My son recently developed this fascination with cars. + with cars, I don’t only mean Go Mater + Lightning McQueen, of the Cars 2 fame (which I intend to watch with my son as soon as it opens here ;)). Yes, the little man breaks into peals of laughter every time the screen shows that hilarious introduction between Mater + McMissile. I am not sure if he appreciates the humor this early, though. But one thing I am certain of – he adores Go Mater!
I also mean his toy cars, which he absolutely love! As of now, he has 2 toy cars + a Toy Story train part of sort which makes for an improvised car + an alphabet-musical toy, in a shape of a car (which led the little guy to think that it is, indeed, a car too!) He plays around with these toy cars, rolling them up the side of his playpen or in our bed. He also has his first car (the type that is big enough for him to sit on, much like the real deal) which he rides around the house every single time he gets the chance to.
Apart from that, whenever we’re out, you’d normally see him crane his neck so he’d have a better view of the road + gleefully announced “car!” whenever he sees one zooming by. He would also try to work his way to the driver’s seat where his dad sits + plays with the steering wheel + the horn whilst waiting for mum to go out of the house.
And to top it all off, bonding time between dad + baby includes watching all these videos on car racing + Race car driving experiences on Youtube!
What is it really with cars + boys? My baby can’t get enough of cars, even Jared’s dad is also car-crazy, talking about his cars most of the time + would even consider giving names to his precious cars! Crazy, right?
Well, I guess this shows that regardless of size + age, boys will always be boys 😉
