It was early in the morning two days ago and my little one and I had gone into the truckstop for supplies. As we passed by the toys and gifts on our way to the coolers he stopped to look at the toys. To my surprise this time it wasn't a truck or car that he had picked up, but a little plastic Longhorn piggy bank. He ran excitedly up to me carrying it.
Mummy Mummy!" he yelled excitedly.
"What is it?"
"It's a chockit piggy! Like George. Want it for my money. Please Mummy!"
What he like even more about this pig was that it was was brown (chocolate); his third favorite color next to pink and purple. I guess they are odd colors for a boy, but he chose them. I was so proud that he wanted to save his money that I went ahead and bought it for him.
Last night, we went outside and searched on the ground for some food for Chockit. We walked around the truckstop and looked on the ground for lost pennies and nickels. We found several and used them to feed Chockit which I am told by and expert that he absolutely loves. Another driver gave him a quarter which the little one was so excited about because it meant that he got to feed Chockit again.
I never thought that of all the toys my little one had been given that he would latch on to a piggy bank of all things. It will be interesting to see if the adventures of Chockit the pig continue.
