Ultimate Travel Accessory: A Mom

Tuesday, March 2, 2010 17:16 GMT

WEST ORANGE, N.J. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If you want to stay on track while traveling, pack a mom in your suitcase.

Although mothers and attorneys Monique Pryor and Shawne Morgan were eliminated from The Amazing Race this past Sunday (Feb. 28), the duo believe moms are the most qualified contestants for the global TV trek.

That’s because moms are great at multi-tasking and following a tight schedule, given all of the things they have to do daily.

Moms can also handle curveballs, like the time Pryor had to suddenly rush her child to the hospital while wearing three-inch heels.

Moms are used to sleep deprivation too, a constant factor on The Amazing Race.

Though both are skilled mothers, Morgan – who’s a real “nurturer” – was the mom of their team.

She was constantly reminding Pryor to take her vitamins during the trip and offering to pluck her eyebrows.

The Amazing Race airs Sundays on CBS.
