With this cold, windy weather recently, we have had to abandon our trips to the park and days in the garden and stay inside for much of the time. We have been loving getting the train set out and sitting together pushing the carriages around the track. He'll easily sit for an hour, pushing it around saying 'choo-choo' and as I watch him or join in with the fun. It's almost as if I'm imagining myself back in the 80s, as a toddler playing choo-choo trains with my brother and late Grandpa.
I don't know how watching Little One play with little wooden trains can jog so many memories, but they really do. I can remember building tracks around the room, in the garden and around the trees, and making all sorts of exciting villages and towns with lego for the train to go through. I hope that Little One will continue to get as much enjoyment from this simple little train set as I did as a child, and maybe look back in 30 years time and remember the fun times that he had playing with his Mummy, and with his first choo-choo train.
