This is what happens when my children’s father has unfulfilled childhood dreams.
He goes to Planet Toy, blows a couple of hundred on Takara Tomy’s diecast cars and tracks. He says he would never allow our sons to say ‘I’ve always wanted one of these, but never got them’.
I wished I’d taken a picture of my two boys, aged thirty-eight and three respectively, playing with cars; and a video of them making funny sounds when they play.
And I happen to also know my husband had always wanted a massive rail system, complete with diecast trains, and a Husky. Uh-oh.
