We had the typical, Are we there yet? and How much longer? but the boys were watching movies, so it wasn't too bad.
I'm not going to tell you it was the best trip ever. Because, although what we did was fun and the family we stayed with was fantastic, the behavior was less than enjoyable. We drove from Buffalo to Maryland. Maryland to Philadelphia. Philadelphia to New Jersey. New Jersey to NYC. NYC to New Jersey. New Jersey to Buffalo. I should have expected it was too much.
I knew we would have bouts of anger and frustration.
I just didn't think they would be as common place as a tourist in DC.
I learned a lot last week.
On day four, I broke down. My patience was depleted. My drive was halted.
Big Boy noticed.
He cried and said, "All I wanted was a hug."
And we cried.
And we were okay.
Until the next day when it began again.
