Oh really now?

My son spent a week with my parents recently. My mom told me this morning of a funny moment they shared on the way home.

They stopped off at Walmart and got a new toy for the 3 hour ride home. My son chose Barricade from the Transformers movie.

In case you aren't familiar with how these toys work, most often they are in car form when you buy them and they are super easy to transform in robot form. Getting them back into car form however is a bit of a challenge. You have to put some of the pieces in just the right place...anyway, he was trying really hard to transform him back into a car and was getting frustrated. My mom could hear his frustration building so she asked him if he needed help.

His response "NO! I can do it, you just concentrate on driving."

And, he's only 5.
