I have been sitting at Barnes & Noble for the last 2 hours and 30 minutes…and counting.
Maddy loves the train table. Heck, I love the train table. Anything that can keep a 2 year old entertained for that long is deserving of love. She has circled the table pushing whichever train she ends up with around and around and around the track without getting bored.
I feel lucky that the train table lives in a bookstore and not somewhere totally boring and lame like an auto parts store or a Radio Shack. At least in a book store there is endless reading material and free wifi for me.
Lets be honest though, if Maddy wanted to play with the trains and I had to be bored for hours on end in order for her to have her fill, I’d do it. I’d go sit or stand in the motor oil aisle or next to the speaker wire and let her have her fun because lets face it, I kinda like her and seeing her happy and having fun is pretty darn great. Besides she hangs out in a cart or her stroller so I can try on clothes or grocery shop so I guess I owe her.
Give and take right? Maddy and I give and take and like the trains she pushes along the tracks, our love goes around and around and around in a never ending loop.
