When my oldest child was not quite two years old, we took him for a train ride on a real-life Thomas the Tank Engine.
This is going to be so much fun! I remember thinking the morning of the trip. What a wonderful family excursion I’ve planned! He is going to love it!
But he did not love it.
Quite the opposite, actually.
He spent most of the time whining to be held, then whining to be put down the moment I picked him up. He shied away from all the sights and sounds, but then cried when we took him away from the hustle and bustle.
He didn’t have any clue what he wanted, and we didn’t either.
That day my son was one unhappy child, which made me one frustrated mama. Come on, this was supposed to be FUN! I remember thinking.
After an hour and a half, we threw in the towel and headed to the car. We were all grouchy the rest of the day.
