One night last week, we packed the boys up in the car around 7pm and drove. We drove and drove and drove until 11:30 am the next day. That landed us in Colorado! On this roadtrip:
- Pogo started whining when we stopped for gas at 1am, which woke up the boys crying heavily. While Liam went back to sleep, Dash stayed awake for another two hours. Not crying, or even making a sound really, just playing with some toys and looking out the window.
- About 5 minutes after Dash fell asleep, a cop pulled us over. The boys promptly woke up and cried. Seeing our situation, the police officer quickly mumbled something about not citing us for our burnt out licence plate light and sent us on our way, retreating back to his quiet squad car. Dash stayed awake another hour.
- Despite those interruptions, driving through the night proved very helpful for the boys, who only had to hang out in the car awake before and a little bit after their first nap.
- We didn't fall asleep at the wheel!
Now that we've been here nearly a week, you better believe my two sons have been getting a lot of lovin'. And they've been giving a lot a lovin' back.
