I was laughing in the car to myself last week. I had to run an errand
Errands with little ones aren’t ever REALLY smooth, although this one was pretty smooth, it was filled with 3 year old chatter.
As you may have known from previous posts, my son loves ALL things with wheels, most especially trucks right now. The trucks of choice these past few weeks have been construction vehicles.
I happily tell my son, “Mommy needs to go to the bank” He, getting excited, replied “Jeremiah and Noah go with Mommy!!” I nod my head and smile, “Yes! Of course, I need you guys to come with me.”
I get the boys into the car and off we go.
We stop at a stop light, then he sees it, a BIG red dump truck, a REAL one. “Mommy! Mommy! BIG dump truck! Red Dump Truck! I see Dump Truck! Mommy Mommy!!”
“Yes, Jeremiah, I SEE it, wow!” I smiled at my cute little guys enthusiasm.
The light turns green and we continue on our way. Low and behold, we see a BIG yellow dump truck (I tell you they were out last week!)
“Mommy!! Mommy! BIG dump truck! I see dump truck!! Mommy I see dump truck!”
My reply “I see it too! wow! It’s sure big!”
Once we get to the bank, my sons say “I see Bank”. I just smile. He sure is cute.
Getting the transaction completed at the drive through, my son starts to talk about dump trucks NON stop. This little boy is adorable, but he sure can talk a subject dry. *laughs*
“I see dump truck. Where dump truck, Mommy? Go see dump truck? I saw dump truck!” and it continued.
“Jeremiah, I don’t know where the dump truck went, but we MAY see it on the way.”
He then replies “PLEASE!!!” As if I have the power to produce a dump truck right then. The mind of a child always amazes me.
“Jeremiah, as I stated, I don’t know if we will”
As we get closer to home, my little guy wasn’t to thrilled. We did not in fact see another dump truck.
But he did run and play with his little red one in his room.
PS. If you are curious what Noah was doing, he was complete quiet the WHOLE time! haha
