Let's just say that our four year old LOVES CARS, especially cars with eyes = Lightning McQueen, Sally, Doc Hudson, you get the drift! His room is decked out in CARS gear (which I was hesitant to do at first b/c of my dislike of themed rooms, especially character themes) and he seriously wanted us to name his baby brother after a very important CARS character played by Larry the Cable Guy. He told everybody he wanted his little brother's name to be Gabriel "Mater"! Anyhow the little story I was told the other day was this. My son got in trouble at his child care center for putting his hands on another child and hitting so he was taken to the front office. There he sat with one of the directors, a thirty something woman and the co-owner, a fifty year old man. The two discussed CARS with my son to try and help him settle down and as upfront as possible, he told the man that he reminded him of Tow Mater because he was old and rusty. They both sat there and the woman said they laughed so hard she was crying. Kids just say what ever comes to mind!
On that note I wanted to do a little something special for our son since the next CARS movie is coming out towards the end of this week. I really want this movie to be an event for him. He's even more excited now with the addition of this easy project of window flags!
Here they are and it adds a little character to the room. Get it?!?!? He loves it and they're just a fun layer to the simple navy curtain.
