...but a giant shiny digger pulled by a "dumpa" right out in front of our house!? The drivers of the vehicle were headed to the gas station on the corner for lunch, so we got to ogle the digger and dump truck at our leisure. Little Pumpkin wasn't quite sure what to think.
This whole digger and dumper obsession has gotten me thinking about nature vs. nurture. I swear that I haven't been pushing dumpers over dollies or anything, but this kid LOVES trucks and tractors and diggers just naturally. Especially if they are really loud. The two immobile ones outside our house may have even been too tame for him. Is it true, or am I subconsciously forcing my kid to be into "boy" things?
It was quite an exciting day. One of those days where you are lucky you are a diligent and watchful parent and that your child is still somewhat malleable to accidents which befall him. Enough said. We are all now safely tucked in at home, waiting for rainstorms and looking forward to the weekend! You?
