When hatchling no1 looks up and says to me, 'Mama, there are no trains here?'
'Nope, just boats, horses, and cars.'
'You must miss them.' She says thoughtfully. 'You got such a short time with them.'
'I'm not sure sweetheart. Why do you ask?'
'Well, trains hadn't been invented yet, when you were a child. They must have been amazing to see for the first time.'
'Huh. Perhaps we should get a book on trains when we go to the library.'
(I'm not that old, child!)
