We live in Wyoming, but will be moving to Oklahoma in a couple months. Right now everything is in an upheaval. We will be living at my parents' for the couple months until we move to OK. I was just wondering how to help my 2 year old deal with the changes in homes? Also if anyone has any advice for keeping a 2 year old occupied on a 900 mile car ride it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

i recently just moved only about 20minutes away but prior to that our family went from living on our own mommy daddy n daughter(22months) to living with my parents then to my grandparents house now we are on our own again the moving around does affect the little one but i did do everything in my power to keep somethings the same like bedtime routines sit down meals bath time and with having these rituals pretty much set in stone my daughter seems to b adjusting well she loves the new place exploring everything and has her own room wich she adores so i guess what im getting at is the best advice i can offer is with all the chaos going on try to keep somethings the same stick to your routine it seems to be working quite well so. And as for keeping the 2yr old occupied on that extended car ride take along healthy snacks n play games like peek a boo n can u find any trucks or cars or animals for that matter i know my daughter gets antsy on short car rides and that what we do hope my suggestions are at least helpful lots of luck with the move and toddlers adjust pretty well so i think u will have success
