Max, the car maven
It started with Max recognizing Toyota Siennas everywhere we went. He could easily distinguish them from Honda Odysseys, Dodge Caravans and other minivans. He'd squeal whenever he'd spot one on the road; he could even sight them at night. He has a definite preference for 2009 models (the kind we have).
Then he started pointing out our babysitter's car, a Honda Accord.
Between the popularity of those two cars, there is a whole lot of squealing in our Sienna when we go out.
This weekend, we were driving on a highway behind a Lincoln Town Car. Max was getting really excited; Dave and I had no idea why. Then we heard him say "airplane." And I realized: a year and a half ago, we took a black Town Car to the airport.
"Max, you want to take a car like that to the airport?" I asked.
"ESSSSSSSS!!!" he said, nodding happily.
I am just floored by his total car recall. I have to think of ways to put this to good use! We can definitely work on articulating numbers, for one. And, hmm, wouldn't Max look great in a car commercial?
