We've only had the minivan since late August. I hadn't truly realised how dependent we are on some of its gadgets and toys. Until today. The DVD player broke. Yeah, seriously.
Little Boo was surprisingly relaxed about the situation. (Thank God) But he talked the entire time we were in the car, from daycare to home. The entire time. Non-stop.
Have I mentioned our commute is at least 45 minutes long?
Now, don't get me wrong. I am so proud of our 4 year-old and his amazing vocabulary and his love of conversation and social interaction. (Have I mentioned hubs and I are major introverts? Not great parents for keeping up with a majorly extroverted preschooler.) But where does he get the energy? By the time we got home hubs and I were completely exhausted from listening to his chatter and trying to answer all his questions.
We are truly hoping that the system will magically reset itself overnight. Or the DVD fairies will pay a visit. Or something. Wish us luck!!!
