Have You Seen This Car?

Lately, I’ve been spending my mornings with my cup of coffee reading the newspaper instead of perusing the blogosphere. This car, the Cozy Coupe, made the paper this week. The Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum in Cleveland inducted this car into it’s collection last weekend. How about that? At least three of my neighbors have this car in their backyards as well! Ed and I always think this toy is kind of useless, since the girls have trouble pushing it with their feet and then we end up pushing it for them, but they don’t move their feet with the car and then one little foot gets stuck under the car. The article says that Little Tikes has sold more than 10 million of these cars, and “that doesn’t take into account its reputation for surviving multiple owners.” We got this car free from a friend whose grandchildren had outgrown it, so who knows how many owners it had?

Toddler Talk

This morning, as I was trying to get a little extra snooze-time, Emmy was in bed with me. She plopped down on my stomach, and said, “Cheeze sti’? Bu’ter?” I’m guessing she was hungry, and cheese sticks and butter must be her favorite foods at the moment. What a combo! Usually she asks for “Cheer O’s, mick, bow, ‘poon!” Did you get all that? Yes, she has to specify that she needs a bowl and spoon to eat her Cheerios and milk! Otherwise, who knows how I might serve her cereal in the morning?
