Even Traffic Seems Much Cooler Through Her Eyes

This morning we were sitting in traffic on the way to preschool.traffic on the beltway 495

“Look Mommy! We’re in a car parade!”

I have to say that this is a much healthier way to look at it. It really takes the stress out of a traffic jam.

I don’t think the lady wildly gesturing in the car behind us knew that it was a parade. Or maybe she was just really bad at the “queen wave” (You know, wrist, wrist, elbow, elbow).

  1. Maybe the lady behind you was an adept multi-tasker and was just getting in her daily calisthenics . (Or practicing her drum majorette routine for the parade.)

  2. Ahhhh, the wisdom of the pink one.

  3. I thought that the Queen wave was elbow, elbow, wrist, wrist, wrist.

    Clearly the reason that people do not stop when they see me and bow down is because I’ve been doing the wave backwards!

  4. Children have such a wonderful way of seeing things. Too bad we grow up and get all bitter and twisted.

  5. This one will stay with me forever. Give her a high-five from me… Too funny.

  6. HAHA! That’s too cute. I’ll have to remember that tomorrow morning when I’m in the “car parade”. 😉

  7. What a great way of thinking of it! I’m visiting a friend in a much bigger city than where I’m used to tomorrow – I think I’ll keep that in mind!

  8. I *LOVE* that.

  9. That is perfection! I wish for your daughter a big ol’ stretch convertible wherein she can perch prettily atop the backseat and show that wave-challenged reluctant float-driver a thing or two about ladylike parade participation!

  10. Rosie gets excited when there is traffic because then “we gotta wait our turn.” Interesting that she is OK waiting our turn in a car, but not when it comes to sharing the computer with her friends at day care.

  11. OMG, that is SO cute.

  12. That is so cute!

    I’m going to think of that every time I’m stuck in traffic and my blood pressure starts rising!

  13. I do believe that has to be the best description of a traffic jam I’ve ever heard! I’ll have to remember that the next time I’m stuck in traffic. :)
