Tiny Teenager

I feel like Lucy turned into a teenager this week. I was driving on the freeway, and she started crying pretty hard.. We were literally 5 mins away from our destination (it was the next exit!), when she started dry heaving. Ahg!! I kept trying to talk to her, and calm her as I sped up towards the exit! Then the vomit started flowing in slow motion in my rear-view mirror — NOOOOOOOO! So I pulled over in a random parking lot, pulled her out and got her all cleaned up. I was on the verge of tears when I got her out of the car, and she was so perfectly happy. Was she faking it!? As I called Brad, she sat on my lap playing with the windshield wipers and laughing her head off. That little stink!! So I went back, and tried to put her back in her car seat… The second I got her in there, she started dry heaving again!! So I quickly got her out and set her down in frustration. She then proceeded to shut the car door with her tiny hands. Then started happily clapping — “Yayyy!” — I stood there laughing in disbelief!! I was frustrated and slightly impressed. Either she gets extremely carsick… Or she knows exactly what to do, to get out of that car seat. Either way, I think I’m in for it with this one. 😉

    They say if they are still rear facing it could be car sick/motion sickness and turning them forward facing can help. I know the recommended age is 2 to turn them forward facing but if it helps it might be worth it!

    Hailey! You and your little lady are always dressed so cute! I found this brand online and thought you'd dig it! I don't work for them or anything, I just think little miss Lucy would be so cute in their outfits; love this line myself! So, sharing!

    I have a 6 week old baby who absolutely hates her car seat. Huge crocodile tears and sobs that make her hoarse. And all this happens during a short 10 minute ride into town. Needless to say, my husband and I are completely frazzled by the time we get home from any little errand. She is young, so I am sure she hadn't quite figured out the whole manipulation thing yet, but boy does it feel that at times. We are attempting our first trip to see family who live 2 hours away this upcoming weekend. To say I am dreading it is an understatement. Although frustrating for all moms who have to do this, I am relieved to hear that other moms deal with it also. The struggle is real. Thank you for being so open and honest, and for allowing complete strangers into a glimpse of your life. Sometimes it's not all rainbows and butterflies, but it's our extraordinary ordinary lives that make life joyful.

    I have one who has panic attacks and could win an academy award in regards to sitting in her car seat. Praying for you! Good luck!

    Ok first of all these pictures are perfect. Second of all I love stories like this because it makes motherhood more real. I don't have a baby yet but I know when I do it's not going to be perfect and I'm going to have moments like this haha. So it's a nice reminder of what it's like to be a parent 🙂 🙂
