Wan Monas

Patrick is currently obsessed with "wan monas," also known as lawn mowers. He has one toy lawn mower, an old-school Fisher-Price popper which handily doubles as a lawn mower, and he has since adapted his scooter/pusher and Tonka dump truck as lawn mowers, too, for a total of 4 "Patrick wan monas." The obsession continues, and just the other day he pushed around a packet of wipes, toy cars, and anything else he could get his hands on and declared them all "monas." Every day he asks at least 30 times to "mow drass," even if we mowed yesterday. Even if we mowed THAT MORNING. We should definitely mow again! It has certainly upped my lawn care, which is good, and it is just darn cute when he helps. Joe came home mid-mow the other evening and snapped a few photos of us working away.

Only a couple more years until he's big enough to actually mow the lawn! Then I bet he'll not love it as much. ;)

I love how anything works as the toy of the moment. When Kalena was obsessed with cell phones, everything was a phone. Patrick is into lawn mowers, so everything is a mower!

I am glad saxon is not alone... in fact he says when he grows up he wants to be a lawn mower guy! Congrats on baby number 3! I love that you are following in my footsteps!
