Why Men Like Motors

From a very early age Wyatt wanted to be behind the wheel of power. It started with a simple,
"Hey Mom, look at me!"


Some of his early words were, "John Deer." He made a very grumpy old man driving the miniature John Deere gator.

"I got corn to tend, Lady! No time for pictures now..."


And when motorized vehicles were not available he attempted to coerce his cousin Adam into pushing him around the yard. Not such an easy feat considering the base rock is not a smooth surface.

"PUSH ME ADAM!!!!"


Then with bigger things on his mind it turned into,

"Can I just please start the tractor now mom?"


And with a need for speed he was saying,

"I am totally going to ride this here dirt bike one day soon!"


And on Easter all the boys got to drive the tractors for real. And you can see them wearing their "manprons" (aprons for men) in action!

Cute! We had one of those red and yellow cars!

I let my son sit on my lap and drive the car into our driveway sometimes! He has a blast!

Need for speed!

Look at that they are even wearing their manprons. They look like pros at that young age.

Wyatt and Adam especially like the manprons. I am glad though. It does keep them a smidge cleaner like a pinafore. And the grease around the tractors is notorious for staining permanently!

His expressions are too much! Manprons, I don't know how you managed to pull that off that day.
