So in honor of back to school shopping (and tax free weekend) we picked up some new shirts and shoes for Henrik. He is pretty cool about shoe shopping so far and he impressed the sales girl by letting us put on and take off shoes.
As for the car wash, most of the visit was great. He met two 20 something chicks the adored him. They reminded me of my best friend in high school and myself. One was a bit more in fashion and the other a little more granola. Want to guess who was who?
We were watching cars and playing a bit when an older guy came in. He put his hat and stuff down on a side table there, then he crouched down and told Henrik, "come here" with big wide arms. So yeah, Henrik went running.
I was mortified. Seriously? Who does that?
He scooped up Henrik and twirled him around and was laughing and giggling with him.
I looked at the girls and made a face that said, "I don't know what to do".
They came up and one held her hands out and said it was her turn. Henrik went to her and then realized something was funny and held his arms out to me.
It turns out the guy has grand kids, one 8 years old and one born in March. I tried to make a little small talk, but had enough and we went outside.
I've never been so freaked out. It would have been completely different if he had asked first. So, that was my first scary mommy moment. *shudder* let's hope that doesn't happen again.
If he went to school, this would be his first day outfit. Stripey shirt that brings out his eyes and snazzy shoes!
