Nathan and I were playing with his trains on his train tracks. One of the extras that came with his train set is a little “car wash” you can run the trains through. See, a few times a month, I’ll take Nathan with me to an actual car wash to vacuum out my car, and then we have fun watching all the suds and spinning sponges as we go through the wash itself. So as we were playing with his trains, I talked about taking his trains through the car wash on the tracks, like we do with my car.

“Ready to take your trains to the car wash?” I asked.

“No. Train wash,” Nathan stated matter-of-factly.

This kid is sharp. Very sharp.
