My kids have made it a (very very annoying and obnoxious) habit of not listening to me. In one ear and out the other.
They also have a habit of holding things out the car window. Yeah. Blankets, dolls, toys..whatever. Apparently it’s exhilarating. They scream with glee when the wind catches whatever object they’ve decided gets an adrenaline rush. It’s weird. I know.
And guess how many times I have said, “Don’t do that….you’re going to drop it out the window and I’m not going back to pick it up!”
So…Saturday we’re heading to the beach (on a 65 mph highway mind you). Diva decides it’s Etch a Sketch’s turn. I’m enjoying a conversation with hubby when we hear a loud “BAM!” as the Etch a Sketch hits the side of the car and out onto that very busy highway, followed of course by full blown hysteria.
Think she learned her lesson?
R.I.P hot pink Etch a Sketch.
