My kid is OBSESSED with Thomas the train (aka Thomas the tank engine, aka Thomas and Friends). He loves Thomas and everything Thomas. He knows all the engines, their names and numbers, which ones pull coaches, which ones pull freight cars…

He plays with Thomas, watches Thomas on TV,  forces invites me to play Thomas with him, wears Thomas clothes, eats off Thomas dishes, reads Thomas books at bedtime…

It is all Thomas all.the.time.

And frankly, I don’t get it. Except for the fact that it’s all very British and proper. That part is cute. But the rest of it I just don’t get. Seriously. Try watching an episode. It’s actually kind of boring. But what do I know…I am just mom. Plus I’m a girl. I am convinced that all little boys between the ages of 1 and 5 have some level of love for Thomas. With my kid, it borders on insanity.

Anyway, he  has wanted snow-plow Thomas since CHRISTMAS. Has been BEGGING for it. They have one at school, and he desperately wants, no, NEEDS one at home.

His birthday is coming up on Wednesday. I guess I have to find snow-plow Thomas. I hope Target still has it in stock…
