One of Hayden’s latest fads is telling us about everything he is going to do when he is older. He’ll be reading a book, say about cars, and then he’ll tell us that he is going to buy that car, and that car, and that car when he’s older. He might get to the end of book where it’s advertising other books in the series, and he’ll point to everyone and tell us he’s getting that when he’s older (except if he finds one that he already has, and he’ll remind us that he already has that one. It reminds me of when I was younger and trading Panini stickers and we could run through a friends stack (got, got got, need that one, want that one, really want that one, got that one, etc).
He does take it further than just things he is going to buy (and apparently he is going to be very rich as he is going to buy a lot, including an Aston Martin for his daddy :D) and tell us that is going to drive daddy’s care when he is older, and go on bike rides when he is older, and drive that dump truck when he is older, and basically anything we tell him he can’t do, he’s going to do when he’s older (like eat all those chocolate raisins when I’m older!)
