Train engine

My husband had a marathon night of repairs last night with some excellent epoxy glue he picked up at WalMart. Among the repaired items is a large battery-operated train engine. The kids decided amongst themselves that it should go to C. D told her to take it to her room, but told her that she would need to clean up her bedroom before playing with the train. He also cautioned her about not exhausting the batteries. (D is 3.)

The kids are now closeted in C's room. C asked me for her old pink Pooh blanket and disappeared into her room, closing the door shyly but pointedly behind her. I briefly had a glimpse of a basket, the sparkly red dragon, and the pink doll sleeper as the door closed.
