You make me wanna roll my windows down

Remember being in high school, how cool you felt to have the windows down and music blasting on those warm spring and summer days.

Well, Brayden and I had a trip to WV yesterday.  We were meeting up with the boys for Carter's basketball tournament.  The moment I loaded Brayden into the car, he starting screaming.  And he screamed for the next hour, pretty much the entire trip.  It sounded more like a temper tantrum than anything else.  He just seemed mad to be in the car.

There are few things more exhausting and frustrating than your child screaming in the car.  It makes me crazy, there is little you can do to improve the situation.  Brayden continued to scream...and I continued to get more and more frustrated.  

Finally I could not take it anymore.  All of the windows were rolled down (and I blasted the heat since it was not very warm in the morning).  I tried to drown out the noise for the next 20 minutes, to no avail.  Then came the radio, I am not sure even what we were listening to, but some how crossing the mountain in to WV, most of the stations turned into country music (heard an interesting mix of country and rap, thus the title of this post...I had to google right now to make sure I heard it correctly).  I did not care what we were listening to, just something to drown out his screaming and my thoughts of going crazy.  He made me wanna roll my windows down and have the radio up.

We finally arrived but I was so frazzled I missed the turn not once but twice.  Then I parked, got out of the car, paced the parking lot for a few minutes and finally unloaded Brayden...

who immediately stopped screaming when I put him in his jogger chair.

Tell me he doesn't know what is going on.

Oh my gosh, you poor love! I know when my boy screams and screams and there is nothing I can do to stop him, it sends my stress levels through the roof. Stuck in the car with it - much worse! But, I also have to say, what a clever little cheeky bum he is :) xx
