Thank you, Harris Teeter.

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?

We even had some fun with the balloon after we got home.  I tied it to Chase's high chair so it wouldn't fly up to the ceiling.  He looks a little bit like a birthday boy sitting there enjoying his peas, doesn't he?  Hard to believe that next month he'll actually BE the birthday boy!

  1. Funny! We just had an orange balloon from Harris Teeter tied on Ada's highchair yesterday. We get one EVERY trip, and they're a huge hit! :)
