At 4pm today, Liam and I hit the road to go up to Layton. I was leary to take him for a 90 minute drive by myself because I couldn't sit in the back if he started to cry. (Note: I don't leave the house with Liam unless Ian can chaperone. I am serious. I don't go anywhere without my husband except work, but then Liam doesn't go to work with me. Visit Mrs. Poopydigs and you'll see I have this same posted phobia.) We had bought a portable DVD player at Sam's Club last week for our plane trip to Indiana at the end of the month. I introduced Baby Einstein and the DVD player to Liam this week. He loved both! (The DVD player, a little too much. He thought we bought him his own laptop as he is always after my laptop each time I work. So he drools all over "his DVD player" and sits on it, etc. if I let him).
Anyway, I strapped the DVD player up in the back seat so he could watch his Baby Einstein video all the way to Layton. (Without being able to reach it, so the player was safe.) What a lifesaver! He did so great!
"taking 4 kids and my baby to the park is really NOT what I want to do..." But we did it and it was fun and I of course took a bunch of photos!
He slept all the way home, and he's still sleeping now... Ahhhh...
