If Ben Were an Interior Decorator

This weekend we were running errands and Mike wanted to go to Dick's Sporting Goods. It is in the same parking lot as World Market and Home Goods, so I asked Mike to drop me off there. Ben chose to go with me, so Mike took Liv and we headed in. Have you ever taken a 3 year old boy to a home store? He found the most interesting decor...

First up was this stylish adirondack chair. I liked the color and style, he liked that it was hard to climb into and he could do his legs like a snow angel in it.

His next find was this airplane. Admittedly, it is pretty cool. It was on clearance for $349 (originally $1000) but that is still too rich for my blood. But Ben sure liked admiring it.

His next discovery was this horse. Interesting... He asked me if he could ride on it. Um, no. Time to move on before I'm the proud owner of this thing.

Keeping with the horse theme, this horse picture was the next thing to catch his eye.

And his last find of the day, a doggie figurine. He sat and played with this for a good 5 minutes. If only he'd found this is an aisle with something interesting for me to look at too. Sigh.

If you are looking to actually shop, I'd recommend you leave the 3 yr old home. But if you want a good laugh, definitely take them along.


  1. That little dog reminds me of that beloved ceramic bulldog he had when we were visiting. The boy loves his dog figurines.

    Also, that plane is totally rad.

  2. Hmmm. as the mother of 3 in my day, I would've put him in the cart basket with the dog figurine and shopped my heart out.
