Thomas and His Friends

Middle has a new morning routine. He's not completely competent with his cereal spoon and gets frustrated (meaning whiny) if he dribbles cereal and/or milk on the table and/or himself. So every morning, Middle expectantly sits at the table with his bowl of Apple Jacks and either Hubby or I have to spoon feed him his cereal. But wait! It's not that simple. As we're bringing the spoon to his lips, we have to tell him WHO that bite is....meaning which Thomas the Tank Engine train is on its way to his lips. But wait again! There's more....we can't repeat the same train twice in one sitting.

All this makes for a draining morning routine as we try to come up with obscure Thomas the Train engine names. Here comes Thomas, Henry, Percy, James, Spencer, Molly, Culdee, Mike, Donald, Douglas, Bill, Ben, Annie, Clarabel, Gordon, Edward, Bertie the Bus, Harold the Helicopter, Murdoch, Rheneas, Mike, George, Arthur, Fergus, Lady, Elizabeth, Emily, Trevor, Salty, Toby!

See what I mean? So I guess I don't really need to explain why I've begun to put less and less cereal in Middle's bowl each morning....
