- ma-mow=lawn mower
- hoe=back hoe
Hoes are a new fascination, but are rapidly catching up with the ma-mows. Jacob has gotten to watch construction trucks with Grandma Burris twice in the last couple of weeks and he discovered the exciting world of backhoes. How enthralling! We have a truck book that he loves to look at (he thinks the farm tractor is a ma-mow) and he will find the backhoe and point at it, exclaiming, "Hoe! Hoe! Hoe! Hoe!" You must acknowledge him then too, or he'll just keep screaming out hoe incessantly.
And lastly, nains. Nains are not a new discovery, but it is a pleasure that has been growing and becoming more and more refined over the months. Nains are pretty cool, especially when you have someone to play nain with you. Little does he know, he is going to get his very own nain for Christmas from Grandma Ruth this year! How fun!
So, I hope the next time you are out and about and you spot a ma-mow, hoe, or nain, you can experience some degree of the delight Jacob finds in each one!
