I am not sure how this always happens to us...and I'm almost 100% positive it only happens to us.
My fantastic mom moments are tallying up and I'm in the lead with "Most Embarrassing" or "WTF, Seriously?!"
Last month we drove to Northern California, which is about 6-7 hours depending on traffic and how your toddler holds up. At this point Dan and I pride ourselves on road trippin' with our nugget.
