Car Wash

Liddy has never liked the car wash. It's been one of her big fears. I'm not sure how it started, but getting a car wash has always been a huge task. Usually we unstrap her and let her sit up front on my lap (passenger seat). She would still cry, but at least I could comfort her. Once, grandma thought it would be fun to take Liddy to the car wash. She learned very quickly it was not such a fun idea.

So, a few weeks ago, I really wanted to wash my car. I was alone with the girls, but dreams of a shiny car were too hard to resist. I gave Liddy a pep talk, and promised to hold her hand. In the end, it wasn't so bad. I thought, ok, we are turning a new leaf. So, last weekend, we tried again with daddy. She did great! Then, the icing on the, as we are driving, Liddy informs me that her window is dirty. I mention we can get the Windex when we get home (one of her many obsessions). "No", she says. "There's a car wash right over there", and points to Mike's car wash. Now, she is begging me to take to through the car wash! Amazing how quickly things change!
