Anyone who knows anything about Liam knows that he is just a teeny tiny bit obsessed with diggers right now. And really, construction vehicles of any kind. It's amazing how many there are around when you start (or are forced) to pay attention. I thought maybe it was just in NYC but when we went to Florida this summer we saw several before we even arrived at our resort!
Actually, one of the things I love is that family, friends, and even clients and workshop participants have taken to sending us photos of diggers, or letting us know that they saw some diggers and thought of Liam!
Liam can spot a digger a mile away, and this blue one here is an old friend that we have oggled and drooled over many times. In fact, I'm pretty sure he's ridden on it before with Keith or one of our sitters, but that doesn't mean that getting to ride it again a few weeks ago wasn't a very special and exciting experience all over again... for both of us. There's nothing like seeing your own child wowed and excited beyond belief!
I must say, I do appreciate a digger driver who knows how much it means to these kids to get to ride one and will tolerate a camera wielding mom as well. Thank you digger driver!
