Most parenting experts say that routine is incredibly important for young children. When we're at home, I have to agree, but when we're traveling I'm always surprised at how much the kids delight in the deviations.

In this picture, I'm changing E into his PJs after dinner so that he'll know he should fall asleep in the car. Does he look upset to be taken out of his normal routine? Mad that he's naked outside an (excellent) korean restaurant in a random city? Of course not - putting on Pajamas in a parking lot is the funniest thing he's done all day.

    TOO funny, Debbie. What a lovely, easy-going child you have!

    That's a great photo! I love the expression on his face, and yours too. And what a clever idea - much better than trying to change them into pyjamas after they're already asleep.

    Sooo cute! I remember many a car trip in my jammies... and I bet I was changed in many parking lots, too.

    Happy Valentine's Day! :)
