Yesterday on the way home from daycare, tragedy struck. In an instant, a normally peaceful car ride home turned into a nightmare for all.
The DVD player stopped working! (AAAAAAGGGHHHHH!)
Without the DVD player, MLE finds it horribly difficult to do anything but whine and cry and throw everything you try to get him as a bribe to behave. MLI sits beside him in his carseat with his hands over his ears shouting, “AIDEN BE QUIET!” Which only causes CareerMom to admonish him, which causes MLE to cry even louder so as to be heard. It’s a self-perpetuating nightmare from which the only escape is arriving home.
But this brings up a quandary see. We have come to the conclusion that a new vehicle is in order, but of course with gas prices being what they are and new vehicle costs nearing astronomical, we’re putting it off a bit longer. But whatever we do get will have a built-in DVD player rather than the little mobile deal we have now. We’re on our second player and I hate to spend another $100 on a DVD player that we might not need in a few months. Then again, $100 is a heckuva lot cheaper than a $38,000 automobile.
Alrighty then…I’m off to Radio Shack.
