On Saturday, Cade's mother was gone out-of-town, with some other ladies in the wedding party, to look at some bridesmaid's dresses for our youngest son, Brad's, wedding. Late in the afternoon, my son, Brett, picked Cade up from his aunt's house since he'd been there most of the day.
Since both of my sons were alone for the evening, while their ladies were still shopping, they decided to take Cade and go to Wal-mart and Lowes together! It's a 30 minute drive to get there. I was surprised, but very pleased to hear that my guys attempted this because it was a "milestone" for both of them! To my knowledge, neither of them has ever taken a toddler shopping--without a woman around!
I laughed at son Brad's "play-by-play" account of their experience, but it sounded like everything went along fine, and I think Brad was amused... Cade is now in his "terrible twos", which means he's moody and tempermental sometimes. I think both fellows dealt with Cade's "likes" and "dislikes" pretty well! (one minute he likes something, the next he doesn't)
Congratulations, to both of my sons. I'm very proud of them for taking a toddler shopping--and succeeding in actually making a purchase! In my opinion, that speaks well for both of them!
