Planes, Trains and Automobiles

Daphne is really into cars, trucks, tractors and airplanes right now.

She has a construction site puzzle that she likes to look at, and as she points to each piece of equipment I dutifully say its name so she can try it say it, too. Push tractor. Rolling tractor. Scooping tractor. Digging tractor.

I really need to learn my tractors.

This love of hers is A-OK. I walk down the doll aisle of Target and get shivers up my spine, because am I the only person in the world who finds dolls slightly creepy? Except Cabbage Patch Dolls. Do they still make those? I like them. Daphne can have Cabbage Patch Dolls.

Until then, bring on the trucks.

(I will admit here, secretly, that I do really like My Little Pony. The sparkly hair and the designs on the hind-ends and the colors are all so pretty.)

(Don't tell.)

Haha you mean you don't like things such as bratz dolls? I'm with ya, they are creepy!

Yes, you must teach Daphne the correct tractors. I have already been teaching her that her orange one is a Kubota. She'll learn her colors by tractor brands. :)

They do still make Cabbage Patch Dolls! I had those when I was little too! Trucks and cars are easier to maintain though.

Blue is New Holland. Green is John Deere. Red is Massey Ferguson. Yellow is Caterpillar and Pape'. I don't remember if I ever bought you a doll. Dad wanted to play Legos.

Oh I would put Blue as Ford first. Don't forget red Cases, that one is important. Yellow is also JCB. People need to stop overlapping colors!

Then comes specifics; excavator, bucket, forks, etc.

Hopefully this year Daph will appreciate rides :)
