on the farm


The night of Liam's birthday, my dad and mom called to wish him a happy birthday. When we were getting ready to hang up, my dad said, "I'll see you in a few days, buddy." As soon as we hung up, Liam started asking for his tractor jacket (a John Deere jacket my dad got him for Christmas), which we had to wash because it's one of his favorites and he wears it all the time.

When my dad offered to take Liam along to ride in his tractor the morning of Liam's birthday party, I had to let him ride along. Liam loves tractors, and he's been even more obsessed in the past week, saying things like "My John Deere!" and "Nothing runs like a Deere." As one of my coworkers said, I might just raise a farm boy yet.
