Yesterday afternoon it was so warm, we had the windows down. While sitting in downtown traffic, I hear Ezri yell out “HI THERE, MY NAME IS EZRI!”. She was talking to the lady driving the van next to us, who also had her window down. She said hello back. Then my 3 year old gave me heck for not also saying hello.
That evening we are driving home and I drive over a manhole cover that is sticking out of the ground. There is a small bump. My 3 year old pipes up from the back “What did you run over mommy”?
“Well, under the ground are all these pipes, this is water the water goes when it rains. The sewer covers are access to theses pipes. I tried to avoid driving over that one because it’s sticking out of the ground and I don’t want our car to get a boo boo, we love our car, don’t we?”
Two minutes pass..
Ezri: “If our car has a boo boo from driving over the waterholes we can give it a band-aide and a sticker. A green sticker. Our car likes green. It can have a green sticker AND a green lollipop.”
