day 263: my tater

I remember the first time my oldest son came to the grocery store with me and actually sat up in the seat of the shopping cart.  He had on navy blue elastic waist pants and a little zip-up jacket.  There were a few times that I turned my eyes away just for a second and his little chubby body was leaning over to the side like a handsome little sack of potatoes.  I was pretty sure every single person in the store was staring at him and thinking how lucky I was.

That's all.  Just a little mom memory.

I have a similar memory of my first in a shopping cart. 8 months old. Unfortunately mine climbed out. And let me just tell you, they sound just like a sack of poatatoes hitting the floor, too. Ouch!

Your memory is definitely a better one. Happy Mother's Day.
