Dear Holly: You’re Still Playing With Your Roblox Toys From Christmas

5 years, 9 months.

Dear Holly,

Near two months after Christmas, it’s interesting to see which toys are still getting the most play time on a weekly prize. I would have to give that prize to your Roblox toys.

If it weren’t for your brother, I’m confident that Roblox toys would never have been on your wish list.

In fact, now that I think of it, I hardly see him play with his Roblox.

Yet, conveniently for you, he lets you drive your Roblox characters around in his Roblox cars.

It’s basically part of your morning routine now, as well as your weekend afternoon activity.

You drive your Roblox characters around on the carpet- as you are in a world of your own!



Dear Jack: You Only Love Being in My Jeep When I Take Off the Top

10 years, 5 months.

Dear Jack,

Last weekend felt right to go ahead and remove the hard top from my Jeep for a while.

I was surprised earlier this week when you specifically requested, “Daddy, will you drive me to school? I actually like being in the Jeep when the top is off.”

You say there’s not enough room in the back when the top is on.

I’m sure a lot of it too, is that you like being able to, as you sister says, “Crawl through the window to get in.”

So for my 40th birthday dinner out, we drove as a family to a neighboring town with the top off.

There were zero complaints!




Dear Holly: I Taught You How to Drive Your Pink Jeep Wrangler This Week

4 years, 11 months.

Dear Holly,

Though you received your pink Jeep as a Christmas gift, the weather’s just now getting nice enough to drive it!

Up until now, your brother has always driven it with you as the passenger.

But this week, you asked me if you could drive it for the first time by yourself. You were ready.

You were hesitant backing it out of the garage. I assured you it was okay, as I instructed you to steer while I pressed the gas pedal with my hand.

By the time you drove out of the garage, you didn’t need any more lessons from me!

You were gone.

To enhance your driving training, your brother chased you on your pink Big Wheels.

You are proud to drive a Jeep like Daddy!



Dear Jack: Building and Testing an Erector Race Car with Papa

10 years, 3 months.

Dear Jack,

Though I was convinced you had already spent the rest of your Christmas money a while back, you surprised me by revealing that you still had a leftover Target gift card.

After careful research there in the toy section, I brought to your attention a $15 race car, made by the brand, Erector.

You decided this was the most exciting way to spend your money, but specifically stated that you wanted to wait to build the car the next time you were with Papa.

And that’s exactly what you did.

Not only did the two of you spend a couple of hours building it, but you also tested it out on cool ramps.

Good thing you have Papa to help you with stuff like that, because I am confident I would be useless in a project so technical!



Dear Holly: Taking Driving Lessons For Your New Surfer Girl Pink Jeep

4 years, 8 months.

Dear Holly,

You’ve been asking for a pink Jeep for a while now. Well, this year when it was being decided what you would get for Christmas, Mommy told me, “Like Daddy, like daughter.”

That means that your “main” Christmas gift this year was a pink, electric riding Jeep, which is now parked next to my black Jeep in our garage.

With this only being your first week into owning your Jeep, you’re still taking it a bit slow; as your brother is eager to give you daily driving lessons, until you are confident enough to drive your pink Jeep on your own.
