Can someone tell me why my son loves this thing so much???
Gotta say... he's not my favorite. However, I don't actually see anything inherently wrong with him, so I let him have his Thomas. But... he watches him in the morning, plays trains before school, plays trains when we get home, and then wants to sleep with Thomas at night. Yesterday, he woke up, and without lifting his head from his pillow said "My play trains... My play Thomas..."
Our neighbor gave us this little hand-me-down train set, and Dex has been having a BLAST. And he wants everyone else to play with him. "MOMMMMMY!!! TRAAAIIIINS! Come play, Mommy!! Come play TRAAAAIIINS!"
"Come on, Mommy! Come ON, Mommy!"
And as a side note, yes... I guess I am officially Mommy now instead of Momma. Dang you, Caillou.
