Taking Train



These pictures are from few months ago. They show bridges and train station along a wooden train tracks. I let my kid play by himself for longer time then usually. Until then I didn't know I can get such achievements from him just by letting him be by himself. Until then I had an idea that I should spent my free time with him as much as I could. But apparently it is not like that. He can immerse in his little kind of unstructured playing while I am sitting on the sofa staring out of the window, thinking about the "immortality of a beetle."

Ha, ha, I wanted to be kind of mysterious. In my language another way to say to contemplate about the sense of life.

That's a nice stage, when you finally have a little time to ponder over the immortality of a beetle!

I love it. My sons had a train set just like that when they were little. They used to make these huge structures using the train sets, leggo and whatever else they could get their hands on.

We are not in that stage yet, although sometimes he can play alone or work together with me (housework) for maybe 15 minutes. I have recently discovered however that I can knit at the same time we play and that is well, enough for me :)
