Curiosity Killed the Cat?

Raising children is a curious task, indeed.

Take B, for instance. He loves all things vehicular. Just yesterday we were stopped at a red light on a road which paralleled the interstate, a truck-lover’s paradise. Honestly? B could have sat there all day. Every time an eighteen-wheeler drove by, he would utter “Twuck,” slowly, almost forlornly, as if it were a long lost love he’d not seen in years–one he knew, all too well, he might never see again.

So when B plays with toys, it typically looks like this:

B likes his vehicles.

Yet the other day, it looked like this:

that's not a truck!

What in the world? I thought, as I witnessed my little guy giving Dora the eye.

Seconds later, I learned that I wasn’t the only curious one.

I wonder if there's a truck under here.

They say that curiosity killed the cat, but in this case, it merely prompted B to look for it. (Oh my. I am sooo sorry for that. Just pathetic…)

Son, stick with trucks. For now at least. Okay?

    I can’t believe how much he looks like a mini JCO, pacifier and all! (haha, j/k on the pacifier. I think. What you do in your own home is your business.)

    The right truck can help you get girls. You are from the south. You know that. Maybe he has figured it out too.

    Incidentally, twucks can also kill cats. So cat’s have to avoid curiosity AND twucks.

    Bill used to say that if a tractor (preferrably John Deere) and an eighteen-wheeler were in an accident and a fire truck came to the scene, it would amount to nirvana for Will.

    on another topic, I would avoid a certain book about a owl and a feline and a pea-green boat. It might cause an awkward situation, say when an actual cat it sited in a pet store. I may or may not have personal experience with this.
