We went on vacation with some friends over Fall Break. The little boy of the family we went with had trains, specifially Thomas and Percy.
Cooper discovered Noah's stash of trains and without a doubt planned on keeping both of them had no one else been around. At night we had to take Percy away so Noah could have him to sleep with, I thought we were going to have to find a Wal-Mart, which would was over 2 hours away, to buy a replacement so the boy would stop crying. It was insane! I have never seen him act this crazy about something before, well, as long as you don't count when he found Noah's Woody Doll.
Sidenote: I realized my kids don't have toys.
Sidenote: Christmas will be better this year kids, mom promises. I will buy you toys.
The Monday we were home, I took Cooper to Wal-Mart and bought the boy a train. James, he's vain but lots of fun.
James leaves Cooper's side only for church and school. I think Coop might have forgotten how to use his fingers because his hands are always taken with James and James' car that attaches via a magnet. (It's a two piece deal.) To say he is in love with trains would be an understatement. He will play all by himself, pushing his James back and forth making train noises, I'm not sure how to spell the noise he makes, and yelling, "Alllll aboard!!"
Matt and I check on him before we go to bed. There are many nights when Coop has James in a death grip or is sleeping on top of him.
Soooo needless to say, Cooper is getting Thomas stuff for Christmas. Thanks for making my job easy buddy.
