On The Road With Kids

Learning to smile and pretend the noise comes from the radio :)

Our lives have changed ever since we got a minivan. Not only trips are more comfortable, but as the kids get bigger, they’re also getting funnier.

After Dad buckles Melissa and Andrew up, he goes to get something we forgot (which almost always happens).

Me- “Are you excited we’re going to grandma’s house?”

Andrew- “Yeeaaah!!!” *further toddler boy grunting*

Melissa- “Well, actually… You see, daddy went inside the house, so now the car can’t go.”

Me- “It’s okay, he’ll be right back.” (getting to the other side to buckle Holly up) “Now we’re all ready to go to grandma’s house, yaay!”

Andrew- “Yaaaay!!!” *further toddler boy grunting*

Melissa- (chuckles) “It’s funny, you said that, and I passed gas.”

–on the road–

Andrew & Melissa- “Oh oh oo oh oo oh ooh” (singing along to songs on the radio)

Melissa- *sudden wail*

Me- “What’s the matter?”

Melissa- “My book fell.”

David- “If you throw it on the floor, it’s gonna stay there.” (or something to that effect)

Andrew- *extremely high pitched scream for a boy*

David: (looking at the rear view mirror) “Melissa, take your foot off his seat.”

Andrew & Melissa- *toddler fight ensues*

~another song starts playing~

Andrew & Melissa- “Oh oh oo oh oo oh ooh”

~back from grandma’s house~

Melissa- “Where do we go next?”

Me/David- “Home.”

Melissa- “But I want to go to a store somewhere!”

Andrew & Holly- *crying duet*

Me/David- “Oh no, we’re done.”
