Saturday afternoon we took a road trip to Ikea. Now, ikea is only 37 minutes from my house so some of you may be questioning the term "road trip" but trust me, by minute 10 the parents were questioning our decision to go at all, and by minute 27 we were counting down Siri's estimated minutes until arrival. The kids were anxiously awaiting Siri estimating the same number of minutes as their age. At 5 minutes (Claire's age) until arrival they erupted into chanting "5,5,5,5" which lasted until it switched to 4. At 3 minutes (Noah's age) until arrival the chant was repeated. At 1 (Millie's age) they decided that instead of chanting "1" they would just say "da da" over and over, because Millie can't say 1 but she can say "da da." All three of them chanted for all of minute 37. It was the best minute of the whole trip.
