Matthew loves riding in shopping carts. Being a stroller in a store doesn't cut it anymore. He likes to be up higher and able to observe more freely.
I picked up some boring household items, but I also got a few things for Matthew. It's getting way too warm for his footie pajamas, so some new summer pajamas were in order.
Once we left Target, I decided to stop at a playground that I knew had toddler swings. I've been wanting to allow him to enjoy some swinging, but our previous playground stops only had swings for bigger kids. Matthew definitely enjoyed the swing.
Once he grew tired of swinging, we walked around the park and explored. When I decided it was time to go, Matthew resisted and ended up falling and scraping his knees on the asphalt. Poor kid! I felt so bad. I cleaned him up as best as I could, and then we headed home.
At Target, Matthew had spotted one of his favorite books from his day care and was stretching and trying to get out of the cart to get to it. Obviously, I had to buy it. I also picked up a couple new toys for Matthew's Little People Farm. I figured these new toys would make up for the knee scrapes he suffered. Turns out, all I needed were the boxes.
