Worst night! AW — The Bump

Worst night! AW

I've been MIA the past couple of days, because we've been out of the state visiting family.  It's an eight hour drive, so we decided to drive home overnight while LO was sleeping. 

I've got an adorable pet sugar glider, but he escaped from his cage without us noticing.  About an hour into the trip, LO lets out the most terrifying scream I've ever heard.  It was worse than getting his shots.  My husband started getting off the highway the second it started, no "what are we going to do now" discussion or anything.  Turns out the glider jumped onto his face, scratching up his cheek.  No blood, but LO was so scared he could not stop screaming for about 15 minutes.  I felt so awful.  That is probably the worst thing that's ever happened to him.

Then around midnight, my husband got food poisoning and had to pull over to throw up.  I can't drive a manual transmission, so for the next three hours, we had to stop every 45 minutes or so for him to throw up, then keep driving.  I felt so bad for him.

We are so exhausted, but LO is up and needing attention...I am drinking SO MUCH COFFEE.  We will be trading off naps all day!  I'm taking the first couple shifts though, since DH is still not feeling well.

Are there any other holiday travel horror stories out there?

  • Sounds terrible! We are home visiting for christmas and LO had her baptism today. She was asleep in her car seat when we arrived to church so we didn't take her out and disturb her. Apparently that was the wrong thing to do according to my MILs mom, she refused to be in all pictures because we didn't take her out and properly greet her. Get over yourself.

  • @hersheymolly, that's ridiculous!  What a weird reaction.  You'd think people would understand letting a baby sleep.
