This morning at Starbucks, I met an adorable 26-month-old little boy. He was drinking an organic chocolate milk (in the juice-box type container) and wandering around Starbucks being social. We started talking about the chocolate milk, the cow on the packaging, the milk that comes from cows, his rain boots, etc... And then, he got really excited. He started to enthusiastically tell me about the tractors outside in the parking lot and his face lit up. He pointed outside as if he wanted to take me to see them. I would have loved to go on a tractor tour with him but would have been late for work...

I said goodbye a few times as I walked out the door and we both waved. He came up and pressed his face almost against the glass of the door, waved his hand, and loudly chanted, "bye, bye!" I could hear him when I was a couple feet from the door, then as I approached my car, and, even when I was about 75 feet away, I could still hear him and see him smiling and waving.

He made my morning and day!


  1. Hi Megan, just wanted to let you know I responded to your "Marina Stalker" comments over on the "Starbucks Stalker" blog. Don't worry, I am not actually a stalker, so don't freak out by seeing that I posted on your blog! There's a lot of fear and misconceptions about me that I want to clear up.

  2. So cute! What a great way to start your day. :)
