A lot of people are "impressed" that I go anywhere alone with my kids. But I figure if I can't take care of them, who can? Every week I take all 4 kids grocery shopping, out to eat, and somewhere fun...like the zoo, aquarium, or park. To tell you the truth, my children are better in public. (not always...but usually) There is more to look at, discover and explore. I think at home they get bored and whine more.
Anyway, earlier this week, it was an especially hot day and we NEEDED to get out of the house. My sister and I took the kids up to the mall to eat and play. Ahhh...an air conditioned playground.
We walked past Abercrombie and Fitch, the music trying to draw us into the overpriced store, Gavin had to stop and dance. Not sure what took over him...maybe the overpowering cologne had a dancing effect on my 3 year old. He drew quite a crowd of onlookers. The employees looked annoyed at my little redhead making a mockery out of there oh so serious store....so I decided to let him dance as long as he wanted. He was there for at least 10 minutes.
