Today I did something I swore to myself I would never, ever do. I bought my son a leash.
OK, it isn't a proper leash. It's a kid friendly "child safety harness system" that has a loveable cuddly monkey shape to it. Sort of like this one:
And so, I purchased the leash. And he loves it. Finally, the store is a little bit more manageable. I can't wait to get "the look" from strangers, or have people feel free to interpret my son's harness as me being a lazy parent. Seriously. I dare someone. I pack a mean left hook, and my wedding ring is made of platinum and sharp diamonds. Bring it.
I think I'll put a sign on the monkey that says "If you pet me, I go bananas." Might as well have a good laugh at my expense. :)
