A dollars worth of fun...

Morgan found this little car for Owen yesterday at a garage sale. It was bargain priced at $1! Owen loves cars so it was a dollar well spent. Even if he only drove it once!

He's having a bit of a love/hate relationship with it right now though. The front wheels are a bit wonky and get stuck going sideways so this frustrates him. He gets out, closes the door and flips the car over to align the wheels properly! Then he flips it down and gets back in. He also gets irritated at the bumps in the sidewalk and driveway. He prefers a smooth ride! Today when my sister was here they were outside, Owen in the car, Naunee outside of the car, and Owen got stuck so Naunee asked if he wanted help. Instead of saying "K" or "yes" or "help" he gets out and runs into the house crying to me! So I had to go outside and "show" Naunee how to do it! Sheesh! He's definitely my kid!

Oh, and just to clarify, my agenda for the week is by no means busy. I posted it to show how not busy I am! The things I posted for each day are really the only pressing matters that need to be done and each takes only an hour or two. Except for scrapping on Friday. Which is of course, the highlight!

$1!!!! woohoo, that will be the best dollar you ever spent on Owen! Trust me, we found one free for Phoenix years ago and he when he see photos of himself in that car he thinks back on it foundly. =) It's really sweet seeing them so happy. And it was cheaper than a happy meal! =)

Great deal! Ha ha...that's a Cozy Coupe, you know! My DD is 15 and we STILL have hers in the garage! She drove it around so much that we seriously cannot part with it. :-) Now that she wants a car of her own, I tell her that she can drive the Cozy Coupe!! lol

Quite the bargain! We bought the same little coupe for Alec. It was by far his favorite toy! He loved to gather treasures for the little compartment in the back. Riding inside and pushing it LOL

A few years later Alyssa loved it too! I always thought it was one of the best most used toy purchases.

I'm sure I have pics :)
