Traffic Jam

We had a traffic jam in our living room over the weekend. After a small discussion between the Punk, Daddy and myself, I decided to see just how many Hot Wheels (and Matchbox cars) I could find. I had bet they would stretch to the Punk's room, and Daddy said they'd only be around as tall as himself (5' 10").


I scrambled to get cars from the "car bin", toy box, living room toy basket, under the sofa, bed, and even the spares in Mommy's Bag. It was ON!


But... we were both wrong.


Using Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars only (no other small cars, boats, airplanes, helicopters, or train cars) we measured a total of 9 feet and 10 inches. The entire length of our living room. After a grand total count, we have at least 85 Hot Wheels and/or Matchbox cars.




Long, long line.



How did he get so many cars?



Driving under The Punk Bridge


Unusables - the cars that were not "allowed" into the traffic line.


What did we learn? Mommy can't estimate, and Daddy had no idea we had bought so many cars in only 3 and a half years!
