Oh we took, how many months old was she? Babe? Week six week old baby. Uh uh What 3 33 1003 like three 1033 100 miles um Across the country. Which you know with criss crossing and go in different places, ended up being like four. You love someone different. Okay. So yeah, it took us six days, wow. And we have, I will say we have an electric car that maps where all the charging stations are. So two things. One the entire time one of us was in the back seat with her, one was in the front uh driving and then uh to the the navigational system if it finds all the it finds all the charging stations and and how long you're gonna be at those charging stations. So we exclusively eight and or clean the baby unless it was emergency or better at these stations. So you'd go and they're usually like near you know uh something random like a chili's or something. So we would go and take out one of us could get, take out and come back and we would just eat inside the car. Or at one point we took the stroller across a dirt field to a picnic table by an old creek and had Mcdonald's. And then um yeah, we we we took the northern route the way there and then we lived in and in the southern round the way back. And when we got there, we stayed there for a month. So we lived with her parents and uh five weeks, five weeks. And one of those weeks we were in um uh providence Rhode island. We ran an old haunted house. And what we're in. This certainly haunted house that will tell you, carrying a baby up and down those skinny skinny stairs uh will kill your back, I'll tell you right now. But it was it was, it was, it was awesome. It was awesome taking the stroller over those cobblestone streets. Um, and uh, but it was one of those things that I uh, a week ago was sitting on our porch and we live in a cul de sac with all these tall houses around us and trees were right under Griffith Park and I remembered that we did that and I just yelled, holy fuck. And it echoed and I was holding a baby is just one of those things. I look back on and go, what was done, Ayman? I don't regret it at all. It's an incredible experience. And we couldn't do it with Rose at her age now. We just couldn't so totally different. It was this thing of us partnering on this journey and this, you know, journey now as parents and also um, to, to learn as my wife put in the kitchen, how to parent and like, you know, uh what, six or seven ft by four ft space, you know, it was, it was really, it was really something, but honestly there was only one or two times, I can think where we, where we pushed the time a little bit and we're like the hotel still an hour away and she's screaming where it got bad. But it wasn't, it honestly wasn't this this, this, you know, it was scary, but it wasn't this this thing of ultimate hardship to get to. Like it was, it was something to occupy our minds really, it has asked the madness going on, I will say it was really, really surreal.
