Brody played with his car for exactly 2.3 minutes. I think they had more fun taking the batteries out of the extra battery pack. Evan got this little truck with a remote control – the kind where the controller was attached by a wire to the truck. He liked it so much, until Brody brought home the big truck.
I have figured out that things will hold the kids interest if they are interactive. The moment that Brody can’t have someone’s attention with what he’s doing is the moment he’ll quit.
So now the truck sits in his bedroom… I don’t even know where the controller is. I’ll most likely pack it away and take it out for him in 6 months.
I think that we will stick to arts and crafts from now on. Possibly a new book or two. Certainly, no more r/c trucks – because it’s just not worth it. Mind you, this is my opinion only – Daddy might have a different opinion. Not sure if we are counting his opinions just yet. heh
