Another Set of Multiples?

Thomas the Twin Engine has joined our house of multiples.

Stranger: "Do twins run in your family?"

Me: "Indeed they do!  They run on batteries!" 




A fellow blog reader (and neighbor), Kim saw our that our Thomas I was being threatened by fierce competition, and brought over Thomas II, that her son had outgrown.  We hardly ever have 4 of anything, but 2 is a perfect compromise.  Enough to learn to share, but enough to keep the house happy.

Speaking of happy, doesn’t Thomas look like a jolly train?

    What an awesome friend to cause such happiness! Thomas is a great kid thing. KWIM? Boys and girls alike love him…even moms.

  7. That is great that you now have twins…..trains that is! Do all the boys love Thomas? Or do some like him more than others.

    Oh how perfect! That was so sweet of your neighbor!

    Awww! 2 is good. 2 play and 2 watch. :o)

  10. Thomas does look like a jolly train, but if you ask Fox, he’ll tell you that Thomas is a cheeky little train…it kills me how much he picks up just from watching the DVD’s at Granny’s house!

  11. Welcome to the world of Thomas the Train. Even tho I am 76, I have a Thomas table in my garage completely set up with tracks, engines, and all of the stuff that goes with it. I leave it up for visiting children, since my grandson has out grown it. Thomas has provided hours and hours of fun at our house! I know he will at your, also!

  12. Rachel says:

    We went through a Thomas phase too!!! :o) Train table and all… It’s a fun one. :o)

  13. Laura says:

    What a nice friend. I can imagine that having a second train really helps!

    I’m sure having 2 is a relief! I have 2 girls (5 and 2 1/2) and we frequently get 2 of the same Beanie Baby, doll, etc. to avoid the fighs. I can’t imagine what it would be like with 4!

    Your boys are precious!

  15. How nice of your neighbor…I’m so glad you have 2 now! 🙂

  16. That’s great!! What a special treat!

  18. What a wonderful friend! Thomas looks SO happy! Very cute!

  20. Too cute!

    Jen, do you mind letting me know who it was again that did your blog design for you? I wanted to try and get mine done, too.

    Way to go friendly neighbor Kim! I was wondering how long 1 thomas would be able to hold up to those boys!! Two will stand a better chance. 🙂

    Great job getting the 2nd one, I know it was a gift, but if not, you needed to go out and pay $30 for the 2nd one. My twins have 1, and many many evenings I have thought they need two. Now they are into everything so there is plenty of things (outside-wise) that they don’t fight over Thomas. I must add, org. there is a back black push thing for it — it does not work.
