Of Trains And Colours

"thomas...he's the cheeky one"

in amir's simple eyes, he's thomas. he's the one in charge, he's the one in the front line, he's the leader (that's why he's also mickey mouse and harry potter). he always has something nice to say to everyone, he's the one who protects everyone (like thomas did in percy and the spaceship). he's also anything that's blue. if there's a character in blue, its amir. if there's a blue car, its amir. how cheeky is this...

asyraf is obviously thomas' best friend, percy. asyraf is like percy, very protective of his things (like when harold was asked to deliver mails), he hates people disturbing him (like when he pulled cranky the crane). anything green, amir would associate with asyraf. even when he's watching the show, he would act as though they really are the trains. if percy gets into trouble, amir would say...percy asyraf ni!!

ariff gets to be james by default. there's no similarities between him and the train yet, but we're keeping our eyes open. i just hope he doesnt follow the " vain" but has the "lots of fun." amir gets a bit confused watching cars, though. hubby used to be lightning mcqueen. now that ariff's the red train, he cant decide whether lightning is hubby or ariff.

the colour of the trains makes my job easy. anything for amir is blue, asyraf is green, ariff is red. so far most of their towels follow the colours, clothes and their tumblers as well. soon it will be laundry baskets (so that each will be responsible for their own clothes), comforters, school bags.

on a totally non-related issue, my menu for the weekend...

footnote - to amir, henry is tiza, edward is tisu and gordon (amir calls him gon) is pappy. pappy cos gordon "thunders down the line..."
