He’s Reaching For The Stars

, , | Right | May 13, 2016

(I work in a toy store and it’s not odd for me to be approached by children asking where items are located in the store. However, one day I’m approached by a little boy, his mother, and his grandmother.)

Boy: “Excuse me; do you have anything on planets?”

Me: “Planets? Sure! Right this way.”

(I lead the group to area for our science section which was where our space-centric toys were located and the little boy gasps.)

Boy: “I have that one!” *points to a space system mobile set* “Oh, I want this!” *picks up a box of glow-in-the-dark planets* “Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto!”

Me: “Woah, you know all the planets, huh?” *surprised because he can’t be older than three*

Boy’s Mother: “He knows all the moons, too. He just loves space.”

Boy: “Look! It’s got Saturn’s rings!” *holds up the set*

(Cutest little boy ever. Whenever I’m feeling a bit blue, I tend to think of the budding little space scientist.)
