Thomas the Tank Engine

I Just got done reading Lucy Thomas the Tank Engine as her bedtime story. After it was over she looked at me very concerned.
Lucy: I want to read about Lucy the train tomorrow
Me: Oh really, is that a book?
Lucy: Yes! Thomas will call me Lucy and we can be friends. Best friends!
Me: Okay, well maybe we can find a train named Lucy. What color would she be?
Lucy: Ummm....maybe blue or something.
Me: Well Thomas is blue and red, so maybe you can be pink and purple.
Lucy: I guess that would be okay. Maybe we could paint the blue train pink and purple or something. That should be a great good idea.
Me: That would be a good idea.

We talked like that for awhile longer and she ended up being happy about the whole thing. Apparently now I have to find some kind of train that I we can color pink and purple. It is hard to explain to a 3-year-old that not everybody has a cartoon train with their same name. Sigh...
