Today at Grandma’s house, Emma and I were playing with a toy train.  She was pulling it along, saying “choo choo”, when we heard off in the distance, the sound of a real train going “choo choo”!  She stopped right away, jumped up, and tried to figure out where it was coming from.  Then, she ran to the front door and just stood there, looking out the window for several minutes.  It made me laugh out loud to imagine a train puffing down our street…and then, I remembered the movie Polar Express.  Isn’t it great to have a child’s mind?!
