Car rides have become very difficult for us.
It has become very apparent
that Lexi does not like to ride in the car.
She pretty much hates it.
We have tried everything we know to do
and have only found 2 things that work.
We can either sing B-I-N-G-O non-stop
(don't even think of taking a breath or a drink)
or we can let her watch videos in the car.
We have never allowed Lila to watch videos
in the car unless we were on a trip.
Times are changing.
Mama needs peace.
We all do.
After a particularly trying day yesterday
where Lexi screamed,
Lila cried even with her headphones on
and I had a sore throat
from singing B-I-N-G-O ,
I gave in and put the portable DVD player
in the car this morning.
Worked like a charm.
We'll use it when we need it.
Yesterday was not a fabulous day.
Thankfully today was much better.
How cool is it that this doesn't make me even slightly nervous.
They have so much fun together!
As the saying goes,
the bad days make you appreciate
the good ones more.
