Houston...we have a problem!

This is the sad, little crybaby of mine while taking her first ride in a convertible, last Friday evening! Yet another example that I clearly brought the wrong child home from daycare last week!
How can my child not like riding in convertibles? There must be some mistake.

You see, her daddy brought home a 2012 red Chevy Camaro SS Convertible {with only 5 miles on it!} for us girls to have some fun in this wonderfully warm weekend. Prior to the car being started or moving from the driveway and as soon as we put her car seat on the back seat...she began her cry fest...which lasted the entire 2.5 miles to the restaurant. ...and then an hour later...cried the 2.5 miles all of the way home.

We thought we would try again on Saturday, and the weather was oh-so-nice at 75 & sunny; however, our schedule didn't permit time for a joy ride and we had to take momma's RX to Home Depot in search for a fire pit for our backyard.

Perhaps the lack of a roof startled her...I don't know. Regardless, I'm certain I will get her acclimated to convertible-bliss in due time. Afterall, my first day driving my own Sebring Convertible, at the age of 18, I was blaring Sheryl Crow's "I wanna soak up the sun" thanks to my mom! I am certain Miss L will be a convertible-loving, sun-worshipping, flip flop-wearing girlie!


  1. I know why she was so unhappy... you forgot to put her sunglasses on her and the sun was too bright!! See, I am always thinking of ways to make her happy :) Hope she gets used to a convertible!!


  2. I was gonna say too windy and noisy - my boys, even Brennan, hate the windows down for that reason. But if she hated it before you started moving I bet she felt not secure and safe because of the lack of roof. No worries mama, I'm sure she'll love it when she's older!

  3. Kelli - you may be right on with the secure (or lack there of) feeling. We'll try again...someday!
