Dump truck

Playing a game of ‘guess which toy I am talking about’.

Little J: It is gray and has a green cab. It picks up rubbish and takes it to the recycling yard. It has 4 wheels.

Me: Your garbage truck.

Little J: You are absolutely right.

Me: Next.

Little J: OK, it dumps things like soil. It is big and yellow. It’s cab is blue and it has 3 wheels.

Me: I am not sure. None of your vehicles have 3 wheels.

Little J: All trucks have 3 wheels mommy. I did not say it has ONLY three wheels.

I have a new found respect for Einstein’s parents…
