Back in February, when my Dad was in town, he took Roan to the Children's Museum and bought him a train from the gift shop.  He also bought a gift for Ilan - a train that spelled his name.  Except that when you're shopping with a 3-year-old, it's not always easy to focus on things like spelling.  Instead of the letters I L A N, he came home with T L O N.

This is just the kind of thing I find hopelessly hilarious.  We constantly teased my poor Dad, though in all honesty, the letters I and T looked so similar that nobody noticed at first that he'd bought a T instead of an I.  It took a neighbor to point that one out.  Of the four letters in his grandson's name, my Dad had got two of them wrong.

Months later, Jay finally exchanged the T and the O for and I and an A.  Here is the ILAN train, though we still call it the TLON train.

  1. I'm so happy that is fix thank you Jay. We got Roan the big boy train that day and Ro was not much help once he got the big boy train.
