Toddler B then decided it was time for a cheeseburger...
Cheeseburger- he yelled- CHEESEBURGER!!!!!
Toddler B, I explained- I don't have money for a cheeseburger right now. But, I can make you a cheeseburger when we get home.
Money? Cheeseburger? He asked...
That's right, Toddler B, we need money for a cheeseburger...
That explanation seemed to appease him for a moment...
On the way towards the mall exit, we passed by a conservative lingerie store...to which Toddler B exclaimed rather enthusiastically-
OOBIES!!!! MOMMY OOBIES!!!!
(he actually said it correctly, with a B, but I'm attempting to keep unwanted readers away who might be googling oobies with a B!)
I caught myself looking around to see who was in hearing distance...
I breathed a sigh of relief in realizing that no one was paying any attention- or at least- pretending not to pay attention....
So now, as I sit here- watching Toddler B entertain myself- I think to myself-
what a beautiful day it is here in the Northwest-
The sun is shining
The skies are blue
Toddler B is dancing and singing to another Barney song-
What more could I ask for?!!!
Oh- and about that cheeseburger-
I was able to find $2 worth of change in the car-
B and I were able to enjoy a McD's cheeseburger after all
To which he happily stated-
Yummy!- I replied, smiling at my Toddler B.
It's the cheeseburger moments that I will cherish forever-
