Isaac loves the movie Cars. When Dylan was young we introduced him to various animated movies but after awhile we thought it would be best for him to watch more educational and less violent things like Wiggles, Peep and the Big Wide World, Thomas the Tank Engine, Bob the Builder, Teletubbies, etc. Dylan still remembers Nemo, The Incredibles, Toy Story 1 and 2 and Monsters Inc. but he never asked to watch them. Isaac never saw any of them.
Recently though at a book fair Dylan bought a Disney Pixar book that had stories from Ratotouille, Nemo, Cars, Toy Story and Monsters Inc. I could tell that Isaac was becoming more and more interested in Cars so when I noticed a friend had the DVD I asked to borrow it.
Since then not a day goes by when Isaac says “I want to watch Cars.” Some days Isaac will watch it three times. It is a good movie because it’s about friendship and not violent. The dialogue is easy for the boys to understand and the boys love the racing scenes and Dylan likes singing “Life is a Highway.”
Now when the boys start watching the movie Isaac yells out “Dylan let’s race!” Then the two of them run laps around the house pretending they are cars on a race track. Sometimes they even make pit stops to get new tires and gas. It’s a good way for them to get exercise.
Now when we are driving Isaac likes to ask “Are we going fast or slow?” Apparently no one told him that his dad always drives slow.
Dylan accompanied Ji Seon to Toys R Us while Isaac and Victoria were napping. Instead of asking for toys for himself Dylan was really excited about getting the tricycle for Isaac.
