So Big

The Mayor is obsessed with being a big kid. So a few mornings ago on the way to daycare there was this exchange...

The Mayor: Mom. I'm NOT a baby.

Me: That's right.

The Mayor: I'm a BIG KID.

Me: Uh-huh.

The Mayor: I keep getting bigger and bigger.

Me: That's right.

The Mayor: So... can I drive the car?

Me: Like I'm gonna let you getcher greazzzy paws all over my styly purple fur? Um, no.

Why am I having movie flashbacks to Mexican men in low riders, hanging out their car windows whistling at girls passing by?

Ah... so you drive a pimp-mobile! We had one of those here for a while. The ugliest Cadillac you ever saw. The interior was (I kid you not) white fur. Seats, floor, headliner, steering wheel. Only the fuzzy dice were purple.

Sarah is/has gone through that "I'm big ,so when can I drive the car too," stage.

Except I let her. Just not by herself('cause she cant see over the dash, and cant reach the pedals). Since my car doesnt have airbags, once I pull in the beginning of the driveway, I get her, plop her on my lap and let her drive. I work the gas and brake, she steers.

She does well too. No crashes, nor drives off the driveway. Yet.

Do you have pink furry dice as well???

I bet the pretty colored wheel makes it all the more appealing for him too. That's so cute. I have been using the big boy leverage for a while now. Eat your food like a big boy etc.

I will roll you for that steering wheel cover.

Despite how much I totally WANT to roll Panda, I have to confess that I drive the most boring vehicle in the universe. The interior is a perpetual sea of grey... but a girl can dream, no?
