A native Iowa Citian who returned to raise my family here, I find myself *far* more opinionated when it comes to everything from the restaurants to the city council. Here is my $.02.

Hot Date

My two year old son and I had a hot date at the Coral Ridge Mall today. Shopping for new shoes, a little illegal food and some good old fashion rough house at the play area otherwise known as the “germ pit.”

As we walked back through the mall, he stopped on a dime in front of the Victoria’s Secret display window and stood there for five seconds. I know the precise length because it was a *pause* plus me counting to three out loud. Slack jawed, arms hanging, he was in awe. In fact, I haven’t seen him that still and quiet at the same time since…Well I am not sure ever since he was born a mere two years ago.
