A handsome lad

My oldest son was born April 8, 1961.
He spoke his first word – car -- while seated in his little car seat turning the built-in steering wheel. (Those were probably very dangerous car seats because they were not securely strapped in, but merely dangled over the backrest.) He loved to “drive” as he accompanied me around town.

He loved wheels and had many toy cars and trucks. His favorite book was The Great Big Book of Cars and Trucks. He was always fascinated by wheels. He had lots of bicycles. He would modify them and go motocross racing on them. He won frequently and his fellow racers concluded that his bikes were the reason. He sold his winning bikes and then bought parts and frames and put together new ones. He won races on those too.

He is still a handsome guy and he is still driving. He is a trucker.
Happy birthday, Robbie.

They say the profession you should choose is the activity you played as a child. I used to play teacher with my stuffed animals for hours...and now I teach ;o) Seems the same is true about your son and driving...hope he had a good birthday.

Isn't it fun to see how they grow up - you can see their personalities at such a young age.

Jane,

I've never heard that, but it is interesting. Do you suppose a child that played in the dirt and made a lot of mud pies could turn out to be a construction engineer or perhaps a cook? Funny thought.

Usually children do tend to have a passion for something. Not sure about their adult career options though.
Happy Birthday to Robbie.
