Today, my wife and son were trapped in a department store elevator. All told, they were there for about a half an hour.
At first, he cried and cried from being trapped in such a hot, small, boring space. In any other situation he would need to be walked around in his stroller to keep from crying. But, as the fear of being trapped began to set in for my wife, his demeanor changed. As she nursed him to keep him hydrated, he reached out his little hand and held hers. He never let go until help arrived and they were safe.
Only 4 months old and he was so strong for his mama. I'm so proud of our big little boy.
