Get around, get around, I get around

I was privileged to witness a revelation today.

Anna and I were discussing getting a booster seat for Daniel for my Mazda truck. This afternoon, when everyone else was sacked out, I could have taken him out on some errands; if he had some experiences like that available to him, he and James might not agitate each other so much, what with all the time they spend in each other's company.

Well, as soon as Daniel heard that, nothing would satisfy him but that we should go to Walmart tonight and get a booster seat. No hound dog was ever so antsy for a ride as Daniel was. So we put Anna's child seat in my truck, and off we went. And, oh, my.

Daniel had probably never ridden in the front seat before. And he's certainly never sat up that high before, so far as I know. He was as exhilarated as if he were taking a ride at the fair. He could see everything! And so we talked about all that we saw, including traffic signs and the rules of the road. He is in love with travel now. I predict he won't want to ride in the back seat any more. : )
