Just before the boys hit two, something clicked. Boom, thomas the train was the coolest thing ever, and they very quickly became obsessed. It was like someone flipped the little boy mode switch on. Everything was about thomas, and anywhere they saw that iconic blue tank engine, it required pointing it out and chattering about thomas.
We fueled the passion a bit by letting them watch a bit more TV, and the boys received lots of thomas stuff for their birthday and christmas. Little cars, shirts, undies, etc. Lots of thomas in our house, but we try and keep it reasonable.
When we found out that Thomas the Tank Engine has a touring full size car, train ride and a day of activities, we knew it would be a hit. Nama & Papa took the boys for their first train ride, and to meet thomas. It was a long drive, but the boys loved it.
Last week Ezra and I were busy looking for a missing toy and Noah found a tub of lotion and got a spoon from the kitchen. Luckily he had opened it on the tile, so when Ez and I wondered upon him I let Ez join in for a bit.
Here is a short video of Ez skating on the lotion. He did really good and didn’t fall once. (He must have his daddy’s balance!) Wish I would have started taping earlier.
The boys love to pretend to put on makeup. One of the things I personally love about this age is no gender roles are established in their minds. Whatever mommy does is pretty cool to them. I don’t mind them pretending to put on makeup, I know they will grow out of it eventually. It doesn’t make them any less of a man.
Today while I was dusting in our bedroom, the boys snuck into our bathroom and shut the door. I let them be for a few minutes before I checked on them. The only thing they had gotten out was my makeup and were busy putting it on. I let them, and of course, I took pictures.
