Caleb, Caris, & I were at Target shopping for a gift for a birthday party we were going to. We were in the â€œprincessâ€ section. Caleb starts to â€œOo, ooâ€ (in a very loud voice). What? Choo-choo. There are no choo-choo trains in the princess section, Caleb. â€œOO-OOâ€ in an even louder voice. I look over and see a red train, completely out of place on the shelf. Caleb frantically keeps saying â€œoo-ooâ€â€¦ essentially communicating his desire to see the train. I hand it over to him to look at and tell him, â€œIâ€™m just letting you hold and look at the train. When we leave, weâ€™ll have to put it back.â€ I turn back to the princess shelf to look for our gift. I turn back to find that Caleb has completely ripped open the train package. Oh no! Can I nonchalantly leave a half-opened/ripped train package on the shelf? I donâ€™t think so. OK, Caleb, you win. You get the train.
The funny thing is this train wasnâ€™t working. Itâ€™s supposed to have a button that let lights and sounds go off. But, the button wasnâ€™t working. So I returned the train the next day with its delapidated box. Haha. Good thing, Caleb hasnâ€™t noticed its gone. Mommy wins!
