My son has a fascination/addiction to cars. It’s sometimes hard to control him when he sees something that he really likes. The outcome? Our diecast collection is growing. In fact, the container is half filled. I wonder how long would it take before we buy another container.
For his 1st birthday, his godfather gave him his first car. He loves this car so much. He brings this car everywhere, he would literally drag the car where he is. I remember when initially a part of the tire dropped. He was wailing! Asking his papa to stick it back for him. Even helping to secure it. When it finally broke down, my superman son steered it so much that the part holding the wheel snapped! Snapped! He was devastated of course, but he kept on playing though. When the steering wheel died, we have no choice but to keep it in the storage otherwise he might get hurt. Everyday, he would drag me towards the room, holding my hand and pointing to the car… Saying “Car… Car”. Day after day we go back to the room without the car.
So for his second birthday, we’ve decided to buy him a new one. Before his nap, I was telling him to sleep early because when he wakes up, we would go buy his car. When he woke up, I was telling him “Let’s buy your car… RED!” He was all smiles. When husband came back, we went to buy it. He was so behaved in the car initially. I was even proud because I thought he understood our talk of no fuss until we reach home tonight. When we reach Toys R Us, I was showing him Lambie plush, he pushed it away. When I pointed the direction of thr cars, his eyes literally lit up. He was so excited to try them out. He initially was playing with Lightning, but when the Vintage Car was brought down… He completely ignored Lightning. Hence, we went home with his new car.
When we got home, he cried a lot because he wasn’t able to play with the real car. I told him, we bought his red car but he wouldn’t believe me and insisted on waiting for his papa with the car. When he saw the car, he quietly went to bed.
The next day, when he saw the car, he was so happy. He played a long time. I guess, it was right to get the car. It made him really happy. Advance Happy Birthday Edward! We love you.
PS. Please take good care of the car, we don’t want to make it a yearly gift.
