Our kids got a
Look and gasp and BEHOLD ITS GLORY!!!!!!!!
OK, it’s probably completely uninteresting to 99% of you guys. But put yourselves in the shoes of an (almost) 2 year old boy that’s obsessed with trains and vehicles…
From Chris and I – the table.
From my parents – set of tracks with drawbridge and tunnel.
From Chris’ parents – set of roundabout tracks with a ‘mud pit’.
Chris spent about 2 hours building and setting up the table, as well as putting the tracks together. He wanted to make it perfect for our little boys 😉 It was really interesting for me seeing it all come together… and though I hold zero interest in trains, I can fully understand why little kids would like this.
And you should’ve seen his face!!! He emerged from his room after his afternoon nap…. and his eyeballs nearly fell out of their sockets. He didn’t even know what to say 😉 Just made a BEELINE for the table and has not left it since.
From the moment he wakes up to the moment he goes to bed, it’s all about “play choo choo train! Choo choo train tracks”, and he does little else. I don’t even know if this is normal for a kid, but there you go 😉
