CJ’s imaginative play has really developed over the last few weeks. He use to just run the trains around the tracks and cause crashes etc but now he will now act out complete “stories” with his trains.

The stories and ideas are from all his Thomas books that we read to him – but it’s amazing the details he remembers.

His favourite “stories” are when one train is in trouble (a bridge has collapse, the tunnel exit is blocked, the track isn’t finished etc) and another train has to come along and rescue them. He spends ages getting the first train into the “trouble” just so he can complete the rescue.

And as I’m still not feeling the best we had plenty of time to read and act out more stories.
