Don't tell the DOT, but I may have had a "little" help during my pre-trip and trip planning this afternoon. Poots wanted to know what EVERYTHING did lol.
So she got to see the main engine (she thought the hood was trying to get her when I opened it haha), check for leaking fuel, look at suspension parts, check the fifth wheel, trailer, lighting, and even tag along as I checked and tightened straps (she didn't care too much for the shrieking noise the wenches made, though). After tightening straps, everytime we'd walk past one "I think this one looks loose, Dad.". My little girl had me cracking up!
I had some good days off and was blessed enough to get to stop by the house one more night after picking up this current load. These kids and their beautiful mommy are my world (oh, and happy Mother's Day @shelby_and_lees_mama I love you) are the reason I do what I do. Can't wait to see them again in about 2 weeks for Poots' birthday. My big girl is going to be 5 (and she's getting registered for Kindergarten this next week, too!) Currently in the middle of nowhere in Nevada. 520 miles from here to my drop on Monday, so tomorrow will be a full day of driving.
They grow up too fast to start with, and even faster when you're on the road, it seems.
