In a rush to get somewhere and to quell the screams from the backseat (presumably over hunger) I stopped at Starbucks for muffins. Three cream-cheese-pumpkin muffins later (one for each of us) I learned a few things:
1. Pumpkin seeds make Cooper gag until he actually throws up a little bit.
2. Cream cheese filling and a two-year-old in the backseat (with no mama to supervise) is a bit messy.
4. Cleaning up cream cheese, pumpkin muffin crumbs and a little bit of throw up while careening down the freeway should -- perhaps -- be forbidden by law.
3. Once bellies are full, my kids zonk out.
