A couple of days ago my car was replaced with a larger vehicle with 3 rows of seating. Claire and Katie were pretty excited about the new car and loved being able to spread out. I love the fact that they can be separated and maybe they will stop fighting in the car.
Yesterday they went for their first ride together and Katie wanted to sit in the rear seat. Claire sat in the middle with the baby. It was wonderful to have Claire and Katie in different seats. I think it might have been the first time that I didn’t have to break up a fight in the car. Normally, I will have to say, “Keep your hands to yourself” and “I said to leave her alone” and “I want you to knock it off and I mean now” many, many times on a 20 minute drive. This is a HUGE improvement.
I mentioned to their dad how great it was to have Katie sitting behind Claire, clear in the back.
He said,” Yeah, it’ll be great until Katie figures out how to make a garrote.” I wonder if they cover prison shanks in pre-school too.
