cruisin'


While out shopping last week, we made a quick stop in Toys R Us. We were not looking for anything in particular. The hubby came across a blue push car and thought it would be fun to let our little guy cruise around in it while in the store. As we buckled him into the seat, his face just lit up… he loved it. He held onto the steering wheel and waved to other customers as we pushed him around the store. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately), because there were no batteries in it yet, the horn did not work. Regardless, he banged away on it like it did! After circling the store repeatedly, we headed back to the aisle where my husband originally found the car. As I began to unbuckle our little guy, the tears started… as I lifted him out of the car, it turned to all out wailing. This being the first time that my hubby and I ever experienced this type of reaction to something our son wanted in a store, it caught us off-guard and we both quickly said, “ok, ok… we’ll get the car!”, as we buckled him right back in.


While not a planned purchased, the car has been one of our best buys yet. Little one just can’t get enough of it. It has replaced his stroller as his primary means of transport for walks around town. He loves sitting back in it, one hand on the steering wheel. In the pic here he is standing up, turned around backwards in it. Inadvertently, his little behind kept hitting the horn on the steering wheel... beep, beep-beeeep... he could not figure out where it was coming from and kept cracking up. Hilarious.


For such a little guy, he is pretty damn cool.

My daughter has the same car in pink. She loves it. Especially climbing it backwards the way your son is in the photo. She has, of course, tipped the damn thing backwards several times. She doesn't seem phased by it, though. I really wish she was...

So cute! It sort of looks like the wagon we have, only a little smaller. :)

I remember the first time my son freaked in a store over something he wanted. We did the same thing! It is kind of cute to see them passionate about something they want for the first time. We have a push car my son loves too.

As obviously the oldest here... I wish they had those when my kids were little. It would have saved me some back pain.

Thanks for visiting. And let me know how the martinis work out.

Be careful of that behavior. My almost 19 year old tried that in a brand new car the other day. Walk away...walk away. LOL.

Goodness I love little ones. What a precious story and I used to love to get them special little things like that push car. Treasure the days as they pass by all too quickly.

Popping in from SITS to say Good Morning.
