How far we’ve come from the days when a 20 minute drive from our house to the doctor’s would send Ike and me both into a whirlwind of despair. We seem to be on the go almost every weekend with extensive carseat time.
I owe most of our car-related stress relief to Raffi and other kids-centric music. Ike’s latest craze? Old MacDonald or more affectionately known around our house…E-I-O?
We took a trip over to Birmingham this Friday to see my little cousin graduation with her Doctorate Degree in Nursing (very impressed is this lowly Bachelor’s degree holder by the way). The trip was about 2 and half hours each way. He slept most of the way home, but on the way there, I’m pretty sure we heard Old MacDonald at least 1,000 times. Every time it ended we heard this from the back seat:
We played Old MacDonald from Raffi, from Dora, from Barney from EVERYONE! Over and over and over. But I guess that’s better than hysterical screams from the backseat for two hours.
Here is Ike and me with the beautiful smart graduate, who is also getting married this fall. What a year right?! We are so proud. This is about 30 minutes before Ike had a world class melt down and I was more or less shamed out of PF Changs, but let’s remember the good times shall we?
