Nora-Go-Round (freeze frame)Recently I’ve been worried that Nora might have inherited the apparently dominant motion sickness gene from my paternal grandmother. My father and all his siblings have it; I have it; and now it looks like Nora might have it. She doesn’t mind being strapped into her car seat in the car, as long as the car isn’t accelerating – and I mean that in the proper vector physics sense. Any time the car goes faster, brakes, or turns, Nora lets out a howl of annoyance. More than once I’ve seen that “Oh god, please make the world stop spinning!” look in her eye. It’s really heart-wrenching to see her feeling so poorly. We travel with a towel in the car at all times now.
