We Found More Trains!

In case ya'll didn't know, Christian LOVES trains.  And happily, we found a new train place in Phoenix to take Christian to.

Waiting with Papa for the train to arrive.

 Getting on board!

Anxiety starts to kick in when Christian sees Mommy won't be coming along for the ride. 

Christian decided the train wasn't for him.
Papa still wanted to ride the train, so Christian and I ventured off to the model train exhibit.

Papa returned from his exciting train ride (which broke down along the ride,
so I'm glad Christian didn't go after all.  It was a hot day).   We went outside to look at a larger model train.
We gave Christian a few minutes of doing that and then told him it was time to go.
WHOOOO LAWDY!   The fit Christian had ... unbelievable!

Papa's awesome solution?   On-site time out for three minutes.  
It worked ... Christian sat there and calmed down.

Tuesday Giggles

Christian just cracks me up these days.  Whenever he says something funny, I try to remember it so I can share with ya''ll ... and I'm typically unsuccessful.

Here are a couple of funny statements from the past 24 hours:

Yesterday, I was getting Christian undressed and was trying to get him to help out.   I said, "Take off your underwear, please."  He replied in a very whiny voice, "No, you do it."   I said, "Christian, please take off your underwear like a big boy."   His reply, in that same very whiny voice, "I'm not a big boy ... I"m a little girl."  I guess that was the best excuse he could come up with to not get undressed.

This morning, I walked into his room and said, "Good morning!"   He cheerfully replied, "Good morning, mother dear!"

Mother dear?   Ha ha!  Haven't heard that one before!

Auntie Liz Comes a Calling

Today Jonathan departed for a week in Southern California.   Happily, Auntie Liz stopped by to keep us company.  Thanks, Auntie!
