Now, the people who know me best will say I am a little overprotective (be quiet Maven! lol), true I would agree. I would rather be protective than not! Anyway, my head almost spun around 360 degrees when my husband said he wanted to take Austin to see the "Monster Spectacular" (monster truck show). My first thought, "NO WAY!". Well, after some discussion, I started to side with my husband and figured to give it a try.
I can only imagine what people reading this are thinking: "This is the woman who brought an OT to a museum trip last week and now she is sending her son to the monster trucks?". Well we got him protective ear wear! ;)
Okay, seriously, my husband and I feel we need to let Austin try things. How do we know how he will react if we don't? Monster trucks would not have been my first choice but he is a boy and does like motorcycles, snowmobiles, tractors, muscle cars, planes, etc. He doesn't really seemed to be bothered by those kinds of noises but monsters trucks are a whole new ballgame. My husband bought a pair of protective "ear muffs" (that is what I call them) for Austin. Safety first! We don't want him to hurt his ears.
It is a large arena where Austin will have to go to see the show, packed with people. He did well in the museum, so I take that as a good sign. The thing that has me most worried is the sheer size of these trucks! Not to mention the transforming car crushing robot! That thing is HUGE! Oh, I hope it goes well!
If Austin becomes the least upset, my husband will leave and bring him right home. That is where I will be, waiting and hoping that I see them come through the door with souveniers and not tears.
