He and I had many many different sets of Lego over the years - with my tastes running to the castles and medieval sets - and his predominantly in the city sets.
But I still remember those fire trucks.
And now my Munchkin has a fire truck of his own, thanks to his oldest cousin. And excellent taste in toys...
Yesterday as I put his coat on, he told me he needed a zipper in the back.
When I asked him if he needed a zipper so I could put his batteries in, like a toy, he said...
"Mommy, toys don't have batteries"
Sniff sniff - made this Mommy proud!!!
(and just to be honest - some of his toys do - but not many)
