Free Style Writing Challenge-The Train Journey

Toot Toot! They’re two they’re four they’re six they’re eight! My train journey begins every morning with “Thomas, You’re the Leader”. Bust my Buffers, Cinders and Ashes! My 3 year old son is obsessed with Thomas the Train (and Mickey Mouse too but he is on a Thomas kick right now). He sings the Thomas The Leader song in the middle of the night in his sleep. I wake up every morning listening to him sing the Thomas song. I walk around the house singing the Thomas song. I even have it in the car for him to listen to and now I have a dance that goes with it.

We have actually taken him on the Thomas the Train ride that happens every year but he was young and doesn’t remember it as well. I keep trying to find the train ride again so I can take him but if it doesn’t remind me I forget about it. I think he would love it better this time.

I haven’t been on a train journey (except for Thomas) since I visited New York. I don’t know if the subway counts but quite a few years back I went to a friend’s house on Long Island and had to take the train. As I came back into Brooklyn, I was daydreaming and thought we were at the last stop.
