Eager Beaver

You know you’re in for a great story when your 5 year (and 5 day) old comes running to your bed at 6:30 in the morning asking to do the dream question for your blog. Bang LOVES that question. Hence, it has become a staple of the “10 Questions I Ask My Kids” on Thursday. But today is only Wednesday, so you’ll have to wait until tomorrow to find out what he dreamt.

Sorry not sorry.

Tomorrow will fun. I found some science questions to ask the kids. You will read tomorrow how they view the world. You will find out truth to such things as rainbows and the sun’s heat and why magnets stick to each other. All science related. If you aren’t enlightened you will at least be enlaughened (that’s a word now).

As you probably know, a bunch of driveways were being repaved last week. The gravel was laid and rolled and all was ready for the paver. We just needed clear weather. Both showed up Monday and “The Excavator Spectator” was on high alert. He became the paver spectator. Too bad he had school! After school though? He had the same reaction.


Unfortunately, I didn’t get a picture of him watching the paver in our driveway. He sat on our front step and watched the whole thing.

*Funny story: The paver laid a thin strip of asphalt about a 1/3 of the way down our driveway then stopped. The paver driver parked his machine. DW asked what was up. He told her, “They gave us enough asphalt to do the 10 driveways and we just ran out.” Naturally, DW was a bit confused (and bit pissed that they ran out of asphalt). Then she clued in that he was just kidding and they had a good laugh. 


Front row seats!

That was our big excitement over the last few days… watching the driveways get paved. Be prepared for all the paving questions to be answered this Friday in the next issue of “Go Ask Your Father”.

  1. Nothing greater like a new paved pavement! And pavement watcher to boot. That’d be a hoot if they really ran out budget for asphalt and stop right in the midst of it. 😜 Looking forward to the questions and being enlaughened. (Auto correct has a hard time with that word. :p)

  2. The boys and I were riding bikes on our street the other day and an elderly neighbor came out to let me know she’s having a new well drilled this week, and there will be heavy equipment around. I think she intended to warn me to be extra careful with the boys on bikes, but I took it as a divine promise of good things to come:

    Little boys + heavy equipment spectating = my butt in a lawn chair with a fruity drink and Big Magic (my latest read).

    Bring it!

    Driveway looks great, BTW.

  3. Machines! Even little girls like them. When The Child was an actual child, I used to take her out on the street, where she would be transfixed by anything mechanical, especially trucks, from garbage truck (fascinating!) to any big truck that was backing up (most excellent backing-up beeping). Thanks for the memories!
