Sweet Tidbits

Three recent tidbits from an important 2 1/2 year old.
1) It's a dream come true when there's any type of construction vehicle that passes his house.  If they stop and do work in front of the house, nothing else can be done that day.
When they cut the engine for a break, a certain 2 1/2 year old might panic that the truck has broken down. No worries, he'll come up with a solution. He may retrieve his wooden tow truck and interrupt the workers with an "Excuse me, you need a tow truck?  I got one!"

2) For the one chicken who always hides/gets stuck and we have to find, this 2 1/2 year old will become very, very serious about finding her. 
He will definitely help.  "I'm a good farmer, mama. Adri's a really really good farmer?"
 Said chicken will likely get some 1:1 attention thenafter.  Perhaps a firetruck ride?  A ride in a John Deere tractor?  Maybe just being lugged around. A very serious little guy will say:  "I take good care of my chickens, mama."
 3) If you need anything at all organized, this 2 1/2 year old will organize his way.  None of the blocks pictured below have been dumped.  Each has been carefully selected and organized in this manner.  "It's a building, mama.  A very good one for tractors."
This bit of randomness makes me smile. Hopefully you too.


  1. This did make me smile! He is just the cutest thing ever. I wish I could hang out with him for a day! :)

  2. Both my sons have been keenly interested in any workmen around our home or neighbourhood. There's no point trying to school through such events, we observe and learn instead....
    Your little man is delightful and knows what he likes.

  3. My 5-yr. old STILL organizes like this, though now it's extended to areas such as the clothes in his drawers, hanging in his closet, his books, and the family silverware, just to name a few. It's sometimes very messy looking to me, but it's ALWAYS very organized to him. :)

    I loved your post. What a cute little one, and I love the pics of him w/his chicken. :)

  4. Awww, so sweet! It's been a very long time since mine was so young. =)
