cars cars cars





















picked up this match-the-shape board for little bb while shopping for a friend's bb yesterday
like the vintage looking cars and the retro color shades


after dinner tonight,
i took it out for little bb to play with.


we matched the shapes,
talked about the colors,
sang "the wheels on the cars go round and round",
ran the cars on the table....
....
just when i ran out of ideas to play with the cars,
i thought of pretending to get on the car and go somewhere for fun.


"let's open the door,
baba gets into the car and sits over here,
little bb sits here
and mama sits here...
close the door 
baba drives and let's go to the park!!!!"


the second time,


"let's open the door, 
baba gets into the car and sits over here,
little bb sits here
and mama sits here...
brownie and sugar sit here

close the door 
baba drives and let's go to the park!!!!"

the third time,

"let's open the door, 
baba gets into the car and sits over here,
little bb sits here

close the door 
baba drives and let's go to the park!!!!"

little bb went:
"mama???"

ooooooooooooo
sweeter than the sweetest dessert!!!! 
mama's heart skipped a beat!

i repeated the last ride twice
and little bb did the same 
"mama???"








talking about cars....
i would have never imagined myself buying cars or things related to cars.
ribbons? yes
lace? yes
zakka? yes
cars?  no!


but obviously, with a boy at home,
how can i turn a blind eye on cars.


99% of the cars little bb has are from my brother and sister in law:




















little bb is really spoiled!






the only few cars i ever got for little bb were these:





























quite obvious....
i was willing to get them because they were vintage and retro looking.....






little bb loves cars
and i guess i can only expect more in the house!


his love of cars extends to books that have pictures of cars....
and that explains why his favorite book is richard scarry's best word book ever
(i highly recommend this book.... so much in it with so much to talk about...
the book can keep the little ones entertained for a long while....
tonight, we talked about SHOUT and WHISPER....
little bb laughed out loud whenever i SHOUT and kept pointing back at the piggy shouting in the book for me to SHOUT non-stop.  boy, i think i am getting a sore throat.)


he loves the book so much that he has to sleep with the book...
just like tonight,
he held the book with both arms while going to sleep....
i tried to slowly pull it away from him after he has fallen asleep...
but those little hands held the book too tight


good night  zzzz
