Our trip to Trader Joe's this morning was quite the opposite, with him wanting my hand nowhere near him or his balloon, thankyouverymuch, and announcing it in his loudest voice for all to hear. His bad attitude continued through all the aisles, into the parking lot and for the trip home where he got really extra mad when he let go of his balloon in the kitchen and I - STUPID MOMMY - encouraged him to reach up and get it himself since the string was long enough. What was I thinking?
But then I let him play outside with his new sand table while I fixed his lunch and his mood turned back again. He was, in fact, so happy that I was able to capture a little something for you:
I think I then made his day by taking him to the pool after his nap. He literally started cheering when we walked in. I guess maybe those HOA dues might be worth it after all! And he made my day by gracing me with unsolicited super-squeezy hugs and kisses on the cheek. I love my little boy along with all his ups, downs and in-betweens.
