The Car Sick Carnival

14 Oct

I’ve been blogging for a few months now, and I’ve decided to hold my first carnival, delightfully titled ‘The Car Sick Carnival’. 

We all know that the best travel stories are not those involving magical sunsets and large cocktails.  A holiday that went disastrously wrong, particularly if there are vomiting children involved, makes for a much funnier tale.

We’ve all had hideous journeys with screaming babies, so if you’ve ever blogged about it, then send it to me and we can laugh about it together.  Leave a comment at the bottom of this post with a link to your story by the end of  Tuesday 20th October and the Carnival will go live on Wednesday 21st October.

I look forward to wallowing in your misery!

      Talking about bodily fluids is a parenting right of passage. Thanks!

    Ok, well you know it’s not a strictly ‘sick’ post, but it definitely involves bodily fluids and the like…

    I don’t actually have any specific stories but our whole family suffers from motion sickness. Meaning that the car basically smells of a mixture of vomit and disinfectant on a year round basis.

      If you can cobble that into a post, you’ve got yourself an entry!

    Mine’s got no puke or poo. Just a short one in which I lost my marbles back in August:

    My children vomit a lot – like a lot a lot – but surprisingly not that often in the car.

    Still, I’ve published a recent (vomit-free) car adventure today, which I would love to be part of your Car Sick Carnival.
