Saturdays are made for the mall; really, they are. You were so good that I let you pick out a new Thomas the Train car. You got Merlin the Invisible, which is a shiny chrome three-car set.
You got dropped off late at school so you could have breakfast with daddy, and we picked you up early from school so we could spend some time together and play.
We had to explain to you today the concept of not buying something every time we go to a store. Last time we were in Barnes & Noble playing with the Thomas the Tank Engine set, we ended up buying you a toy train or train car. This time, daddy had to explain that we were not going to buy you a train, and he had to make you okay with it. I think it was equally hard on you both!
We let you pick out a book to buy from Barnes & Noble today. Win! Realizing that you’re already too smart for the activity book = double win! Such a proud moment!!
