I’ve had some strange looks over the last week whenever I tell someone that we were going to Touch-A-Truck this weekend. For some reason, there were a LOT of people asking me what I was doing this weekend. So, I had to explain what it is to each of them.
First of all, Mothercraft did a great job putting this really fabulous event together. I can only imagine the logistics that went into getting all of those vehicles and people together all at once. And the vehicle operators were great with the kids - even my shy guy.
We didn’t last long at Touch-A-Truck this year. The heat of the day and all the stimulation proved to be more than Brandon could handle for more than an hour. Considering his age (and how hot it was), I think he did really well. Who cares if I will never regain use of my shoulder again after carrying him everywhere. ;)
I’m already looking forward to this happening again next year so I can see how Brandon’s reactions to it will change. He didn’t seem bothered by the noise - and there was quite a bit of noise from all the horns and sirens. But lately we’ve noticed that he doesn’t like crowds too much. I hope it will be less intimidating for him next year!
