My husband and I had plans to go to a fancy dinner in a few week and I had purchased a new hot mama dress for the occasion. The dress was pretty fitted so I needed some topnotch undergarments for under my dress. I decided to take the boys to Macy’s with me to try on some bra and shape wear options. We got to Macy’s. I found some contenders and then headed to the dressing room with the boys in tow. At first everything was great. Colin was standing there patiently and Asher was content in the umbrella stroller. So I start to make my way through the pile of options. Then Asher started to become fussy in the stroller, so I unstrapped him and let him out. All was well and calm for a few minutes. Then Asher decided to duck under the raised wall of the dressing room and high tail it down the hall. Both boys were cracking up. I thankfully caught up to him before he got to the entry of the dressing room area. Also thankfully I had my sundress on at the time. We returned back to the dressing room. Both boys were very tickled by this incident. Colin started egging on Asher to do it again. Asher then does it two more times and I have to run after him each time. I had one more bra to try on. I was standing in front of the raised part of the wall in an effort to block Asher from darting out again. Unfortunately he weaseled past me and went running down the dressing room hallway. This time I was only in my bra and unders. I flung open the door and went chasing after him. He was really moving this time and ran clear out of the dressing room. I caught up with him right as he was entering the store area. I grabbed him up and hung my head as I ran bare assed in my thong thong thong thong thong back to the dressing room. Meanwhile the boys were beside themselves with laughter……. Good Times. Good Times.
The super difficult mall shopping experience. Ahh yes, I remember the days when I could just stroll through the mall with peace and ease. And let’s not forget my complete indecent exposure in Macy’s.
The pure joyful laughter ringing from my two precious boys. The shear love and partnership they have cultivated between them is heartwarming. They are true partners in crime.
