3 years, 5 months.
I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again:
You’re a much more daring little boy than I was at 3 years old; 30 years ago back in 1984.
Last week while test driving a Lexus IS-F for my other writing gig, you and I discovered a passageway that connects the trunk to the back set.
It’s a very small passageway, barely big enough for me to fit my head through.
We had just gotten home from school and you wanted to play in the car while Mommy started dinner.
With you in the trunk while the trunk door was open, I walked over to back seat passageway to look at you from the other side.
But in the 5 seconds it took me to get there, you had already decided to see if you could fit through the hole, and sure enough, you did. You squeezed through!
There you were, so proud of yourself for being my little proactive spelunker.
I admit, I find it quite impressive. That’s a good skill to have, right?
We learned a few days later that Mommy’s Honda Accord, as well as the Hyundai Azerawe’re driving this week, have similar passageways.
(I wonder if other little 3 year-olds across America have discovered this cool trick too?)
Like a Parrothead enjoying touring all the Margaritavilles in the world, you are now making a hobby out of crawling through various car trunks to the back seat.
I’ve been supervising the whole thing each day for the past week as I let you play in the car until dinner time.
That’s what dads are for, right? It’s part of my job description to help lead you to these adventures, also known asdadventures.
There are just some things you’re going to exclusively discover and experience thanks to your daddy. This is probably one of them.
