I took Jakob to the mall to let him play in the toddler area for the first time. He loved it, but there were of course three teenage boys playing gangbangers in there. There was a huge sign that said you had to be ten years or under 42" to play in there, so the old lady in me was pretty annoyed. I had to stay right by Jakob becuse he was the littles kid there. Then we walked around the mall and did some window shopping. I am pretty sure he spotted at least 15 balls while we walked, and ended up wearing me down. I wanted to buy him a soccer ball, but he would have no part of it. He wanted a Mavs basketball instead, so I bought it for him.
