In the past month or so Madison's schedule has become a bit crowded and we have been spending considerably more time in the car. Of course more car time means more whining from the backseat which usually means I hear "Mooommmmm I'm hunnngggrryyy! Mommmmmm I'm thiiiirrrrsstttyyy!" before we even get to the end of our street. Instead of stopping at McDonald's for apple dippers and milk every time we get in the car I packed a small bin to keep on hand.
Currently the bin holds some juice pouches, lollipops, pretzels, granola bars, teddy grahams and a few fruit snacks. I also threw in a few plastic shopping bags to help collect trash and some napkins. Basically I raided the snack cabinet and threw a little of this and that in. I would like to pick up some small bottle of water too but I haven't made it to the store yet.
The bin has really helped during our daily trips though. All of Madison's classes tend to end right around lunch time and of course she is starving on the car ride home but not anymore!
*** I also wanted to post that Madison made another art display this weekend with her name! She has been painting up a storm lately and has more shapes that need to be mounted too!***
