I know this boy very well. He is mine! I cannot believe that the next Bar Mitzvah I will be attending is that of my own son!
Ben has been into cars for as long as I can remember. When other kids were learning their ABCs and 123s, Ben was also learning his cars. From nearly the time he could recognize mama and dada, he could tell you that Grandma and Daddy drove a Nissan, Poppy drove a Lexus, and Mommy drove a Honda! He would look out the window and excitedly tell us whenever he saw a ‘Mommy’s car’. And then tell us the make and model.
His appreciation for Hot Wheels has grown from zooming them around our house to displaying some favorites from his collection in his room. And of course, he’s always enjoyed being around the full sized version of his model cars, where he was all smiles this evening.
