Riding in the Car
We took some time and visited his grandparents; two of Patrick's cousins were also there, so it became a cool visit. Of course, we had to get in some Tractor time ... can't forget that.
Then, we headed out ... Jen still had about thirty minutes left, so I decided to just drive around the area.
I was comfortable in the car ... Patrick, different situation.
As he started crying ... I tried singing (this has worked before) and to my amazement, it only took two rounds of "Row, Row, Row your boat" for him to quiet down. About a dozen rounds later, I stopped as my throat started getting strained.
Then, the crying kicked in again.
After about three of these sets and about twenty minutes later, I glanced over my shoulder to find him fast asleep. I kept singing ... slowly dropping the volume.
Just as I stopped singing, Jen called to say she was on her way home. I turned the car around and took my family home ... what a cool night!
