"D.S. 2.0" is 2 years old and as people are wont to say, "he's very active."
Even when my daughter was a toddler, I saw people with young kids on a "leash" and muttered to myself that parent was wrong and just didn't have control over their child. Now that I have "D.S. 2.0" to look after and turn into a man, I have to apologize to those parents because I now know and feel their pain.
We were in the mall shopping and I was tethered to him as we were walking to leave. He saw a video game store and saw either an open game controller or saw a guitar that you can learn to play by playing a video game or maybe he saw both, but he made the dash. I yanked him back, or rather, I made the motion to yank him back but he kept going because "the leash" is actually a bungee cord. So I had to dash after him and grab him and pull him back.
An older brother was cracking up at this point.
O.B. <laugh>OH!!!! I understaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnndddddddd why you have that now.
<laugh>It's still wrong 'doe, but I UNDERSTAND.
And I laughed right along with him.
After that the Mrs. decides to change him and takes him into the rest room. Coming out he saw a kiosk and went right for it. According to the Mrs., the Caribbean or African man said the leash was not a good idea and as he was about to continue, D.S. 2.0 went for one of the figurines. According to Mrs. D.S., dude stopped what he was going to say, and said, "OK. Now I see why you have him on the leash! He's BUSY!"
