Top 10 Awesome Things About Being Trapped In the Car All Day

by Gina Valley

This week we’ve had the joy of experiencing lots of family bonding time in a cozy environment.  And, by “the joy of experiencing lots of family bonding time in a cozy environment” I mean that we’ve been trapped in our van all day together for 2 days.

It’s hard to say what is the best part of this together time, but here’s my Top 10 as of today.

Top 10 Awesome Things About Being Trapped In the Car All Day

#10.   Playing “Guess Which Side The Next Nose-Picker Will Drive By On.”  (Why are nose pickers always in such a hurry? Is there some sort of Nose Pickers Anonymous meeting they’re all late for?  I hope they don’t greet each other with a handshake!)

#9.  Cows!  You get to see lots and lots of cows! Bonus – you get to smell them, too!

#8.  Snapping tons of great “Look How Funny You Looked Sleeping Sitting Up” pictures.  Very useful for blackmailing teens at a later date!

#7.  Listening to 3 of your children play Name That Mountain! (“Is that Mt Hood?”  “I don’t know.”  “Shut up. I’m trying to sleep.”  “I think that’s Mt. Hood.”  “Is that Mt. Hood?”  “Shut. Up. I’m trying to sleep!”  “No, dummy, Mt. Hood is in Oregon.”  “We are in Oregon, dummy!”  “SHUT UP!”)

#5.  Pulling up to Fast Food Row, asking what everyone wants to eat, and hearing one kid holler “Spaghetti!”

#4.  Trying to eat a salad without a fork (Why do they always forget to give us a fork?  Why do I always forget to check before we drive away?).

#3.  Doing isometrics while you drive (or is that just me?).

#2.  Fielding a team for the How Long Can You Hold It? marathon.

#1.  Having your kids bond over a game of I’m Not Touching You! or Where Did That Go When I Dropped It?

I might have a whole different list after the drive home!

Laugh Out Loud!

    I thought traveling with one child was hard… I’m not looking forward to when the second is added.
