They both tend to latch on to certain subjects and obsess about them for awhile. Letters. Numbers. Planets. Trains. Etc. Right now, the newest obsession is gas. As in gasoline. Not that they aren't into passing gas, because they're boys and farts will ALWAYS be funny, they are just more excited about fuel.
It started when we had a streak of days in a row where we stayed at home and I got a little cabin fever. So I asked the boys if we could go for a ride to get some gas. Surprisingly, they were both excited by the prospect. We went to the gas station, they got out and helped me pump gas by opening the gas tank, inserting the nozzle, and pressing buttons. I showed them the diesel nozzle versus the unleaded nozzle and said that our car uses unleaded gas.
|Pumping gas never looked so cool.|
|He needed all of his lovies to make it through the car wash. It was a little scary for him.|
|Johnny, on the other hand LOVES the car wash.|
"Excuse me. Does your truck take diesel?"
To say the owner was surprised is an understatement.
Oh, and Johnny was wrong. The pickup ran on unleaded. In case you were wondering.
