AT THE CARWASH

Amaxohydraclaustrophobia.
Amaxo: The fear of being inside of a car.
Hydra: Water.
Claustro: Being in a small or confined space.
Aka: riding through a terrifying carwash.

Out running errands with the kiddo’s this past weekend, I decided to take a detour through a carwash.  I figured this might be a fun experience.  We picked our carwash option, drove up to the moving path to take us through the carwash system. 

“Look guys! Isn’t this cool!?”
I think the look on my children’s faces says it all. 
NOT COOL MOM.

Ryan thought that it was actually fun and funny.  He even got so tickled by the idea that he screamed… his new favorite thing to do for every situation these days.  The scream was loud and Rayne immediately got scared.  Reese wasn’t sure what was happening but kept telling me, “Mommy, I don’t like this! I’m scared, lets get out!”

I couldn’t help but to laugh and say—“Look!! Bubbles!!” 
Reese would respond, “NO!!!! I don’t like the bubbles!!”

I had no intention to scare them with the carwash… but it was kind of funny. 

The car looks good too by the way.

My car hasn't been washed since I bought it in November because I'm terrified of the kiddo being scared out of his mind. :) It really needs to be washed...

Poor babies LOL. A few years ago I went in to the car wash and Emily was sitting in the passenger seat. When the dryer was right by her window I rolled it down. She screamed so loud because it scared the crap out of her. She is still ticked off at me for that HAHAHA!

My kids love the carwash. In fact the oldest boy tries to get out of the car to enjoy it more. Hayes is just yelling and pointing with glee. I think I would be laughing too if it scared them.
