I took mine a lot when he was little, especially when we were working on socialization because itís puppy friendly. Eventually I rarely needed to go, between food deliveries and a gifted Barkbox subscription. Now when I do itís kind of stressful because heís SO excited. There also isnít grass at the one nearest to my house, the parking lot has the medians with ground-cover rocks and plants instead of grass. It used to be hard to get him to pee on rocks, so I had to find someplace nearby with grass to take him potty right before. But everyone always stops and says how cute he is and asks what breed he is and my kids love it. They always want to go and when we do itís like a fun family event!
My kids are really close in age, but my oldest has always had a hard time with errands and shopping, so I avoided them a lot. I remember when he went into kindergarten, I started taking advantage of that time and go to the store with only my 4 year old while he was in school. She was the opposite, she loved it, and it was so much fun. She was always very engaged in the shopping, like your son, with lots of ďideasĒ about what to get. She was always good about ďnoĒ and putting things back, but that almost makes it harder for me to say no, haha. She was pretty spoiled by things from the dollar sections of Target and the craft store for a while.
What a fun memory to have. Itís been such a crazy year. I imagine your son will remember the special outing with his mom and the puppy when he looks back on ďThe Covid Era.Ē
