Dd is almost 15 months and it's getting to the point that we can't take her anywhere if the drive is too long (45 mins seems to be the limit) ...at that point she just starts having a meltdown. If we get stuck in traffic or something we are screwed. We feed her, give her drinks, toys, books, whatever. Is it just a phase or is there a trick to make it easier? A lot of activites are an hour away (family) and this summer is shaping up to be a busy one.
Also, she freaks out around dogs. Takes her a good 20 mins to relax, but then if she is walking around and the dog comes by, she freaks again. We tell her, "it's okay" and show her how to pet the dog and can get her to relax, but if the dog surprises her again, it's a meltdown. Everyone has a dog (but us!) it seems. Any ideas on handling the dog situation?
It *really* annoys me when she freaks out all the time. And with new baby coming, I'm trying to get some of these personality quirks under control. Be honest...am I expecting too much?
