Alex is a car-wash-aholic. He LOVES to go through the car wash. Every Thursday we go through a car wash because he insists that the car is dirty. Seriously? I mean, it’s winter. I don’t really mind a little dirt on the car, this drives my husband nuts and how exciting can going through a car wash really be? Very, apparently.
Anytime we are driving around he points out any car wash he sees…. “hey, look mom!! a blue one! a red one! let’s go seeeeeeee!!!!” Last week, he spilled his snack and crumbled his scone and then said: “look, now WE have to go vacuum and wash the car mom!” Unbelievable.
What is it about the bubbles?? It’s loud and not that fun for me… but Alex points and says.. “look, look, it’s getting the dirt out!!”
“Ooops! It missed a spot!”
I am sure I am not the only one who has a child that makes infinite requests to do something they love. I admit, that there are times I use…. “want to go to the car wash?” as a …reward for coming to the dreaded weekly grocery trip.
What are some of the things your kids beg you to do?
