Does anyone have one of these, whether it be a child or a spouse? Cason, for all of his...uh...I'll say "nuances", has always been pretty good in the car, save the occasional fit. He goes pretty seamlessly from car to stroller and back. Then there's my daughter. I wouldn't say she's laid back, but she's definitely not, er, hmmm...as "intense" as her brother. But for some reason she HATES riding in the car, and has from day two, when she had her first car ride. Last night, I was coming home from the in-laws. They live 20 minutes away and Kendall screamed from the minute I put her in the car until we got home and I put her in bed. The entire way home. The. Entire. Way. Home. She seems to do better if she can see someone, like her brother. But at night, forget about it. I usually end up sitting back there with her. The problem is when I am by myself. I find it difficult to drive and sit in the backseat. Any suggestions for what to do with a car screamer? It will make our two trips to Houston and St. Louis (don't hate on my awesome vacations) interesting.
