Shake, Shake, Shake

Ian finally received his replacement Thomas engines after this summer’s recall. In appreciation for his patience, and as an apology for distributing poisoned slow coaches, RC2 Corp. sent Ian new additions to his collection: two repair vehicles, one with a cherry-picker and one with a search light.

He was playing with them in the kitchen this morning, while I made our lunches. I started singing (like I do), with KC and the Sunshine Band as my inspiration:

‘Ian Philip…Ian Philip…has some new trains! Has some new trains!’

To which he replied:

‘I have trains! But they’re not trains! They are tru-ucks! They are tru-ucks!’

Later, on the way to his grandparents’, Ian made up a song about winter to the tune of All for the Best, from Godspell.

Anyone have the number for Wayne Brady’s agent?

    Aww, what a clever little ill rhyme-sayer! :D

    I returned my son’s lead-infested train to barnes and noble where I bought it and I was allowed to choose a replacement. I chose the cherry picker and spot light set and my son can’t stop turning that light on.

    [Confession: I can’t stop playing with it, either.]
