Car rides

Three kids definitely bring a whole new meaning to "don't make me pull this car over!" We live really close to one of the busiest intersections in PA (who would have known?!?), and every. single. day. we get stuck at the light to turn left. The light just sucks - it lets through about 5 cars, and the person in front NEVER seems to understand that the SECOND that light turns green you have got to go or else no one will get through. Then, you have to wait for all of the other cars before the light changes again. On a good day we sit through one cycle of the light, on a bad day we drive halfway to West Chester to avoid it. Unfortunately, Caroline HATES the car. She's okay with it if we're travelling faster than 50mph, but stopped at a light? Oh no. Not good. Caroline screams her head off whenever we're stopped. And then, Keith takes it upon himself to sing "go to sleep" over and over and over and over again at the top of his voice to either get Caroline to shut up OR drown her out - I'm not quite sure which. And Henry? Henry just yells "MOM MOM MOM MOM MOM MOM" while all of this is going on. If I manage to answer Henry (by saying "what, Henry?" - just "what" doesn't work because how does Henry know I'm talking to him?!?), he then switches to "where's pop pop? Where's pop pop? WHERE'S POP POP?" until he goes back to "MOM MOM MOM MOM MOM MOM". Lather, rinse, repeat.

And people wonder why I drink?????
