Little kids and jeeps....

I came home from work and my wife told me "Hey, your son drew you a picture".

Now, my little dude is 4 years old and like most kids his age, well lets just say he's not exactly an artist. What I absolutely loved about this is that he was just hanging out and could have drawn anything, right? Spider man, the sun, a bug perhaps. Or, his go to favorite- swiggly lines which supposedly represent monkeys. But no. Not this time. It was like Picasso took possession of his right hand. Stain proof marker? Not so. It was his brush.

He hands it over and says "the Jeep in the middle is yours. Your friend Pete's is over here, and mine is over there. We are driving on the beach and having fun". If that doesnt sum up Jeeping, i dont know what does.

That's Great! It's a Jeep thing, and he already understands.

I think you can look forward to some great bonding moments with your little guy and the Jeep

A classic. Use UV resistant glass/plastic, and include his description, name and date. It will totally fade out in a few years if you don't block UV.

Yours is sitting a little low. I think he is telling you that you need a lift on that bad boy.

Haha.

I got a quadratec catalog and my 4 yr old is flipping through it. He comes over and says we need these. The tube doors. I asked why? He said so we can take the doors off and I wont fall out.

Priceless.

I've had my TJ for about a month now and honestly can say my kids love it as much as I do. They are 2, boy and 4, girl, my 2 year old son woke up in the middle of the night last week, screaming to go ride in the jeep! I look forward to the bonding with the both of them in the years to come!
