...the volume control on the kids, really wish it existed.
I have this strategy of turning up the music in the car if I just can't take the whining, screaming etc. and usually it helps after a minute or so. Sad, I know, go ahead think I'm an awful parent, I know, I know. Anyhow, after turning down the music the other day Q piped up again with a really whinny voice and I went to turn the volume down on him, as in I reached for the knob, and then realized bummer I can't turn that noise down, ha!
