out.

My second recommendation would be to visit Hollywood, CA.  Where on almost any given day you could run into a famous celebrity.  And if that wasn’t cool enough, they have a wax museum full of wax figures of your favourite celebrities that you can pose with for pictures. If you are looking for thrill, excitement, and behind the scenes action of your favourite Universal Movie than you can also head over to Universal Studios which is nearby and there is something fun to do for all ages.

How do you pack for the travel? Packing is a big part when travelling, especially with a toddler, so I like to pack very light. For my son, I pack one outfit per day, and at least 2 back up outfits just in case.  A pair of shoes that will match almost anything he wears, and one sweater for the entire trip. As for myself, I’ll pack a couple of blouses for each day and either a pair of shorts and/or jeans depending on where we’re going.  That way I can just switch out my tops and pair them with either my shorts or jeans.  And same goes for my husband. If all packing goes accordingly, then all our clothes usually fit in one medium-sized suitcase, along with a small duffle bag with all our extra items such as makeup, camera, toys etc.

Dos and don’ts of travelling with kids?I have found that making a checklist always saves me from leaving the important stuff out because it is so easy to forget things when you get sidetracked with kids.

Traveling can also be stressful, so I would say DON’t forget to have fun. It’s always important to enjoy life and everyone in it.

What are the best & worst parts of travelling with kids? The best part of travelling with my son is seeing him happy, that is so important to me. The worst but funny part would have to be when we’re about to have dinner and my son decides he has to go number 2. It almost never fails, so there we go rushing to the restroom to change his diaper.

How do you manage your kid’s food items while on vacation or any crazy for incidences? I usually like to cut up fresh veggies and fruits for our long road trips, along with his favourite cheese crackers, and plenty of water, because believe it or not my son rather take water over juice any day.  7.
