Daddy's Pride / Cars

  • Kids and Trucks

    Like many kids my son's age, he too loves cars, trucks, and trains...basically anything that moves. Whenever he sees these vehicles on the road he points them out....for example, "Look a digger!" Whenever we go shopping he tends to pick out clothes that showcase his love for big moving things. And of course when we go to the toy store he's looking for toys that have wheels. So, last weekend we attended a fundraiser event that allowed kids to sit in all types of vehicles. Whoever came up with this idea is brilliant. The little man sat in a fire truck, trolley, bulldozer, ambulance van, and recycling truck. This made my son's day, and I am sure this made everyone's day as well. Oh, and I also got to sit in a huge dump truck. :) So, if you have an opportunity to go to an event like this I would do it. Your child will be super excited.

  • Things I Now Do And Know

    My 2.5 year old son influences me in many ways. Some are good, and some are not so good. :) Here's a top 10 list of things I now do and know. 10. I know how to pick up something heavy without hurting myself. 9. I know where to find the best pizza in the area. 8. I surf the internet to learn more about animated movies such as Cars, Madagascar, and Toy Story. 7. I go to the backyard, and kick the soccer ball around. 6. I go to the park, and play on the jungle gym. 5. I go to the beach, and play with the sand. 4. I play tag. 3. I watch PBS cartoons, and learn something everyday. 2. I play with toy cars twice a day. 1. I watch Nascar, and actually enjoy it.

  • Love Nascar

    Our son loves cars. He can play with his toy cars all day, and is more than happy to add more cars to his collection. He gets excited seeing real, moving cars on the street, and you can hear him make "Vrrooooommm" sounds. And of course he loves watching animation movies like Cars...repeatedly. :) So, this past weekend, we decided to watch Nascar on television, even though my wife and I never watch this sport. I guess we find it somewhat boring. Hopefully all of you will understand the way we feel about it. It's probably a lot more fun to watch at an actual event than on the tube. Anyway...as for our son, well...the little man loved Nascar. Our little man actually watched all these professional race car drivers compete, and enjoyed seeing them go in circles for a half hour. We couldn't believe that his love for cars will now include watching Nascar. As parents we will need to learn about the rules, terminology, and drivers that compete in the sport. Another thing that parents need to learn especially if they have a future race car driver in the house. :)

  • Vrooom Vrooom!!!

    My friend’s son cruises around his house in this motorized car. Toys have come a long way since the small toy cars I played with. I am sure my son would love this as his first car.
