Sun Shiny Day at the Grocery Store

I had the most pleasant experience at the grocery store today.

Everywhere I went, people smiled at me.  It was delightful.  It took me about .5 seconds to figure out the reason they were smiling: Noah was strapped in his Baby Bjorn, facing out like a little kangaroo joey, his head bobbing to and fro with each step I took.

Of course they were smiling!

At one point, I walked up to a thug-looking teenage worker who was stocking shelves. 

"Excuse me," I said.  "Can you tell me where the dry onion soup mix is?"

He looked up from his shelf, and his eyes settled on Noah for a second, and when he looked back at me to answer, I could tell he was fighting a grin.  This made me fight a grin too, and when it was apparent that we were both trying not to smile, the kid burst out laughing and squealed, "Ohhhh he's so cute!"

It made my day.


  1. I love this post. Babies break down all the walls. I knew these women in Las Vegas who swore they never wanted kids (why would ANYBODY?!). Yet, when I told them I was pregnant, they all squealed with glee. People love babies. Wish I could meet that Noah Nugget of yours!

  2. Ha ha ha ha! I love that is was a teenage boy - cutest. xo

  3. Love it! Babies peeking out from Bjorns are pretty insane. At that exact age we were in Oregon with the McKs and I would take walks on the beach when I was feeling blue and Cal was in the Bjorn facing out with a bucket hat on. The grins and attention we got cheered me up every time!

  4. I am grinning ear to ear just reading about it.

  5. That is SO Freaking adorable I might just have to strap my dog or cat in one of those suckers and walk around Target. :D

    You think it would have the same effect?


I love hearing from you!! Thanks for the comment!
