Oh my goodness! Years and years and years of those trains at our house!! All my boys have outgrown them, but I have them boxed up neatly in the attic, waiting for eventual grandchildren!! The toy that lives forever.
When we adopted our son, then nearly 4, a family friend gave us a big box of trains and train tracks just like that. It was hardly ever out of use!Later we lent it to a new family and were grieved and shocked when they finally returned only about half of it, wrecked by glue and pens. I gave what was left of it away after that... I had to do some forgiveness work -- in fact writing this, maybe I still do!
Kris - These are definitely going in the attic for the grandkids. I loved your previous comment about the boxing gloves. If the two oldest weren't four years apart, we might be inclined to toss them in a ring to settle their differences.Christine - I am so sorry about your trains. That can be hard to get past. I love watching the kids play with real toys instead of the virtual ones. Meanwhile, I'm blogging!
