Road Trip

I tried everything to make sure it would go well. After all, no one enjoys being cooped up in a car for four hours.
I let him cry all morning before the trip and I even gave him a warm bath just before hitting the road.
We loaded up the car very remeniscent to the movie "How Does She Do It" where they pack their car to the brim only to realize that they forgot the stroller. (We opted to leave the stroller behind altogether).
On the road, my efforts proved futile and for once my nurturing soul felt torn in every direction. Moms like to imply that there's enough love to go around, but I just didn't know where to start. (Mental check - baby is STILL crying, may need a diaper check. Remember to check on the toddler periodically in case he falls asleep while holding an unfinished McDonalds soda cup. Oh no- time to pull over, I think the tower of luggage may have toppled over and barackaded the dog in the back!)
Whose idea was it to go on a road trip anyway? Oh ya - mine...

@Jessica Jollyjess aw thanks! I'm still on maternity leave, but I hope I can keep the momentum when I go back in April. Not looking forward to going back though.
