Looking for some insight on traveling for work. I have an interview tomorrow for a position I would work remotely for (we decided against relocating if I get it), but I would be expected to attend monthly staff meetings except for extenuating circumstances. The drive is 4.5 hours one way so it’s an overnight (I could possibly fly but I don’t know if it would save any overall time). I would also need to travel on additional overnights (either because of multi day conferences/events or because of the distance) probably 4 times per year.

For those of you who travel overnight monthly or more, how do your kids manage? Mine are typically fine but my husband FaceTimed me earlier because they were a hot mess (possibly somewhat because they didn’t sleep well last night). Insight and experiences greatly appreciated!
