Meet… our car


If there were any doubt that my husband and my first born are made of the same ilk, I present two conversations from the past two days.

[Between Simon and myself]
Me: I think we should name the car, give it some personality.
Simon: ??
Me: I take it you don’t agree.
Simon: How ’bout we just call it “the car.”
Me: You’re no fun.

Between Liam and myself]
Me: Do you like our new car?
Liam: Yes, what kind of car is it?
Me: It’s a Taurus. Do you think we should name it something? [thinking perhaps I can get the kids into naming the car]
Liam: I think we should just call it Taurus because that’s what it is.
Me: Not something else, something fun… you can pick anything.
Liam: No, just Taurus.
Me: You’re no fun.

I’m banking on Jack being my companion in ridiculous things like naming cars.

  1. I’ve named cars in the past. I named a bicycle once, too. I’m on your side my husband would have said the same thing )

  2. Love it! Although that actually surprises me a little about Liam. He’s such a creative kid- I would have thought he’d come up with something fun! 🙂

  3. Ha! I’m with Keri…surprised Liam didn’t pick out something funny. Now, I’m even more intruiged to see how this conversation goes with Jack!

  4. Oops…signing as as the real me…

Have something to say about that? I'd love to hear from you!
