Traveling to Canada...with a toddler!

Since the majority of my family lives in the Great White North...we do spend some time up there! Mostly we fly but, once a year we do the 12 hour drive up to my mom's house (just on the Canadian side of Sault St. Marie). It's a LONG ride. Anyone who has a toddler is making a "tragic" face right now...cause you know what it's like to try and contain a two year old, keep them occupied and not give in to the temptation of giving them snacks to keep them quiet. :) I don't usually do that but, desperate times call for desperate measures. Although Adriah is normally a very sweet and obedient child...this week she's decided to test me on everything! And I mean everything. So, we'll see if she gotten it all out of her system. I admit to being one of those people who thought good parenting meant well behave kids. I didn't ever say that out loud but now I know that what I was thinking. Now I know I'm not perfect but, I have read some very good books and thought I could put those things into practice and "my child" wouldn't be the one throwing fits. I was wrong. Very wrong. (Hmmm. I guess that's a bit too vulnerable. Oh well, now it's out there!)

Anyways, all that to say, think of me Sunday afternoon. We'll be gone all week and driving back Friday! My mom's house is on a gorgeous that means beautiful pictures! I'm excited to see family!
