Our family loves IKEA. Really, who doesn’t? Z, V and I decided to spend the morning at IKEA just having fun. I let Z walk on his own while I wore V in the Ergo Baby. I still took the stroller so that I could nap V before we got into the car to go home.
Our first stop was the kids section. It was fairly quiet, since it was only 20 min after 10. I let V out to play on the floor and she loved it. Z had so much fun with those blowup cushions. We were smacking one side of it and launching the fox stuffies into the air and he thought it was the most hilarious thing!
Around 10:40, Z declared he was hungry. Part of it was because he saw the cafeteria, which was in front of the kids section. I had to explain to him that it was too early and they weren’t serving lunch yet. So we went and walked around some more. I offered him a cheese stick, to which he politely declined. Then I took out an apple and offered it to him and he happily took it. At this time we were in the beds section and he climbed onto one, settled in and enjoyed his apple.
When he was finished, he got off, handed me the half eaten apple and said, “Now I have more energy. That was a very good apple, mom.”
