3 is not so far from 16

Well, we bit the bullet and finally bought Ari that new truck he's been asking for. I'll tell you one thing, he's a persistent little cuss, he is. Valerie and I talked about it, and decided we weren't going to find a better deal, especially with the recession and all, so we did what any reasonable parent would do, we bought our three-year-old a vehicle. Needless to say, he was thrilled, and for the first time in a long time, speechless. He was so excited he didn't even put on matching shoes when he went out to see it for the first time.

I figure we'll just put a tarp on it and it should be fine until he gets his permit. Unfortunately, Ari said that I can't drive it. Doesn't want me to scratch it up. Figures. Ungrateful little thing. Oh well, it should be fine in the driveway for the next 13 years. But it's really going to be hard to shoot some hoops with that truck in front of the garage.


  1. I'm rolling on the floor laughing! The picture of Ari with two different shoes is classic! And the commentary is hilarious. How the heck are we going to play basketball, Luke?! By the way, how is the new roof? Is it done?

  2. The new roof is done! They finished it yesterday, and it really looks great.

  3. that truck is radical! I'd totally steal it from your driveway...

    oops! now you know.
