I knew my Dad and son would be two peas in a pod with their love for cars but I never expected that Buba’s love for cars could get any bigger than it already is. I couldn’t have been more wrong!
My Dad rebuilds old cars and when my Uncle Mike joined us at my parents with this hot rod, Buba was in pure car heaven. They were everywhere. Buba’s car vocabulary has grown exponentially too! Now, all I hear all day long is car this and car that and “lets go see the cars!”
The one thing that tickled me the most was when my uncle parked his Dodge on the grass and Buba ran up and said, “I want to see under the hood!” How he knew that’s what he should say and that there was anything under that hood to look at, I will never know but it had us all in fits of laughter. He stood there attempting to pry it open himself while we laughed around him.
To my Dad’s complete pride, Buba is running around screeching at the top of his lungs, “Cars are my life!” I think I have the next Nascar champion upon me.
So the last two weeks have been full of car chatter…
“I need my hot rods.”
“I can’t eat without my hot rods.”
“Let’s park the cars first please.” then he can sleep
“Papa can touch my cars, not you Mommy.”
“Open the hood again.”
“I need to see inside again.”
“Check out all these cars.”
“I got cars and hot rods Mommy.”
“Say goodnight to my cars, they sleeping in the garage.”
“My cars sleep in the garage, I sleep in my bed.”
“My cars eat breakfast with me.”
“Should we wash my cars too?” after taking a bath
I really don’t think the car chatter is going to go away anytime soon, you know because “cars are his life” and all. lol
