All of a sudden my 1 year old doesn't like being in the car.... She was so happy for a while to be FF (she REALLY hated Rf-ing) and now unless I am going on the highway/ freeway (heaven forbid I stop at a light or hit traffic) she is whiney. We have given her toys... she is fine til she chucks them across the van... her twinsister doesn't mind being in the car (until she sees us pull into the garage)
is this normal? any tips?

I think some kids just go through this, especially when they are newly mobile. My oldest did it for about 6 months. Every Time I put her in the car-seat she would scream, "STUCK! I'M STUCK! STUCK! I'M STUCK!" non-stop from the moment the car door closed until it opened again. We lived in a big city with horrible traffic at the time, and I just had to tune it out. When she got old enough to enjoy using a Magna Doodle that helped a lot. My twins never got to that point, but they did go through a whining in the car phase; with them I bought some kiddie music CDs and cranked up the annoying music, and that seemed to work pretty well.
