Sunday we went to visit my mom and sister. While we visited the kids played very nicely outside. Several hours later, it was time to head home. We put the kids into the car and Aidan immediately began crying. I assumed that he would tire himself out as he had not had his nap and would sleep on the way home. Unfortunately, we had driven about 20 minutes and Aidan was still crying and screaming "Outside!" Randy pulled the car over and took Aidan out of his carseat. Though he was finally outside, he immediately began trying to climb into the car. Randy buckled him back in and Aidan kind of wheezed while we slept for the next 30 minutes or so. When we were about 20 minutes away from Aidan, he woke up and immediately began crying and screaming to go outside. When we got home, I sent him to his room to regroup. We definitely were not going to reward his behavior on the ride home with being able to go outside and play! After a few minutes he calmed down. Though the meltdown was over, I was sure of it, we are definitely in the terrible two's!
