The Elevator

Shopping with my husband and three young children turned into quite an adventure for our three year old!  We were upstairs in a large department store, heading to the elevator because our youngest was in the stroller.  I was holding our three year old son's hand when suddenly, he let go and started running towards the open elevator.  For such a little guy with short legs, he sure could run fast!  Before I could reach him, he got in the elevator and the door closed shut behind him.  The blood-curdling screams could be heard all over the store as the elevator began its descent to the first floor.  My husband raced to the escalator, in hopes of getting to the elevator downstairs before the door opened but it didn't matter.  His screams were so distinct, that there was no question where he was.  :)  The little guy learned one of those natural consequences that day.  Stay with Mom and Dad!

I'll have to ask him someday if he remembers that experience and if he's still afraid of elevators.  :)
