Adventures with Thomas {Giveaway}

Shari from Knit Wit by Shair shares her adventures with boys and Thomas…

I have 3 little boys, and while they all like playing together and being together, they each have different personalities. When going on an adventure, each one has a different idea of what an adventure means to them.

My oldest has always felt like an adventure had to be something on a massive scale. Anything short of a very long drive, and going to do very new things is not an adventure in his books. I always have to pull a sense of adventure out of him, and push him to make new friends.

For my middle son, EVERYTHING is an adventure! He has actually said to me before “Mommy let’s go on a wild and crazy adventure together! Let’s go to the living room!” That is approvimately 50 steps from where we were, and we “spotted” aliens as well as all sorts of bad guys. There was also a light saber fight where he needed to protect me. Nothing is a quiet adventure either. There is always running, jumping and all sorts of loud noises! But we are never bored, and it keeps me on my toes.

My youngest seems to think everything we do together is an adventure. Before he started school we used to go on adventures every day. To the mall, to get the mail, anything we did together -hand in hand – was an adventure. To this day, if we go for a family walk he will say “Mommy this is such a fun adventure”.


Since my youngest loves going on adventures, and anything can be an adventure if we want it to be, I like thinking of extra special things we can do just him and me. I try to make special time for each one, but with my youngest I will take him to go shopping with me. He loves it, since it is a treasure hunt! What will we find? Groceries are a lot more fun when you think of them as a treasure hunt, and a grand adventure! The key for me is to think of it as an adventure with him, not “let’s just get this done” and get home.

    My husband had an electric train set that I got for him one Christmas and it would go around on its tracks. Long story short, something happened and the train and its cars would not go any more.
    I brought it out for our little great grand5son who absolutely loved Thomas and, two years later, he stills brings out the tracks, fits them together, connects the engine and three little cars and goes around and around. It’s the first toy he usually plays with when he visits with his Nanny(our daughter).45
