The Always Interesting Radical Mom

Radical Catholic Mom posts a lot of short commentaries on her blog from Alaska. She usually gives an unusual twist to her stories because of her background as a former Catholic volunteer in Costa Rica, and as a language instructor to Muslim students from the Balkans, West Africa, Nigeria, and Malasia. In particular, she has many pieces of good advice for other young mothers--such as traveling with babies.

Personally, I've determined that babies between the ages of about 8 and 18 months never travel well during the day, so my advice is:
  1. Travel in the evening when they sleep
  2. Leave them with Grandma and Grandpa while you travel (but don't stay away too long!)
  3. Don't take a trip until the baby gets older.
BTW, the psychologists say (according to Dr. James Dobson) that the only time in a child's life that you can increase his/her intelligence is between the ages of 8 and 18 months!
