For the first time ever, the girls and I actually had an enjoyable roadtrip together yesterday. Some highlights:
Bear, singing to a tune of her own devising:
I can do whatever I want!
I need my baby sister every day
I think about the things I want
I think about the things I need
Things I want and need
Need and want
Like cars and trucks and planes!
"Look, Mom! The toilet is eating my poop! Eat it all!"
An in-depth discussion of the various types and structures of watertowers
An explanation of the inner workings of giant power-generating windmills
An impromptu roadside snack at a very sketchy gas station
A dusky drive through a hollow filled with fireflies (so cool!)
"Mom, I'm sooooo happy" (while sitting in the carseat around hour 10 or 11)
Talk about why it is day and why it is night, including the sun standing still and the Earth rotating
A strange penguin toy
87 verses of "The Wheels on the Bus"
Lots of laughs, and not much crying
13 hours of girl time
