We were hanging with celebrities on Saturday. Not that I mean to brag, but how can you not?
Being honest here - I thought Carter would be (typically) scared. But me? I was dying to meet Brobee, so we were taking the chance. Toys R Us was packed. There was face painting, balloon animals, Geoffrey the Giraffe and other free stuff ... each of which had its own line of waiting parents and their kids wrapping around aisles.
Have you ever attempted standing in line with a toddler? How about in the middle of a toy store? Toddlers don't believe in lines. Matt & I took turns standing in line while the other one played in the aisles with Carter. When I finally reached the front, I called Matt's phone, and we wrestled him back into the line. I anticipated the worst; we're scared of so many things (this, this and this).
But his body tightened up, and his face grew a huge smile. We even managed some high fives.
I guess when you recognize a huge, furry, green monster from TV, he doesn't qualify as scary like Easter bunnies, oceans and a jolly man with a fluffy, white beard.
