Little Einsteins to the Rescue!

If you've been "keeping up with Cade" at all, you know that we've been having a terrible time with him riding in the car. He does fine just running around town, running errands, short trips... but take him to his grandparents for the weekend and he cries bloody murder for a solid hour. Actually it's been taking over an hour because I have been stopping at EVERY EXIT to calm him down & then we start again. He's also been getting car sick, vomiting after every car trip that is longer than 10 minutes.

Today was different. Today's trip was peaceful & quiet... not a whimper or a tear shed... not a peep from my child in the back seat.

Why, do you ask??? I give all the credit to those Little Einsteins!!!

We decided to get Cade's Christmas present early, a portable DVD player, complete with his favorite, a Little Einsteins DVD... I couldn't believe it... it WORKED! He sat so still & was so good the entire trip. Even when it started getting dark this evening, he was fine. Just watched on. I am thrilled!

We also put him in his BIG car seat. It's still backwards facing but it sits him up higher, so hopefully he won't get so sick. And so far so good!
