Last week we took the boys to Toys R Us, and while playing at the train table that of course is not even as good as the one we have at home, but yet seems much more exciting to Colin, I noticed these Early Engineer trains.
So now I know what Graham will be getting for his birthday.
Pictured here is Rosie, who is one of my favorites because A) She is female, and B) She has such a mad crush on Thomas, which mostly seems to go unrequited.
But back to Graham. I'm struggling a little because Colin's obsession with Thomas has bled over to both of his parents, and we all LOVE Thomas. But what if Graham wants to like something else? Is a love of Thomas predestined? What if Graham decides to like something really lame, like Dora the Explorer, or super annoying, like The Wiggles?

My boy is big. I just weighed him, and he's 23 pounds. He's actually taller than he is chunky.
He's a baby; I think his little fat dimples are adorable. But tonight at Graeter's, I heard a dad point him out to his kids and call him a "hoss."
I don't know; I'm OK with someone he knows calling him a name that's meant to be a dimunitive. But a stranger calling him "hoss?" I'm not sure.
That's alright; by next year he will beat the CRAP out of anyone who calls him a name.
