I am never disappointed by son’s ability to make me smile. Yesterday on the way to take Lauren to school, Evan became extremely frustrated. I could hear his heart rate increase from the front seat before he passionately said, “MOM, why are the bulldozers RUINING our world?”
I laughed and explained that they are just making the roads wider and the roads will be much nicer once they finish.
He still didn’t find any humor in the situation,”Well their mommies must not have taught them to clean up their mess before they started something else.”
I was so thankful that I had just swallowed my drink of water because I have no doubt that I would have been wearing it otherwise.
The child is only three, but in our world he has not seen a road that leads to our home that is Construction-orange-free. It’s sad to say… there are three different highway/main routes that we can take to get to our home and all three are under construction and have been his entire life. So from his point of view, the machines are taking over.
