At the start of a carousel ride while at Gilroy Garden’s amusement park yesterday, three-year-old Alex decided at the last second that the horse he was on was too big (shortly after he’d said he wanted to be on the big one). I quickly placed him on a smaller horse. In the process, he lost his shoe. It bounced and landed on the ground a few feet (no pun intended) from the carousel. I told him we’d get it when the ride was over.
As the carousel began to spin, I pointed out where his mommy stood waving at him. Rather than look for her and wave back, he focused on his “lost” shoe. Every time he saw it as we went around, he waved and said, “Hi, shoe! Bye shoe!”
Now that is cute
Thank you for saying so, Joanne.
That’s a scene right there. How hilarious! Gilroy, as in garlic Gilroy?
Thank you for your kind comment, Mark. Yes, Gilroy, as in “The Garlic Capital of the World” Gilroy. It’s about forty minutes drive from our home.
Kids do say the darndest things!
They do indeed, Mrs. P!
so cute – and he wanted to make sure he kept an eye on it )
Yup! I agree on both counts, both.
That just made my morning Russ 🙂
I’m glad to know it, Colleen. I hope the rest of your day is full of blessings.
Kids say the funniest things sometimes. Too adorable.
They do indeed. I love the humor, inquisitiveness, and spontaneity of young children.
Yeah very inspiring
