A Date With Ty
When we crossed the Ohio River into Louisville, he guessed we were taking him to Aunt Theresa's because that would be the best surprise. But when we pulled into the parking lot, he identified the Build-a-Bear sign immediately and said he'd seen a commercial for it. Once I told him they have superhero bears, he excitedly exclaimed he hoped they had Batman.
We knew it's what he would choose. Shoot, look at his sweatshirt!
He answered all the questions the salesperson asked. He bought into their sales pitch add-on items but his parents (a.k.a. the people paying) politely declined 90% of them. Can we talk Build-a-Bear people? It isn't appropriate to pitch to six year old children. But we were impressed with how confident Ty was talking to the employees. Kindergarten has been good for him in this area.
Other than kissing the heart he was putting into Batman, Ty played along with all the silly instructions while building his bear. No one gets Ty's kisses. Ever.
We think he likes his new stuffed friend.
