A certain young man received a belated joint birthday present from his grandmas yesterday. We’ve all been scouring the neighborhood parent listservs and Craigslist for the past few months looking for a good deal on a train table, and my mom hit the jackpot last week when she found an actual Thomas table for a really great price. Needless to say, Milo has been over the moon with joy.
I love hearing his imaginary play with the trains. Since Matt is away at the Toronto Film Festival for the next week, there are lots of trains having conversations like, “Come on, ‘boose, we go see Daddy. Daddy To’nto. Oh no! Help help! Go over mountain. We go city. Have fun!” I’m mostly just hoping that this table helps keep him occupied during the long winter (indoor) months ahead of us.
