The boys played with their Matchbox cars together for over an hour this morning. They both have had a love affair with cars and trucks ever since they could move objects with their hands...so, a very long time. I've realized that you can never have too many Matchbox cars, and so we currently have a bucket of about fifty of them, with more in storage waiting for their turn.
The other day Mark and I were talking about the boys' love of cars while we were waiting outside of a restaurant and watching them play with their cars, and we decided that great advice to first-time parents of a boy would be to never leave the house without a Matchbox car. Forget the diapers, forget the sunscreen, but don't forget a car. Because look at all the cool things you can do with them!:
Do yoga with them!
Run them over with a dump truck!
Show off their engines! ("Look Mommy, they have the same engines!")
