Backseat Driver

Ever since we bought our minivan I've aquired new help driving. Toddler can now see out the front window as we drive along. He loves to point things out "Tree Mommy!" "Big truck, vrooom!" "Train, train, train! Choo-choo!" and of course he repeats everything until I say it back, "Yes, that is a big truck!" "Yep, the train says choo-choo!" and so on. He also likes to squeel "wheeeeee!" as we go down hills, like a rollercoaster. And now he has started giving directions. "Turn it 'round! (the wheel) Turn it! 'Round Mommy! Go down! Watch out cars, watch out! Wheee! Turn it 'round Mommy!" I particularly love the "Watch out cars!" that he yells at all the cars we pass, as if I'm a threat to them lol. Driving anywhere is much more exciting these days :D

That is cute!

And my toddler does the same thing -- repeats until you acknowledge what he's said. "Gween! Gween! Gween! Gween!! Gween!!!!" "Yes, that IS green." And THEN he can move on. :LOL:
