May 28

This evening we headed back to the town where Jess and I grew up and our families still live.

It is about a 2 1/2 hour drive, which is usually not TOO bad with the toddler on board. USUALLY.

This time it was like... well...  Like nails on a chalkboard bad.


He is having  hard time these days sitting still for that long, but my dear husband does not like to stop, so I ended up trying EVERYTHING to entertain this child. 

I put a movie on my laptop - he wanted to hold the laptop, he didn't care a thing about the movie.

I fed him cheese - he ate a bite and then fed it to the dogs.

We played peek a boo - for 30 seconds.

I gave him each of our phones - he called random people and screamed when I tried to hang up the phone.

My previously neat and tidy car is now a wasteland for everything within reach of me in the front seat.

What do you do to entertain your toddlers in the car?


  1. My toddlers were perfect and never gave me a moment's trouble.

    Okay, I lie!

    Well your husband fell asleep instantly anytime I started the car. So I just had to answer 3,964 questions from Will.

    Sorry, I have no solutions.

  2. Josh and I sing the ABC song, Itsy Bitsy spider song, and any other song i can think of. We also try and spot trains and planes. He like it.
