Ah, the Holidays! I'm So Glad They're Almost Over.

I don't mind driving, but driving with a small child and a baby in the car makes me nervous. I worry -- far more than is justified -- that they are about to start bawling and be inconsolable. I know this is more than is justified, because A. sleeps in the car quite steadily, waking only when hungry and then falling right back asleep once fed, and T. is quite happy with me crammed between the two carseats, the video playing Backyardigans and some french fries from McDonald's. Goldfish are a serviceable substitute until they start serving fries, and he'll happily drink water from my bottle.

The commute to Albany for festivities was uneventful, really, altho we should have stopped and changed T.'s diaper. He peed through the one he had on and we had to clean the cushions on his seat.

Once in Albany, I decided not to cheap it up on the suites hotel like last year (that place was a dive); we stayed at a Marriott Towneplace with two bedrooms and a sleeper sofa in the living area. This successfully isolated nursing noisemakers from snorer from thrashing toddler. We didn't spend much time in the room, but it was perfectly adequate -- and the sleeper sofa wasn't broken, like where we stayed on T-weekend.

But it sure is nice to be home, where it is quiet and there are no dogs to stress T. out.
