33 Thoughts I Have When I'm In My Mom Car

33 Thoughts I Have When I'm In My Mom Car

1. WHAT is that smell.

2. I have got to remember to crack the windows at night so this thing can air out.

3. When will this kid learn to buckle himself in?

4. I should really start carrying full sized trash bags in this car. 

5. Why are all of my cup holders ALWAYS full.

6. I should get more cup holders.

7. Can you buy cup holders for cars? I wonder if stroller cup holders will clip on somewhere.

8. No, we cannot listen to Disney Radio. 

9. I can never find a pen when I need one.

10. Wonder if the bank will accept a check written in crayon...

11.  I should probably throw away yesterday's Chick-Fil-A trash before we drive through again today.

12. Maybe that smell is a chicken nugget lost under the seats somewhere.

13. Why is my steering wheel sticky?

14. Every place on Earth should have a drive-through. I will drive across town to the dry cleaner with a drive through and not think twice about it. If I opened a business, it would definitely have a drive through.

15. God, that counting app is annoying.

16. I wonder when the baby will actually wear headphones...

17. Listen to him counting! He's sooooo smart!

18. The Chick-Fil-A drive through girl just called me by name. At least she knows to double down on the Polynesian sauce. 

19. I will throw that iPad out the window if he doesn't start playing another damn app.

20. I wonder if I can get away with driving all the way home before he starts screaming for chicken nuggets.

21. *bites chicken nuggets into 100 pieces and hands them back*

22. Wait, does he have stickers?

23. No. No stickers on my windows.

24. Do we own Goo Gone?

25. Oh hey, Dad in the minivan, I see you rocking that kid wagon and I'm jealous of your DVD player. 

26. So many red lights, so few minutes until nap time.

27. I think my next car needs WIFI so we can stream anything other than THE COUNTING APP.

28. I wonder if this chicken nugget covered salad is really healthy. Like, could I just order a #1 combo instead?

29. Oh, no sir, don't you even think about falling asleep in this car!

30. *singing at the top of my lungs to prevent a car nap*

31. Almost home, almost home, almost home.

32. Please transfer, please transfer, please transfer. 

33. Ok, but seriously, what is that smell?


  1. Ummm, those are pretty much my thoughts exactly! I agree about wanting everything to have a drive thru. It would make life so much better!

  2. Just found your blog, and this made me laugh so hard!!! And you should always just get the #1! :)

  3. Not gonna lie - the DVD player was supposed to be only for our long trips. Yeeeaaahhh, with a 5 year old and 3 year old, every trip is a long trip!

  4. "Singing at the top of my lungs to prevent a car nap"... Hahaha, yes! I feel you. Gotta keep those babes awake so they'll nap at home!

  5. I am sitting here wondering "was the transfer successful?!" and if so, PLEASE share your secret because this is my major parenting fail every. single. time.

  6. Our cup holders are always full of junk, too! It grosses me out. And drive-thrus are definitely more convenient when you have a van full of kids!

  7. Car rides with little ones are always an adventure. Anything can happen, well, almost anything. LOL. Thanks for the laugh!

  8. You are honestly a breath of fresh air and I seriously laught out lout possibly rolling around on the floor reading your blog!

  9. I just lol'd so many times. ALWAYS double down on the Polynesian sauce

  10. Milk. The smell is old, dried milk. Or maybe that's just my car.

  11. Haha this made me giggle. All the truth. x
