If you will recall, in this post from May I was a little bleary, teary-eyed and all over the end of preschool and the end of the baby years in my household.
Well, I've adjusted rather famously after a trying summer with my adorable son. However, last week Mr. Incredible and I went shopping at Grapevine Mills during the middle of the school day. And I couldn't remember the last time I had been there without my little Bonus. Without my shopping buddy (who admittedly drives me straight to crazy in malls).
Mr. Incredible and I powered through about ten stores looking for a replacement for his TWENTY PLUS year old Rainbow sandals (twenty years... that's some quality... and they are still wearable). It was nice to be able to move in and out of the stores quickly. I was able to look at anything I wanted to for as long as I wanted to.
After shopping for a couple of hours, Mr. Incredible and I stopped by Mrs. Field's for some chocolate milk and cookies. While it was nice to have a day to spend with my husband, I couldn't help but miss my little buddy and wish he was there to share my chocolate milk and cookies for just one brief second. Chocolate milk and cookies just cry out for sweet, sweaty, little boys...
