No Mummy’s Car May 24, 2012
Observant or just a genius.. May 17, 2009
We all think our children are geniuses of course. Well in Hayden’s case it is actually true 🙂
We were playing around outside of a restaurant waiting for Kara, we were actually standing on some old railway tracks so Hayden was busy going “chooo chooo” (his explanation for a train obviously) and he’d just got off my shoulders after running around doing a Indiana Jones impression (“da da da da-da, da, da da da” etc – he is actually pretty good at it!). Then a truck went past on the road, about 100 yards away or so. He announces the truck as usual – “Truct”.. then a blue Prius goes by and he shouts out “Mummy!”. Now I’ll explain why he’s so clever. Kara has a silver Prius. The Pruis is not that distinctive, from a distance it looks like any other silver car. I’ve not seen him do this to any other car. So somehow he recognized the exact car model of his mum’s car from a hundred yards, and the fact it was a different color didn’t perplex him. Personally I was pretty impressed.
Scotty October 10, 2007
Scotty’s been and somehow he managed to leave without being pooped on or peed on. Scott was thrilled to be here as he finally found someone smaller than him!! haha. Sorry Scotty!!! In fact it was great to have Scotty here. A great excuse to great drunk, play some golf and go to another Colts game! It reminds you how much it sucks not to have your friends around and accessible.
Hayden is still going through his fussy period, but he is also learning to sleep for longer periods. We are trying to get into a routine of going to bed early and sleeping through the night. He still likes to get up to feed but he is definitely sleeping for longer periods which is all good for his mum and dad!!
We were just driving home from a restaurant where he was crying his little lungs out and we realised he liked turns so we snaked our way through the neighbourhood with sharp turns and he loved it. I think his future is sorted. Racing car driver and he is growing up in the right city to make that happen!! Lewis Hamilton watch your tail! (Well he would probably race Indy Car or Nascar but I can’t name any of those red necks :))
