driving home

This is how you know that your children may have been listening to a little too much of L.M. Montgomery (Anne of Green Gables etc.): They start insulting each other by saying things like….. “Wesley has a beau.” Haha (And then coming to ask me if I know what a beau is.)

Also, a piece of friendly advice for other parents of young children. If you haven’t done it already, just go ahead and ban any kind of cheese snacks on car trips. I don’t know what it is about cheese exactly, but it always seems to come back up when we’re driving. Mom sent us home with a pack of string cheese today, and it was very much appreciated. We all love it – but it didn’t sit so well with Avery. And I was totally expecting it. I’d guess that about 85% of the car-sickness that we’ve cleaned up over the years started out with cheese.

After we cleaned up today, I laid down the law and said that we’re not eating any more cheese in the car until everyone is at least 8 years old.

That will probably be like most of the laws I lay down – it’ll last about ¼ of the time decreed…. But maybe that will be enough…

    Haha. I knew I would be reading a post, if any regarding the return trip home, about car sickness. I fear some of your families predictabilities are not preferable ones.

    So sorry about the cheese. I’ll try and remember not to give any more for the trips home.
