Attempted kidnapping...

This is Jeremy's new all time favorite embarrassing story from my life. He was even more thrilled that he got to watch in unfold, partly thinking to himself..."MAKE HER STOP!" Here is how it went down...

We were in one of our favorite stores in Disneyland the Star Trader, you know the Star Wars one. (Let me digress for a moment: Jeremy came across a saying called "seeing birds" What it means is that one gets easily distracted and forgets what he/she should be doing. For example one needs to go to the bathroom but sees a dirty sock and puts it away, later remembering you were on your way to the bathroom, now I will continue the story) We were actually done and ready to leave when I decided to window shop and Jeremy was about done. I reached down to where Logan was and gently steered his head towards Jeremy and said come on Logan. I continued to "see birds". Logan kind of moved his head to get my hand off him. Jeremy then called my name. I then gently try to lead Logan away...again. He was not moving. Jeremy called my name again. I was getting frustrated because he was hurrying me. So I look down to tell Logan firmly to follow me. Logan had a toy in his hand and was playing with it. I go to reach for the toy as I am asking him where did he get it. Then I realized at that same time Jeremy was calling my name for the third time that this boy whose head I was using as a joystick was NOT my son. His dad was standing right there and never said a peep. I then tried to fumble through an explanation. I don't think he thought it was funny but he was not upset, I am sure he was debating who would last longer if the boy came with me.

After a good time of thinking (and Jeremy practically busting a gut) I should have said " We have a hard time having boys I was trying to even out the playing field and your boy was cute enough!"
