A dozen from early May: two from the Chattanooga Choo Choo, three from Day Out with Thomas, four from his birthday celebration at school (given early because Baybay’s birthday is in August), and three of his sand boat at Mimi and Grandpa’s.

Day Out with Thomas

Baybay had a good time this weekend but was a royal pain in the butt for Mama and me. Our little buddy was obstinate, irritable, contrary, and demanding. I believe he was over-stimulated and tired, and I don’t know how those variables can be improved for our upcoming Disney vacation.

Max seemed like he enjoyed what we were doing, but he was wound up so tightly and was difficult to contain. Instead of exhibiting affection and warmth, he was aggressive and selfish.

And there were a bazillion more just like that at Day Out with Thomas. Kids were lying down on the asphalt—kicking, crying, and screaming—while parents threatened going to their cars, leaving, and spankings.

I don’t even want to analyze why my little buddy behaved the way he did this weekend. I’m just glad its over.

If our Disney vacation is as intensely negative as this weekend’s overnight trip to Chattanooga, Mama and I won’t make it back.

On a positive note, Max recognized his name in a TitleMax sign on our way home and pointed it out to us.

To a better tomorrow…

Today’s been another big day for Maxipoo. When we got up we got ready to head to Chattanooga to stay at the Chattanooga Choo Choo. We’re here for Day Out with Thomas, and we’re going to ride Sodor’s number-one tank engine tomorrow. Our ride up here was rather short. We stopped for a late lunch and then made it around 4:00 pm.

Max has been so over-stimulated and irritable. He’s never good when his schedule changes. Jaddie and I have thought several times that we should head back to Buford.

When we got in our room Max picked up the phone and said, “Grandpa, I come see you. Then I go see Granny.” We thought that was cute.

We are staying in a Victorian passenger coach. We’re not sure what to think. It’s old-timey and a little rickey, but Max thinks it’s cool and that’s what matters.

One thing the Chattanooga Choo Choo has is a nice pool. We three enjoyed it. That was nice and refreshing.

Tonight we had dinner in a dining car. That was pretty cool. We had some yummy pizza. After dinner Max and I played in the gardens. They had a beautiful gazebo, a climb-on locomotive, and plenty of places for a three-year-old to run.

We’re all about to head to Sleepytown in our passenger coach and dream about riding Thomas tomorrow.
