and you’re on a long car ride here’s what happens.
She screams and yells. And yells and screams. And cries. A lot.
And when she’s done crying a lot? She yells a bit more and then screams.
So here’s a list of items to have on hand.
Keep in mind, these fun things will only appease Baby for no more than five minutes at a time.
(Unless, you have boxes and boxes of baby wipes that Baby can pull out one by one. THAT will keep Baby quiet for a looooooong time. However, then your car will smell like baby butt and also you’ll be out of wipes.)
List of Needed Items (I am speaking from experience here):
coffee cup lid
Fake iPad toy
napkin to shred
teeny bites of Wendy’s nuggets
lid from a to-go cup
pats on the head
another napkin to shred
wolf ears headband from Great Wolf Lodge
cup of apple juice
empty Starbucks cup
a hand to hold
3 more pacis
a sock on each hand
pieces of the shredded napkin to throw
car TV remote
tickles on the feet
2 more pacis
empty water bottle to crunch
Well. There you have it. That’s all you need to keep Baby happy while on a long trip.
Also, you’re going to need a bigger bag.
Now for some cuteness to show you that she really is a sweetheart (when NOT in the car).
