I’ve mentioned a few times previously that we were working up to a long road trip. It’s the reason we took Rebecca to San Marcos in March, and why we’ve been taking her out more and more often, to stores and fast food restaurants.
So far, she’s been amazing on all these outings, but she wasn’t teething then. She’s teething now, though the pain comes and goes, usually only getting really bad for 30 minutes or so.
Our trip is coming up soon, and that’s really the only thing that worries me; that she’ll have sudden teething pains and start screaming while one of us is driving through heavy traffic in Dallas. But I think we’re ready otherwise.
My wife hasn’t slept anywhere but this house since we moved in (except possibly at her desk at work), and I’ve only spent one night away from home (the night before Rebecca was born). So we’re planning to visit my family in Seminole County, Okla., very soon. It’s about a six-hour drive under normal conditions; we’ll see how long it takes with Rebecca.
(I’m not announcing the dates of the trip here on the blog. I haven’t heard of a single instance where someone’s announced their vacation on a blog and then got robbed because they announced the date, but why take the chance?)
