My Grandson, the car thief

I need some more cars.


Today my grandson and I played “cars”.  His collection is huge, while I have only 6 cars, one of which is gone.

One by one we shared our cars. 

My little yellow and orange plastic cars (from the movie “Cars”) to his massive earth mover which he calls his "digger".  My bus to his blue car...  

Yet the little stinker tried to take them from me!

My bus, fire engine, light green VW —the little thief tried to take them all!

Fortunately his hand could not break through the computer screen.  My car, indeed.

Skype is a marvelous invention for a grandmother longing for her little guy in Switzerland.

At least he didn’t get my hot red convertible.  It is under the desk, hiding.

  2. I can just see his little arm stretching out through the screen to nab nannas cars. We have bags of toys for when the littles come and it never fails...they always take a few home with them. When they come again they look for the toys they took home and wonder why granndma doesn't still have them for them to play with.

    1. I keep toys in the cube footstools, and they always want to take some home. It is hard to say no, isn't.

  3. Grandkids are wonderful. Thank goodness the technology that brings them closer, but still it's no adequate substitute for having them there with you.

    I want some cars! I've been eying the ones they've started displaying in the supermarket where I usually shop.

  4. What a keeper. Don't show him that red convertible, though. He might play the cute card.

  6. That's really cute. Glad you could have a fun exchange with him. Even if he did try to steal all your cars.

    1. Can't blame him. My cars are pretty sharp. He says good-bye, tells me "I luck you" and blows me a kiss.

  7. And you 'luck him' too. And probably blow a barrage of kisses to the little car thief. Drat you Susan, I have melted into goo just reading this post.

  9. Hi Susan,

    That's really sweet If only I could reach through the computer screen and grab those toys :)

    Take care, proud grandmother.

    1. I don't think I can retrieve it from under the desk anyway.
