A great morning! I got a few things accomplished...I had been putting off two errands for months and finally got them taken care of, so I was very satisfied with my end to procrastination in that department!! Then I went to Target and got a few giftcards for friends. Each time I go to Target with my toddler, we always get popcorn and a drink. It keeps his fingers occupied while I shop as fast as I can until he remembers that there are many backhoes and trucks there in the toy department. We were able to escape without much drama and were in there for a total of about 10 minutes!! In the parking lot, I noticed a few birds eating morsels of food. I unloaded my bag and purse from the basket and was getting ready to transfer my toddler, but he had other plans in mind. He wanted to watch the birds. We ended up standing by the vehicle (fortunately, he was still buckled in the cart seat) for at least 20 minutes. It was so fun!! I didn't have a time schedule and we threw bits of popcorn down for the birds. And I kept showing him the different birds while observing their run/walk/movement to the popcorn! Eventually, he realized that loud monster noises make birds move away very fast! And that was that!!
