There is nothing worse than a screaming kid in the backseat of the car. There is NOTHING that you can do except shush them and tell them it is ok... or you can blast Death Cab for Cutie's Codes and Keys...especially the song Some Boys. Holden loves this song. Loves it like he instantly calms down and then falls asleep as soon as it is on. I feel like I have a secret weapon against my son.
