The problem with having a toddler who is obsessed with Thomas the Tank Engine (other than the fact that the Thomas trains and accessories are criminally expensive) is that the songs from the videos are so damn catchy. I find myself constantly humming and singing them at inappropriate moments. At work! In meetings! Driving in the car! Conversing with my husband!

Last week’s offering was:

“Whatever we do, we do it well
Because we all deciiiiiiiiiiiiiiide
To do each job we’re told to do
With care, with love, with priiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiide…”

(repeat ad nauseam)

This week, I’m blessed with the following little ditty stuck on an endless loop in my head:

“There’s no one quite like Emily
Friendly emerald Emily…”

That’s it! I know there are more lyrics but that’s all I can remember. It is currently cycling over, and over, and over, and over again in my head. Now, if the only food available to me was black licorice jelly beans and I was surrounded by people doing crossword puzzles in pencil, I would know I was in hell.

Thomas the Tank Engine rolling along. do do do doooo, do do do dooo.

Ugh. I know them all too. Unfortunately. Mason has been into Thomas for the past 2 years. Hopefully your Thomas phase won't last as long and nearly break the bank!

Too funny.

And, I 'm glad to hear they're finally naming trains after me. :)

I'm a full-blown adult, yet I still find myself in the clutch of a song now and then. The latest one is Bonnie Banks o' Loch Lomond:

Ye tak the high road, I tak the low road
I'd be in Scotland afore ye;
Me and my true love will never meet again,
By the bonnie, bonnie banks o' Loch Lomond.

(As you can see from my picture, I'm not even a highlander.)
