A Boy and His Trucks

Post to Twitter .

It doesn’t matter how big or small the boy is they definitely love their trucks!  And the bigger the truck the better.  And if it is a tractor trailer truck…. even better!

In Atlanta there are always a million (slight exaggeration) tractor trailer trucks on the freeways and the boys love it.  With each and everyone they see they exclaim “Woo!  Biiiiiig truck!”

Yep, everyone of them.  So yes, we do hear “Woo!  Biiiiig truck!” approximately a million times.  And that is no exaggeration since we are hearing it out of the mouths of two toddlers.

It’s no different if it’s the small Matchbox kind.  Tractor trailers are a big hit with those type too.  Oh, and trash trucks.  The boys have a strange obsession with trash trucks.  But that will be for another post. I can’t even imagine what they would do if we had the MBX Super Convoy Assortment.  They would be ecstatic!  They would literally go nuts.

The other morning Owen and Ryan were intently playing with their Home Depot tractor trailer and it was too cute to not capture.  Plus they were actually sharing and cooperating so that was worth documenting in itself.

With daddy gone all weekend in MA for a family funeral we had to keep busy somehow.  And luckily the trucks were a good source of entertainment while mommy made lunch.  What things do you entertain your kids with while preparing meals?

    Alicia – Thanks for the information! I started a few discussions today in your blogfrog community. Will those count toward the challenge or did they need to be started yesterday?

    As for the comments, I am (and have been) desperately trying to figure out a way to either change the color of the font, bold or something. For some reason the css code seems to be linked to the tag code as well so if I can it, all of it changes which doesn’t make it any easier to find. I’m still new at the whole custom coding so it could be me, but I really, really want to change it!! I just don’t know how?? Any suggestions? There is also one other thing I want to change when you go to the comment section. I don’t like how it comes up with the author information box, but I can’t figure out how to remove it. Ugh. The joys of learning something new.

  2. Max always says “Ohh big tractor”.

    We really do have very similiar little boys!

  4. Thanks for dropping by and leaving such a sweet comment. I had no idea people actually listened to my music. I do, but I guess I didn’t think others would. Good to know. Do you have favorite music? I’m open to suggestions. I shuffle through at least 10 different playlists and am constantly changing it up.

    And a couple things. I love the collage in this post. How do you make these. Love it.

    Secondly, I’m having a $25 itunes giveaway. My first ever vlog and giveaway. Go check it out. http://weloveiowa.blogspot.com/2010/06/25-itunes-giveaway-to-say-thanks.html

    I wanted to mention this to you specifically because you are by far my best blogfrog member. Unfortunatley the challenge starts today and goes for a week. All you have to do is go to my community and start a new discussion today and the person with the most comments wins. I know you’ve recently started some which I’m going to get to btw, but you must add a new one to be entered. Sorry.

    Hope you are having a great weeekend.

    P.S. I love the changes over here too. I’m going to go add you to my GFC in a sec, but before I leave I thought I’d mention I had a hard time finding a place to comment. Is there a way to bold it or something?

I would LOVE to hear from you!
