Have I said this already? Connor is fascinated with cars. If so, I can’t say it enough. JJ calls our vehicles Connor’s very expensive playpen.

It typically goes like this, Connor grunts and motions for the car, I cave and let him in and he climbs into the driver seat, and reaches to pull the door closed (he typically needs a little assistance) – he says “bye” – as in “go away and let me play now mommy.”

I return to my car with the volumes turned up, the lights on, the windshield wipers going, and every other gadget out of whack.
