Best Laid Plans

This weekend we traveled north for a family gathering. The Husband and I thought we were pretty swift because the gathering was scheduled for early afternoon so we planned to give our tot his lunch prior to departure and let him take his afternoon nap in the car. It's about a 2.5 hour drive so assuming he fell asleep quickly, he would still get roughly his full nap. We also packed his jammies and an overnight diaper so that we could get him ready for bed before we returned home and then just carry him in the house and put him in the crib. Ha. Ha. Ha. HA!

Admittedly, he did fall asleep both on the way there and on the way home. For about 20 minutes.

Yes, those are Star Wars jammies. Shut up.

But, no matter how quiet we were or how many soft soothing songs we tried, most of the ride was like this:

Today, however, I drove home from the store listening to "Sweet Child Of Mine" (Sometimes I get nostalgic.  Go ahead and mock.) and in the ten minutes it took to get home - he was out like a light. Next time I will be making a playlist of 80's Hair Bands. Not that I own music like that. Shut Up.
