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 “Oo-oooooo” (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 doesn’t quite enjoy the ride as much as actually running on, off, and around the train.  He’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 can’t take him since there’s a fairly low weight limit.  So, mommy gets train duty.  I have pupu to thank for all this since she’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.  I’ve been telling him… “No train ride.  Mommy doesn’t like the train ride.  She gets sick.”  This time, Caleb looks at me and says, “train.  Caleb.  myself.”  What?  You want to ride the train by yourself?  Caleb says, “Self.”  Ok… you sure, Caleb?  So, finally, I let him get on.  And, you know what?  He had fun!
