11 Hours In a Car...With A Preschooler

Here I was all ready to tell the story of my horrible trip with my 4-year-old, but she did the worst thing she could do.

She failed to give me an interesting story. =/

We left for my writing residency in the wee hours of Tuesday morning. I had a book to read, but I figured I wouldn't make as much progress as I needed to. However, I only had 40 pages left to read once we reached our destination!

The first hour, she slept. Then we had to make a stop. Not long after she was asleep again. She did wake for some time and talk a bit, but she didn't fuss or whine. And on the last leg of the 11 hour journey, she napped again.

Not a terribly compelling story, I know. And since my husband was driving, I was allowed to get engrossed in the book I was reading, and forgot to take any pictures of the countryside as we drove, so I don't even have a picture to post!

Perhaps she'll make our trip back more entertaining. Probably, since by then I really won't want her to!

So, I leave you with one thing that came out of the long car ride. Go read Hunger Games! No, I haven't seen the movie, but the book is always better, and Hunger Games is a damn good book. ;)
