I have officially graduated from BRU. That's Babies R Us for the unitiated. While I poke my head in from time to time, the days of weekly visits have passed. Now it's T(oys)RU. Sophie hasn't yet learned how to beg for toys, however her mother is a little less restrained when it comes to deciding her daughter should have something. I see something on TV or at a friend's house and she MUST have it. I swear it's not about keeping up with the Joneses so much as keeping the girl occupied. If it works for someone else, it could work for us.
This past weekend I decided it was time to look into an outdoor wheeled vehicle for the Bean. Whenever we go to the park, she always gravitates towards the trikes, big wheels and scooters that the older kids leave laying around. So we bundled into the family wagon and set off for TRU. When we arrived in the bike/trike section, Sophie practically jumped out of the cart in her excitement. She ran right over to this pink Radio Flyer, dragged it off the shelf and jumped onto it. We had a match.
Now she loves going outside to hop on her new ride. She can't reach the pedals well enough to move herself yet, but she loves being pushed around on it. I am sure it won't be long before she can propel herself.
I swear just yesterday she was a tiny bundle in my arms, where did this KID come from?
