There used to be a time when our kids were deathly scared of the car wash. Each time we would announce that we were going to to the local wash, they would usually reply with -
[cue: hysterical crying]
That's even before we finished our sentence.
Now? They treat it as though it were a theme park ride.
I'm so excited!
[cue: squeals and giggles]
This, for just the prospect of taking mama's car to the local wash. It's really embarrassing.
Look mama your car is dirty - it needs a wash.
Really? I think we can wait until next week.
It's super yucky, Mama!
So, we put the kids in the car, drive about 10 minutes to a nearby location, and the kids are beside themselves with pure unadulterated bliss.
Yook at that!
It's a giant brush!
It is like this every single time.
Even though we go to the same venue at least every other week.
I think Disneyland needs to rethink their park rides.
It's taking a shower now!
Is your car having a bubble bath, Mama?
It looks like the ocean, Mama!
That's a giant blow dryer, Mama!
Yet's do that again, please!
Again, again, please!
Hey, if we can't get out to Disneyland this year, there's always the local car wash, right?
