I took my Errand Helper (aka Nicky) along with me to knock out some to-do’s today.  Library, vitamin store, etc.  Most importantly (and most enjoyably, thus saved for last) was a trip to Barnes & Noble and Toys R Us, so he could pick out birthday presents for his brother.  As we left the house, I said to Nicky, “It’s Monday.  Help me look for benches!”

So he did.


He loved that I was being sneaky, taking a photo in the book store…but not enough to climb up on the little bench with me.  He thinks it’s silly, but I guess it’s a good, “Mom” kind of silly.  I’ll take that.
