I have the BEST boys EVER! I took the boys down to visit the IL's down in Florida this past week and due to scheduling conflicts/mishaps I was going down alone with the boys and DH could not come. 8 hours in the car each way with both boys and they were seriously perfect angels! I was SO dreading this trip with them alone and they must really love me because there was not one bit of crying/screaming! They even played with each other in the backseat and laughed a lot together. I will say however as a tip if you're ever doing this kind of trip, don't drink ANYTHING so you won't have to try to fanagle two young children while you go pee. ick!
Also, some advice to those of you with young ones.....don't ever introduce childrens music in the car. At this point I wish we had never played childrens music in the car and kept it strictly to the house so we could have endless road trips without "john jacob jingleheimerschmidt", etc. Or better yet, if you are to purchase your child childrens music, play it for yourself like 30 times before you decide whether or not you can live with it. I can live with Raffi on endless replay but not this other VERY annoying CD that is evidently Finn's new favorite. but hey, it kept him quiet and happy for an 8 hour road trip and I got to listen to my music during their naps!
yay to be home!
