a really good laugh

I was in the frozen veggie isle of our grocery store last night minding my own business and picking a couple thing up. A woman and her son were there too. I glanced over as she let her son, who was no older than 6, climb up on the edge of the freezer and pick out what was needed as she held the door. I love when parents let their children help shop. Turn it into a scavenger hunt and give praise for finding the items and helping.

Anyway back to the story. So the little boy reached up on his tippy toes and got the item. You could tell he was proud he could reach it. He handed it to his Mom and she put it in the cart. While putting it in the cart she didn't realize she let go of the door and it closed with the little boy still standing on the ledge in the freezer! The boy started laughing! The mom looked horrified for a split second and then looked at me and laughed too. It came out of nowhere. I laughed. Like a full on whole hearted belly laugh. It felt sooooo good. The mom let her son out of the freezer and he kept giggling and smiling ear to ear. I know it's probably one of those things where "you had to be there", but I just felt like sharing since it really put me in a good mood. I needed that.

  1. When he gets older she'll want to stick him in the cooler to "fix" his teen age attitude probably.

  5. HA! I went shopping with one of my 6 year old boys today. He helped me make the list, find the items, and put them in the cart. It's a great age for little helpers :)

    I'm glad you got a good laugh today.
