Well...clearly I have had a hard time getting back into the swing of blogging since coming back from Mexico. I am hoping to remedy that this week. Thanks for sticking with me.

So moving on...
Every week my oldest two kids have piano lessons. This means every week I have one glorious hour {slight sarcasm} in the car with my youngest two while we wait.
Have you noticed how long an hour feels to a 3 year old and a 1 1/2 year old? An eternity.

Here is some of what goes on while we wait.

When I'm brave and let N unbuckle we play with his cars or whatever other toys we find hiding in the car.

When I'm REALLY brave I might let him play outside the car on the sidewalk. This usually involves him putting on any item of clothing that has been left in the car. Including his baby sister's pink hat. Are you sensing a theme? There are often lots of items to be found in my car. Don't judge.

And sometimes it's just too hard to wait. So we end up with this, which has it's benefits.

After weeks and weeks of this we have gotten into a groove, and sometimes I even enjoy the waiting. An hour with my two little ones, no interruptions. No phone, no computer. Just me and them. Gotta love it.

Hehe thanks for the laughs! My mom drove me every week to piano lessons, and 14 years later, I am so appreciative of it... it's one of the greatest blessings: to play music! You're a good momma :)
