What Time Is It?

Tool Time!

ready for action!

My brother drove home from Knoxville for Tater Tot’s birthday party last Saturday.  As if driving across the state (and Tennessee is a L-O-N-G state, in case you haven’t noticed) weren’t enough to show his complete devotion to his older nephew, he brought two gifts with him.

First is the firetruck you see on the floor.  It has flashing lights and sirens, plus a ladder and doors that really open.  Apparently, that’s very cool from a 3-year-old’s point of view.  Tater Tot has two other firetrucks, but they’ve been cast aside for the one his uncle gave him.  

The next gift is what you see in the picture:  the Home Depot power tools set, complete with safety goggles.  The hat is leftover from the Bob the Builder show we went to, but it does complete the look, does it not?  Can you imagine how much help he’s going to be to his Daddy now that he has his own power tools?

To say that Tater Tot loves these tools is like saying Boo Mama thinks cheese is “just okay.”  Understatement. Of. The. Year.  His joy knows no bounds.

In fact, last night he was carrying the tools around in his tool bag, and he said, “I wuv my toowels.  They are PERFECT for me!”  Later, when he got himself all decked out in his goggles and plastic hardhat, he grabbed one of his saws declared, “I’m weddy for action!”

Yes, he is.  Every minute of the day.

    Oh he and my youngest would get along marvelously. Ian is CRAZY for Bob the builder right now, and all things vehicle related for matter . Can we fix it? Yes we can!

    This is awesome! I’ll have to remember those fun tools for Brennan one day. In the meantime, I’ll soak up images of this precious one. He is so precious, and you can see the pure joy on his face when holding that drill!
