It took a while for my heart to catch up with real life.
It hit hard at Trader Joes on Thursday.
Theodore isn't a baby anymore.
Eva was at preschool, so it was just us.
The little carts are usually his sisters job, but I thought "Hey, why not."
I had planned on letting him go for just a little while.
Sure he would get tired of walking soon and I would get tired of chasing.
He walked the whole store.
Following me and filling his basket.
We only ended up with one "surprise purchase" at checkout.
The cashier told him what a big and helpful little boy he was being today.
Yep, she said it...
he is a little boy.
