Owen and Thomas

My father took this picture of Owen watching his beloved Thomas the Train at Martha’s house, and it is a scene that is repeated often in our own.  He seems to have gotten tired of Peppa Pig and is now Thomas all the time, with the occasional side order of Curious George.

I did start a new “limited TV” rule recently though, as what with the cold weather and all, he had started watching way too much of it.  I was clued in to this over-indulgence when several times Owen half woke up in the middle of the night and cried out, “More George!” and then rolled over and went back to sleep.  If you are sleep-talking demands for television shows, than hello!  We have a problem.

He also seems to have developed a crush on one of the female trains, "Emily," and will get all shy when she is on the screen.  He can tell you which train does which job, and also knows who is grumpy and who is nice and who is mean, etc.  There's an Owen on the show -- a quarry elevator, and he likes that.  There's also an Elizabeth on a few episodes -- a very old lorry!  Fitting....
