Bryce - A Future Car Salesman or Race Car Driver?

Bryce has been demonstrating his keen powers of observation in recent weeks that has amazed Jason and me. Jason drives a Volkswagen which Bryce knows very well so I wasn't that surprised when he started seeing cars that were a similar color that Bryce would yell out, "That's Daddy's car!" I figured it was just the likeness of the color/make and that was it.

But then he started pointing out other Volkswagens that have no resemblence to Jason's car - all based on the fact that he knows the VW logo. Then, the other night, Jason was online looking at some random news website when Bryce came up and kept excitedly saying, "Bertie and Pop Pop's car! Bertie and Pop Pop's car!"

Jason had no idea what he was talking about since he was just reading a news story and there were no pictures of my parents or their car on the screen. Finally, after Bryce kept insisting on Bertie and Pop Pop's car, Jason noticed that up in the corner of the screen was a small Toyota logo. BINGO! My parents drive a Toyota. So based just on that little logo, Bryce knew that was the kind of car my parents drive and immediately was able to recall it.

Now I don't know about you, but I don't think I took much notice of a car's make until I was MUCH older. In fact, I still don't notice all the time. I knew Bryce loved cars, but I didn't realize how much he was absorbing when we are around them. Little kids are amazing, huh?
