Latest Obsession

It's not mine. It's The Bee this time. And it's Thomas. Otherwise known as Toot Toots. With a strong emphasis on the 'ts' at the end.
Oddly though, he doesn't recognize him as a train. He is a bus. Or simply toot toots. Go figure.
My mom brought the boys a couple of dvd's which came with cute little toy engines a couple of weeks ago.
I was happy with the newly added variety to our viewing, and The Bug likes them well enough, but it is The Bee who LOOOOOVES them. It's probably a good thing that they are both not totally obsessed about the very same thing. I don't think I could handle it. The Bee will even choose playing with his train engine over eating his dinner. Now that is saying something.

My grandpa was an avid train enthusiast his whole life. He was also very mischevious and would spend hours playing games and being silly with his grandkids. My grandpa passed away several years ago, but I think he and my boys would have been the best of friends.

In the meantime, we will have to go check out the big (little) train this summer at Heritage Park. I suspect it will be a big hit.

p.s. The Thomas show at the park is completely sold out. Just our luck!

It's a sweet feeling/thought to know he would have loved & enjoyed them...and probably does from afar...you know?
Sold out already? I just read about it yesterday! Until next time, start singing..."they're 2, they're 4, they're 6 they're 8 shunting trucks & hauling freight..." W dances and dances when he hears the Thomas song. It's too cute.

Sung to I'm a little green frog

"I'm a little red train
going down the track
a little red train
going forth and back
i travel all day going round and round
taking goods from town to town
i'm a little red train
going down the track
chug, chug, chug

E is also obsessed with trains but interesting enough not with Thomas. There are a lot of trains that go through here and so there are plenty of opportunities for her to point them out and believe me she does!

Will isn't too alert yet, but we'll hit trains soon enough!
