Five Question Friday – February 18

by Carrie with Children with 16 comments
Yay for Friday!  Did this week fly by for you?  It went by really fast for me…and I’m not even sure why, it was a pretty quiet week around here!  I’m excited for tomorrow – it’s supposed to be 75 degrees tomorrow (Yay Florida weather!).  We are taking the girls to the farmer’s market and I’m hoping we can get some great fruits and veggies!  What are your plans for the weekend?

Just a reminder, I’m linking up with others for Five Question Friday and I don’t make up the questions. Click on the button below to see a linky list of others also participating. Be sure and share your answers below too!

Have you worn the same outfit more than one day in a row? I think anyone that has flown on an airplane and lost their luggage has probably worn the same outfit more than one day in a row!  When I traveled overseas in 2006, I was traveling for almost a total of 24 hours.  I was so glad to see my luggage…I just wanted new clothes!

If you had to choose any LARGE city to live in, which would it be? Is Nashville considered a large city?  If so, that’s my no-brainer answer.  I sound like a broken record, but I love everything about Nashville.  Such a cool city (except for their NFL team!)  Besides…if I lived in Nashville..maybe Busy Mom and I could be BFFs.  She rocks.

Fly or drive with the kids on vacation? For now…the only vacations we go on involve driving.  Nothing against parents that do it, but I cannot imagine traveling on a plane with an infant and a toddler.  I’m just not that brave.  Besides, most of the places we would want/need to go are within driving distance of our home.  I wouldn’t even begin to know how to pack for a plane trip with two little ones involved!

What is your idea of “spring cleaning”? Hiring someone else to do it!  Haha!  Does anyone actually like to clean?!

What is the best book you have ever read? To Kill A Mockingbird.  It’s probably one of the best written books of all time.  I could read it over and over and love it just as much.  (In fact, I have many times.)

    I have an infant and a toddler as well and can’t imagine flying with them. Maybe when we don’t have to carry around 2 carseats and heap of other stuff. I see parents doing it all the time in airports and just think about how miserable I would be lugging that stuff around…CAR TRIPS all the way for this family of 4!

    • Carrie with Children

      Edi – You and I think alike! How old are your little ones? Car trips are the only way for our family of four too! Lugging around one carseat is tough enough – I can’t imagine two!

        My girls are 2 and 10 months. They are 15 months apart. Yours are TOO precious!

        • Carrie with Children

          Thank you so much! Our girls aren’t too far apart in age! My Maggie is 28mos and baby Molly is 8mos! Running over to your site now!

    This is one of the main things holding us back from having #2 right now – What on earth would I do when my hubs deploys. Now I spend the time visiting family in the midwest – not exactly sure how that would work with 2…

    If you find someone who likes cleaning – could you send them my way?

    • Carrie with Children

      Yep two is a LOT of work! You’d have your hands full when hubs is away!

      I’ll let you know if I find anyone good at cleaning. Wow I’m terrible at it.

    There is no way I would fly with a toddler and an infant. Or even a toddler. Luckily Heath doesn’t like flying so we drive everywhere–even 16 hours to Disney! 😉

    I think I’d love to live in Chicago. But maybe I’d rather live in a city that is WARM!

    • Carrie with Children

      You guys are amazing driving 16 hours to Disney! 🙂 You’ll be driving in style this trip too – woohoo!

      I’ve never been to Chicago! I’ve heard it’s a neat place, but too cold for me!

  • Ashley @ Mama of All Trades

    We are totally a driving family for right now. I am on your side!!

    • Carrie with Children

      I thought you were flying to Disney next month?! Or is this a baby free trip?!

  • KellyS

    Our airplane trips with a newborn(after adopting them) was easy. Taking a 21 month old and 5 year old on a plane was a bit more of a challenge but not too bad. I don’t remember bringing car seats. We must have held the kids. I was so nervous at first but it went by so quick!
