I am a mother of two and avid family traveler. I have a website and blog called 'pint size pilot' that includes helpful tips, packing lists, a vacation babysitter and baby gear directory, product suggestions and other resources allowing parents to not only survive, but actually enjoy travel with kids.

I created the website for those parents out there who feel that their days of traveling to far off exotic places should not end simply because they now have a mini me in tow. I call out to this nomadic tribe who do not subscribe to the idea that the next ten years of travel should involve only theme parks and diners.

After logging 50 flights over 6 years with two little ones, I found that there were so many small things a parent could do to make travel easier. I have seen a mother collapse in a fit of tears, another stop speaking to her husband half way through the flight and threaten divorce by the end, a parent suggest that they would like to "punch their neighbor in the chops" before the flight left the ground, and another who just self medicated with lots of wine. While I have nothing against wine, as for the other scenarios, well, in most cases they can be avoided. It is my goal to provide you with the resources in the form of advice, helpful links, and products that allow you to have it all, without having a nervous breakdown.
