Museum to Monster Trucks

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. 

*HUGS*  :)

Mommie, why aren't you going too? ;-)

We took Jack to a monster truck show when he was 6, and he LOVED it! It was super loud, though. All of us wore ear protectors. It was still loud even with the plugs!

It was four years ago and a time when Jack was really into the monster trucks, but he still talks about it even though he long ago moved on from that phase. I'm glad we went. It was definitely an experience. We actually saw Gravedigger roll over and crash! (Much excitement!)

I hope Austin and his dad have a great time. What a memory they will have to share together!

I think this is really great! You are prepared too. That's good! I have a good feeling that it will go well! Let us know how it goes!

I think it makes perfect sense to let him try things - especially with one of his parents around! And I'm a wee bit jealous that he's going to a monster truck rally and I am not. Yes... I like monster trucks. There, I said it.

Hi Debbie,

I have to stay home with my little girl and it gives Austin and his Daddy time together. :)

Nice to hear that Jack had a good time! That's good to hear. I am pretty sure the head set that Austin has will be pretty good. I have been before and don't really find it that loud, but then, I was at quite a few Heavy Metal concerts in my teens! LOL!

Sounds great! I am so glad you all had a good time and have great memories of it.

Thank you so much! I will blog and let everyone know how it went. Thanks again for your support, understanding and sharing experiences. I really appreciate it! *HUGS* :) Heather

Thanks Maven! :)

Maven, the monster trucks? No way! I just don't believe it! They are not very "green" you know. I am shocked and happy all at the same time, weird ... LOL!

Thanks hon!
