Have you ever tried driving anywhere with your kid (or kids)?
I can’t imagine there are many that could answer no to this question.
My car is like multitasking central! It’s always in my car that all of a sudden, out of nowhere, all the kids need everything. Time now.
One kids shoe fell off and they want it put back on immediately.
One kid wants the music turned up and doesn’t care that you are maneuvering through D.C. traffic. Car tunes are life people.
One kid wants a bottle. NOW.
One kid wants me to pick up the toy they threw out of anger because I couldn’t do something else they asked of me.
One kid wants me to hand them a drink. All the way to the third row. Because I have go go gadget arms.
One kid wants their shoes off because, shoes.
There’s chattering, demanding, singing, yelling, laughter, crying, and, on occasion, if I’m lucky, sleeping.
Don’t get me wrong. My kids are great road trippers. But sometimes their expectations of what mom can do while driving lead to some not so great car moments.
Thankfully, the car rides don’t last forever.
Well, there you have it, it’s been just another Manic Mom-day.
