The Nugget discovered escalators recently. We'd been avoiding them until we deemed him coordinated enough to ride without certain injury. Well, he thinks an escalator is just the world's most amazing ride, even forsaking the precious elevator buttons to ride the moving steps. We got to indulge his mania in the airports last week, but alas, there are no escalators at home. No matter. Here's what happened tonight.

Nugget: (stands on bottom step of our stairwell, holding railing) I riding esc'lator! Mommy, Daddy ride esc'lator too!

Me: (after standing for about 30 seconds) I think we need to walk up this escalator.

N: Ok! (reaches the top of the steps and says, like a game show host) Thank you for riding the esc'lator today!


  1. I love it when they makes us smile big like that!

  2. HAHAHA!! Maybe he'll get a summer job working at an amusement park!
