Road trip

on April 8, 2013

We took our first family toad trip to Dan Diego yesterday. We left Sacramento at 12:15 after church and arrived at my dad’s house at 9:05. All I can say about the drive is: we survived. It was awful. Sometimes it was downright miserable.

Cora didn’t sleep as well as we had hoped. She screamed a good portion of the time, and I spent what felt like most of the trip fishing her pacifier out of her car seat and giving it back to her. I also think she might suffer the same car sickness I do, as she spit up frequently.

Every time we had to put her back in her car seat her distress became worse. The last stop about an hour from dad’s was so heartbreaking. She planted her feet in an attempt to not be buckled in, and the look she gave me was a mixture between ‘how can you do this to me, mommy’ and ‘I hate you’ (if a three month old can even feel hate :P).

But we survived. And we are thinking of alternatives to our trip home: perhaps we will leave at bed time, drive halfway home and spend the night at a hotel and then finish the trip in the morning. We will see.
