We went to Staples to get some office supplies when we heard some music being played loudly. “Wow! That person really has their car blasting” was my first thought until I recognized it was live music coming from the local Whole Foods Market. So off we went to investigate and to get some free samples because they are always handing out free samples of something at the store. What we found was their Kids Club in full effect – and full of little ones. We also found a miniature farm had been brought to the store (on the outside of course). A local “petting farm” had brought some of their animals for the children to see and touch.
What touched me most was all of the smaller children and how innocent and sweet they were. Some were afraid of the animals while others were trying to climb in with them, and I felt sorry for that poor little duckling when while being instructed on how to properly hold a duck (they don’t like to have their feet dangling, did you know that?) it just looked like some of those little hands were going to do it harm through no fault of their own other than they had no concept of moderation until instructed.
Who had the most fun while playing peek-a-boo with a little one in an infant carrier, me or the baby? I think I did. I am such a sucker for chubby cheeked little ones.
