Yes, Caleb likes trains. But this mommy has held off buying him any. Whenever he sees the Metro line off the freeway, I always get the joy of hearing â€œOo-ooooooâ€ (aka, choo-choo) screamed at Caris and me.
On the rare occasion that I go to the mall, Caleb loves the train ride. Well, he loves watching it. He always wants to go on, but then doesnâ€™t quite enjoy the ride as much as actually running on, off, and around the train. Heâ€™s always been too small/young to go on the train by himself, so this mommy has had to go with him. I hate this train ride. Caleb wants to get on so badly, but then he wants to get off before the ride is done. And I get motion sick on things that go round and round and round and round. This train goes around the track at least 20 times. Aiyah! Chris canâ€™t take him since thereâ€™s a fairly low weight limit. So, mommy gets train duty. I have pupu to thank for all this since sheâ€™s the one who introduced Caleb to the train and bought him 20 train ride tickets.
Ok, so I bring all this up because this past week, Caleb sees the train. Iâ€™ve been telling himâ€¦ â€œNo train ride. Mommy doesnâ€™t like the train ride. She gets sick.â€ This time, Caleb looks at me and says, â€œtrain. Caleb. myself.â€ What? You want to ride the train by yourself? Caleb says, â€œSelf.â€ Okâ€¦ you sure, Caleb? So, finally, I let him get on. And, you know what? He had fun!
