Fire Trucks, Airplanes, and The Garbage Man

I never thought that fire truck, airplanes, and the garbage man would be so important to me, but they are now.  Being the mom to a little boy is wonderful.  It’s full of mystery and fun as I watch my son discover the world around him.  When we found out we were having a boy I was shocked….I know there are only two possible outcomes, so how shocked could I have been, but I just assumed I would be having a girl.  I guess because that’s what I know.  I am a girl, my friends are girls.  Boys have always been a bit of a mystery to me.  I didn’t know what to expect in having a little guy running around with me all the time.  Let me tell you, it is so much fun!  I couldn’t love him any more than I do right now.  I love the way we have to go out in the front yard six different times on Friday to see the garbage man, and how he throws dirt up in the air with reckless abandon when we are gardening.  The way he says “Oooo” when he sees birds or airplanes. All of the grunts and growls crack me up!  It’s a whole new world and I love every second.  I find myself so excited to show him a construction site with lots of trucks because I know how much he will love it.

A few nights ago, there was a fire engine in our neighborhood and we happen to be outside.  My little guy couldn’t take his eyes off of it and yelled “truck” over and over.  It was so fun to see him get so excited about it.

The firemen let him get up in the driver seat, but after a few seconds he got scared and just wanted momma…I was ok with that 😉  They gave him a sticker.  He was so proud and waved as they drove off.

I can’t wait to see what kind of man he becomes.  I am trying to soak up each stage we are in (even though some are hard and I sometimes wish they would pass quickly).  As my mom often says the days are long, but the years are short.  I love my little man!

I hope you all have a great weekend, spending time with the ones you love.  Alisa and I are off to a good friend’s wedding this weekend!  We are so excited for our dear friend Kim to marry the man of her dreams!  We’ve been working on making some of the decor for the wedding.  Check back next week for a recap of that.  Hope you all have a wonderful day!

  1. So sweet. I too never thought that when the garbage truck made it’s roll through the neighborhood that it would mean we would have to go out wave and follow it’s path for a while. Ah, the joys of motherhood!
