The boy already loves buses, trains and firetrucks. Thanks to the demolition of the abandoned house next door, just 15 feet from his favorite window, he is now infatuated with construction vehicles. I’ve found him with his nose pressed against the glass more times than I can count!
His new interest in construction vehicles does not mean that he cares one lick for Bob the Builder though. I tried playing it for him, on Netflix, but his head exploded. He really is a picky tv watcher.
Also, I wish I didn’t sell, give away or throw out hundreds of dollars of Connor’s perfectly good Tonka vehicles from 2001. Or all of Connor’s Toy Story toys. Or all of Connor’s Lion King stuff. It makes me sick to my stomach to have to buy this stuff all over again.
So these little trucks from the Dollar store are going to have to do for now.
However I am going to miss that empty house next door. It was nice knowing there was no one over there who could see me doing my 90’s dance moves at the kitchen window while I’m doing dishes. Except for the feral cats. They loved watching me getting jiggy with it.
