Driving with the Youngest

The Youngest is teething. These four words have dire consequences for the sleep in our house. The morning naps have been few and far between and the afternoon naps almost non-existent. This afternoon after 3 failed attempts at a nap I decided to go run errands. As I pulled up to our first stop I went to get The Youngest and she had fallen asleep. Rather than wake her up I got back in and drove home. When I got there I realized that her best interests would be better served by staying in the car so we went on a drive around the neighborhood. We live by a lovely riverside drive, so we went through the woods and by the lake, and saw these intrepid people ice fishing on a 40 degree day.
A little later we drove by Harriet Island -
Then we finally arrived back home after about an hour and then it was time to meet the Elder and the Younger at the bus stop.
We had a lovely walk home and now it's time for a snack.
How was your day?

We had a similar day--teething, disturbed sleep. We headed out and actually finished our errands without a meltdown, and everyone snuck in a nap/rest after that. Hope you get some extra rest this weekend!
