Driving in cars with boys

In a desperate attempt to get Elijah to sleep this morning, I grabbed my purse and keys, put him - still in his pyjamas - in the car and drove around for forty whole minutes trying to get him to fall asleep. Why is it that he will fall asleep in the five minutes it takes to come home from the shops and I don't want him to sleep, yet when he's in desperate need of a nap, forty minutes of boring, conversationless driving sees him awake the entire time?

I was hoping the whole time that I didn't get randomly pulled over by a cute police officer, as I wasn't properly dressed either.

Now all I have to show for my efforts is a bigger ecological footprint and an emptier fuel tank.
