Monday Moments: Tuesday Edition
Last year around Easter I found this little monster truck that looked like a dinosaur and bought it for Gabe. His big sister asked if it was a real one and mentioned that we should have got him Grave Digger. I had apparently bought into something I didn't know existed. The dinosaur truck, it was real, and all of the trucks on the store shelves were replicas of real trucks...pretty soon whenever we sat at the computer one kid or another was asking us to find videos of their toys on You Tube.
So, this year, when the commercials for Monster Jam started coming on TV, we decided that maybe we should let the kids see their trucks in person. They loved it! I took tons of blurry photos of trucks jumping and spinning in circles...and a few photos of Gabe, who was so overstimulated that he fell asleep at the end of the show. We've been joking ever since that maybe we need to turn the Monster Jam DVD up as loud as it goes to get him to nap.
