“A Few of My Favorite Things”…………I love that song!
Thinking back, while growing up, my favorite toys prepared me for my future. I loved playing with toy tractors! My brother and I would play, for hours on end, outside in the sandbox or muddy tire tracks, at our farm. My boys also played with toy John Deere tractors. I also loved riding that hobby horse till I was to big for it. Oh, and baby animals………….they were my favorite! So sweet and loving. I grew up around baby cows and lambs.
Don’t get me wrong…………..I did have a couple of stuffed animals(which is what I originally was going to do the LO on), a Raggety Ann and Andy, Mrs. Beasley and a couple of basic Barbies but the big boy toys really drew me in!
When prompted to do a LO about my favorite things over at Child’s Play, I finally decided to go back to some of my baby photos. I also had much trouble coming up with a title…..even asked the “peeps” over at FB to help me. Finally “Future Farmers” came to me. The toys I played with yesterday is the lively hood of today. Yes, this girl has Big Boy Toys!!!!!
I was unable to make the deadline to get on the blog, due to my business, but I wanted to get it up so my friends could see the LO they helped inspire the title.
