Amber Dusick writes & illlustrates the column:  Parenting: Illustrated with Crappy Pictures.  This week posted in Huff Post, ‘The Inability of Children to Hold Onto Toys in A Car’ is hysterical!  She writes and illustrates:  We recently went on a trip with the kids. In the car. It wasn’t very far, but we were in the car for a good four hours. This detail is actually irrelevant because the following happens EVERY time we are in the car. It is just that it happened 721 times during our trip. This is the story…

We are in the car. Driving. Actually, Crappy Papa is driving because he usually does and this is one of the reasons that I married him. (Seriously, willingness to drive was a requirement on my “has marriage potential” list when I was dating. I hate driving. Except bumper cars. Those are slightly fun because the whole point is to be bad at it.)

What was I talking about?

The car. So we are in the car. Before they got buckled in, Crappy Boy and Crappy Baby carefully selected toys (from the piles on the floor of the car) to hold and play with.
