Possible Unhealthy Fixation

ATTENTION, WORLD!!

ETHAN WOULD LIKE TO RIDE IN THE FAN TRUCK!



We just got home after running a few errands. On the way here, we passed two trucks hauling a mobile home. At a red light, we were parked right next to them, and could peek right into the windows. Much to Ethan's delight, they had ceiling fans!

OMG! Ceiling fans! In a truck even! The world simply does not have any more to offer - that is the pinnacle of awesomeness.

Since we saw the trucks, the conversation has run something like this:

Ethan: Mommy? I would like to ride in the fan truck.
Me: I know. That would be fun, wouldn't it?
Ethan: Yes. It would. (pause) Mommy? Mommy! MOMMY!!
Me (not testily at all, of course): Yes, Ethan.
Ethan: I would like to ride in the fan truck.
Me: I know. That would be fun, wouldn't it?
Ethan: Yes. It would. (pause) Mommy? I would like to ride in the fan truck.

And lather. And rinse. And repeat. For as long as it takes to make a mommy lose her everloving mind. And then do it some more.

He's having a hard time staying on task with eating his lunch today, so consumed with the fan truck are his thoughts. And we've already had one meltdown and time out, because....well, I don't know why. I never told him he couldn't ride the fan truck.

Naptime can't come soon enough.

It set a precedent...he does this with just about anything that strikes his fancy now. What a trying phase!
