car sickies

We took a trip to Charlotte, NC this last was for a dear friend's baby shower (I'll post all about that later!). It was just me and the two boys. I was really hopeful that our travels would be smooth...Judah's older now, Lucas does so well in the car around town (unlike his brother at this age). Well, about 30 minutes into the trip Judah started saying he felt I stopped at a Walgreens and made a little purchase...


I really hoped it would help him feel better and maybe even put him to sleep so the trip would go by faster for us all...but...this is Jbyrd we are talking about.  It took the edge off but didn't make him sleep. (I finally gave in and drugged my kiddo and he still didn't sleep...all you benedryl pushers take note!)  It's supposed to last 6-8 hrs but around hr 5 he started saying he felt sick again and a second dose didn't really seem to help :(


So we pulled the handy dandy plastic bag out and he rode like this for the last part of our trip...thankfully he never used it.  Poor little guy :(  I was hoping this would be the summer we could travel freely about the world but clearly, that is not the case.  
Oh yes, and Lucas did pretty good on the way to Charlotte, he was not as happy on the ride home...but we survived. 

This picture brings back so many memories of my sister puking on car  Oh the Joy.

Oh poor little guy! That picture of him with the bag is so cute. He will surely look back on that and laugh. I got carsick for the first time ever a couple years ago on the Road to Hana in Maui. It was awful. I feel for him. I didn't even know they made Dramamine for kids. Good to know. Hopefully he outgrows the carsickness.
