His first time

Two nights ago
we went out to run an errand,
and he brought his purse.
It was the first time I heard him say
that he was
"running an errand,"
which sounds different spoken by a
32-month-old person.
We stopped at the DQ
and sat on the window ledge
sharing a Dilly Bar.
We strolled down the mall corridor
looking for the hobby shop
and the train that chugs in its window
until the photo booth stopped him
dead in his tracks.
"You wanna go in there?" he asked.
You bet I did.
It was as if he had been posing in photo booths
forever
but it was only his first time.
