CARS, THE UNLIKELY OBSESSION

Stella had an amazing time in Idaho with her cousins. Heidi brought up some baby toys from the basement to keep her entertained...and she liked them just fine, but why would she want to play with some baby toys when she had access to her cousin's crazy large collection of Matchbox cars? From the moment she got her hands on one of them, she was hooked. On the second night she was obsessed. She went wild taking out a car from Cy's car case, putting it in her mouth, dropping it on the floor, and then grabbing another one from the case. She was only interested in the cars in the case, or the cars in Aunt Heidi's hand. She emptied the case several times. On top of that, she loved watching her cousins play with the cars. Over all, she must have felt like the luckiest baby alive. It was hilarious to watch.

P.S. There is a Blondie song that has a part about a man from Mars that eats cars. I couldn't stop singing the part in the song where it lists all the cars. Perhaps whoever wrote that song had a baby with a Matchbox car fetish.

Luckily they are about the cheapest toys you could ever consider buying a child. Soon she will have all the names down by heart if Cy and Catcher have anything to say about it.
