I think I've mentioned before that Jeb is obsessed with trains, specifically Thomas the Tank Engine.
If you love Thomas, too, please do not be offended by my next statement. Here it comes.... I would rather watch The Wiggles than Thomas. Oh yeah. I just said that. There's just something about how the trains' and people's mouths don't move when they talk. It's unnatural. And that theme song. Honest to goodness, every time I hear it, I shudder. Again, I apologize if you are a Thomas lover. It's nothing personal.
But for now, I have a boy who loves trains. In fact, when I took him to school this morning, he had one stuffed in each pocket. So, a few weekends ago, Matt and I decided to take him for a ride on a real train. The little guy was absolutely beside himself. I think the facial expressions say it all.
The boy LOVED it and talks about his train ride every day. I'm so glad to have been able to take him but am afraid it has only intensified his train fixation. Sigh.
I remember my girls really liking Dora the Explorer, but their fanaticism never reached the heights Jeb has with his Thomas. What about you? Are your kids obsessed with anything at the moment?
