Riding stuff is Will’s forte.
Proof is in the pudding people. And apparently that pudding is made of digital photography:
So it comes as no surprise that my little Werewolf is attracted to our neighbor who owns a ridiculous number of riding type toys. We were over there (coughwatchingWillrockBlueSteelcough) watching the chaos of testosterone unfold.
The star of Fear Factor: Will edition was that kid back there in the way back – behind the four wheeler….in the go cart with the skull & cross bones flag waving proudly behind him. That kid was all boy and loving every adreneline-filled moment of his ride.
Puff the Magic Baby hugged my leg and then finally ventured out into that wild boy chaos to find himself in a Little Tikes Cozy Coupe.
And he even got brave enough to test drive the go cart.
Kidding mother. He drove it only while wearing a helmet. And after proving that he could power slide to avoid oncoming traffic.
And you know what? The next time we came out, my little man gathered up his courage just a smidge more. Will was just a little more brave. a little more bold. He even climbed into the Bigfoot Cruiser to talk shop with his buddy.
It’s hard to believe that he likes cars as much as he does. Did you know that as an infant he would be oh-so-fussy and so we would take him outside in our old house and watch cars drive by on the road and he would instantly calm down? There were many a night spent rocking that old hand-me-down chair with his head leaning back on the little spot below our shoulder watching for the next Honda or Toyota to zoom by. And his head would perk up at the sound of the motor and he would turn and try to watch the cars as they raced out of view.
And now? Well, now it is all Matchbox cars and pointing at every Ford truck in the Walmart parking lot as he says “UCK….POPOP’s UCK”. I don’t care what anyone says – there are some babies that are all boy from the moment they are born. I didn’t teach him to love trucks. Heck I even introduced Barbie’s but they always ended up with one of their weirdly pointy feet sticking out of the space between the seat and the toilet rim. Ken would not approve.
So somehow Will caught this bug…this car bug. He doesn’t even really like to go fast or control the wheel or anything like the older boys next door. He just likes to pretend. And I highly approve of pretending.
Cole on the other hand is counting down the days till he is tall enough to hit the pedals on the motorized stuff.
And just to prove a point of how awesome our neighbors are, I placed blue dots on all the rider-type-vehicles in our neighbor’s garage. 14. And I didn’t even mark four of them. So eighteen in this shot alone. Isn’t that great? Like a boy’s dream world. Like heaven for Will. Like Mrs. Rides R Us decided to have babies…come to find out, she is a rabbit…with a muffler. Weird analogy, but you know what I mean.
Anyhoo…that is what we are doing lately. Taking photos of our neighbor’s garage and chickenpocking them with blue dots. I also wanted to tell you about our newest sponsor.
Scentsy! Raise the roof for warmers using a low-watt bulb to slowly melt specially formulated wax! Seriously though – these are no flame, no smoke, & no soot wickless candle systems that are a safe way to enjoy Scentsy fragrances. They also offer other products for your home, car, and travel. And did I mention they have holiday scents that are sure to send you right over the edge? Like Cinnamon Vanilla, Central Park Pralines, and Pumpkin Roll. Ah Dang.

And that’s all I have for now…gotta ride 🙂
NASCAR will be calling his name!
It is so inherent. After being a mom for 9 yrs to a girl and 13 yrs as a nanny to all girls, when I popped out my twin boys, (eeeeek) I cannot believe how it is just ingrained in them to LOVE all things with wheels. Trains, diggers, buses, airplanes…it never stops. Now that they are three, the obsession is going no where. Have you watched Canada’s ‘Mighty Machines’? It’s on Netflix and we aren’t allowed to watch anything else….
my honest answer says
You are so lucky to have such nice neighbors. ‘Dream House’ is coming true in more ways than one!
Kristen @ Popcorn on the Stove says
That’s adorable! It’s so funny how children start showing little pieces of their personalities.
Jess @ Little House. Big Heart. says
You have some pretty cute boys in your life, Ms. Katie.
Ashley @ Lewis in Love says
Will could totally be a baby model (must get his modeling skills from his mama)!
And with the first sentence of this post, this is all I could think of: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0287182/
Katie, I learned about Scentsy from you in your previous post. I tracked down a consultant here (Winnipeg, MB, Canada) and hosted a party a couple weeks ago. I got almost $200 in free stuff from sales and just got my warmers and wax this weekend. I absolutley love the stuff! What are your favorite scents/warmers? I love the crinkle warmer and the Enchanted Mist scent. (The solid perfume is amazing!)
Lindsay @ Lindsay's List says
oohhhh…i’ve heard only great things about Scentsy! My friend has some of their candles!
I love the new look of the blog! I hope I’m not totally oblivious… has it been this way for very long? In any case, super super cute. Speaking of cute – Will…. adorable. But you already knew that 😉
Melanie @ Mailbox Journey says
I love Scentsy products, I just had a giveaway over on my blog by a Scentsy Consultant.
Lori in OR @ Lighten Up! says
LOVE the photo of Will’s friend’s legs hanging down. You have a really good eye for the faceless shots.
haha! I didn’t even think about that…although I will from now on 🙂
