chuggington live!


My boy's first show! Okay, so he has seen stage shows at Disney and the small ones they put on at Dutch Wonderland, and he saw a Disney on Ice thing for a bit last Spring but! An actual show. As in within an actual theater. All big boy style. It was all quite exciting and new. 

Middle children get the short end of the stick, or so I hear. When Letty was David's age she got invited by her uncle to go see his school's production of Beauty and the Beast. She wore her very best Belle dress and brought her very best Belle doll and it has sort of become an annual thing. But David. He always seems younger somehow than his counterpart at no fault of his own, it's just he's younger than she is now. Could he handle an actual show? We wondered...

A few weeks ago Chuggington Live! came to a theater near us and my father took it upon himself to treat Matt and David to a showing, since Letty and I got to go to Frozen on Ice after all. I packed a backpack full of treats and trains for Matt to use as distractions if anything went awry and sent them on their merry way. And yes his shirt isn't buttoned properly. How he will function in the real world with a mother like me is just beyond comprehension.

They had fantastic seats in a fairly packed show. From my understanding David was quite quiet and shy, taking it all in. He sat on Matt's lap the entire time eating his snacks and watching his show. During intermission he played with his choo choos until ready to resume watching again. When he came home he said immediately: I had fun at Chuggington!!! He was remiss to discuss any further.

So can he handle a show? Why yes if that show has trains and includes a never ending supply of chocolate cheerios I think it's safe to say he can. Thank you to Nonna and Poppop for treating the guys!



  1. I always told Dan we are having two kids or four so we could avoid the middle child syndrome LOL.. but It looks like in your fam the middle child has it pretty good :)

  2. omg that first photo with all the excitement on his face! i cannot. and you crack me up with the buttoning of the shirt. i am sure it wasn't the easiest task to even get it buttoned that well. so for that, i commend you my sweet friend :)

  3. So fun! His smile makes me so so happy!

  4. Glad he liked it! He looks so happy to be going. Adorable!

  5. Ha! Look at how proud and happy he looks! Like, damn right its my time!!!

  6. aww how fun!! boy show time!! i bet matt had the chuggington song in his head for days?! haha! i love that your kids do so well with these at their age. i am too chicken to try it just yet [like, if i'm the one funding it] but i'm probably way wrong! i can't wait to start hittin' some shows up one day soon!

  7. chugggggggington chugga chugga chugga chugga chuggington. Aria picked up on chuggington recently. She must have seen it in one of those commercials between Sofia, so now trains are chuggington. And she says it so cutely.
    And, all things are more bearable with chocolate cheerios!

  8. "And yes his shirt isn't buttoned properly. How he will function in the real world with a mother like me is just beyond comprehension." makes me chuckle. :) and David is just the CUTEST.
