Teach 'em while they're young

I was leaving the bank today and merged in behind another Jeep and stopped at a light. There were two women in the front seat and a little girl in the backseat, in a carseat, that couldn't have been more then 3yrs old.

The girl started pointing at my Jeep and waving at me

I was amused and waved back at her. The women in the front turned to see this and they laughed and joined in with a wave.

Awwwww. Were the women in the front seats hot? MILF?

But seriously, that story sounds cool.

Maybe you just had a booger hanging out of your nose and she wanted to eat it.

Yeah, I get the kids looking at mine when I'm running no doors. They get a kick out of it. Kids are so easily amused

Reminds me of my 5 year old son. Driving him around in the Jeep topless is always a trip. I can't count the number of times he has started up a conversation with the car next to us at a light. The best was..."Hey, nice motorcycle you have. My mom won't let my Dad buy one!"

Seems like most kids are amused by my CJ. You just don't see Jeeps as often as suv's and trucks so they stand out mush more to kids, that and hot rods.

I was at a red light a few months ago and a young boy turned his head and noticed my Jeep and goes, "Dad! You gotta do that to your Jeep too!"

Lets face it... a Jeep IS a toy. No doors & no top appeals to kids and those adults who refuse to grow up.

Every time a little kid admires my Jeep I enjoy it and my girlfriend calls me a child.

A few days ago my son (10) and I were coming out of the store and found a nice lifted jeep parked next to mine. The owner of that jeep was walking behind me but I didnt know it. When we got in, my son leans over me and yells to him " Us Jeep guys gotta stick together!"

*proud dad moment*

One of the things that did not occur to me when we bought the Jeep was the effect it would have on my younger son. At 15 he is developing a real appreciation for the out doors.

Last weekend when we went out on a couple trails, he made a comment to my friend that came along:

"The Jeep has opened up so many new things for us, new places to go and new adventures to have"

As if don't enough reasons to love this Jeep, they just keep on coming.

When I travel across-state I only drive about 60mph. I always get rubber necks from cars with kids in them.

Agreed. In reality it is the most impractical vehicle on the road. Off the road is a different matter though.

My little one loves to wave and points out jeeps coming down the road, she's 4. My eldest (7) loves the top down, the rest she doesn't seem to care about.

Best time is when i get it muddy and pick her up from daycare. She will walk out and say "who did this" it just cracks me up everytime. Then she says let's go mudding.


Kids and jeeps are great. So are dads that just dont want to grow up!
