A few weeks ago my husband asked for personal time off from work. We planned a great family day at the beach (almost 2 hours away). We were all excited to go to the beach as a family. My husband was especially happy because he would be able to watch Kendall explore the beach for (her 2nd time) the first time. We packed the 2014 Kia Sorento the night before and we were ready!
Before we left both my husband and 8-year-old took their Dramamine. He took Dramamine Less Drowsy and M took Dramamine For Kids. After driving about 3/4 of the way to our destination We get a call that my mother-in-law slipped at work and completely shattered her wrist. Back home we had to go and our day was officially over. The girls were completely devastated but I knew we’d make it up to them.
My mother-in-law is home, surgery went well and she is still learning to use her wrist again. My girls got their make up day and they were very happy!
Again, my husband and daughter took their Dramamine before we left. It’s recommended that it is taken at least a hour before you leave. As I said in my previous post I had no idea my daughter actually had motion sickness prior to learning so much about it. My husband would mention that he thinks she has it but his symptoms are slightly different so he wasn’t sure either. Since our first trip and this 2nd trip I am happy that we can actually say she DOES have motion sickness. Why am I celebrating? Well because now we have Dramamine and we can stop her symptoms before they even begin. Now she doesn’t have to suffer along instead she can enjoy the trips we go on.
Our long car ride was wonderful for everyone and it’s all thanks to Dramamine.
At the end of our trip they definitely took their medication again and we said goodbye to the beautiful white sands and blue ocean. Until next time. And thankfully there will be a next time since both my husband and daughter can make long car rides now!
