Lord give me strength if Thomas also has a friend named Kelli.
Confession time, Innernets......
It began quite simply. Like many, many little boys throughout the history of little boys, our own little boy loves him a train or two. So last summer, I got Arun a simple 35 piece train. Which he loved. Then, I bought some spare track
No. Lordy, no.
Shortly before Easter, I came across a cute little Take Along Thomas Easter Train set and thought "Wow! Arun
Folks, it quickly unraveled from there. What I did not realize was that little train set is actually part of a much BIGGER set. Which led to my downfall.
Before I knew it, I was buying the roundhouse travel thingie, the zoo cars, the George car, an additional track expansion pack and then, the waterfall thingie. I think I have my compulsion in check now, but still - I would be a lying liar lying lyingly if I did not admit that I lust mightily for the Rescue Center and Carnival Adventure sets. .... sigh
The only saving grace is that Arun is not privy to any of this and does not even realize that Target is involved in all this Thomas Madness I have inflicted in his life. I purchase these things only when I am alone, so at least he is not begging for a new train every time we pay our tributes to the Altar of the Red Bullseye of Consumption.
