I always forget about the free balloons that Harris Teeter has for kids. I used to notice them but thought that Chase was too young to 'get' it and therefore didn't get a balloon for him. I think I was wrong about that. Last week while we were waiting to check out, Chase was getting pretty fussy and I was having a hard time entertaining him. I noticed a balloon that was tied to the display right next to where I was standing, so I pulled it down where he could see it. He immediately lit up and started grinning really big. Thank you, Harris Teeter for that lovely metallic balloon near the check-out counter. I'd also like to thank you for the free orange balloon that Chase and I got to take home that afternoon. Who knew how much fun balloons could be?
