Because once again, we have loaded up in the car, left well before the crack of dawn, and are now on our way to Nevada!
Okay, can someone clarify: Do some children SLEEP in cars?
Are there children that you can move from one sleeping-location to another without waking?
We snuck into the boys' room this morning three hours before their normal wake up time. We moved them, without even a whisper, through a dark house to a warm car. They were each given a sippy cup of milk, and we left in a dark, noiseless hustle.
So WHY are my children in the back seat occasionally shouting, "Truck! Choo-choo! Bus, Mama! BUS!"
No, dang it! Sleep! We have a nine hour drive ahead of us, lets start it off with a good four hours of driving before you wake up and want breakfast!
Oh! The boys just figured out where we're going and started chanting "Grandpa! Grandpa!" In the back seat.
They're pretty much in love with all their grandparents.
(Which is another good excuse to have visits every other month.)
