Unattended

Today I walked into the bathroom at Target. Directly in front of me was a huge sign that read, "Do not leave your child unattended while using the diaper changing station."

Huh...seriously? At this precise moment I had 2 thoughts: first-what exactly has happened in the Targets across America that would result in these signs being posted, and second-now there's a thought even I haven't entertained.

From the millisecond that I picked up my kids from school, they have been fighting and whinning. I even have one who is crying because I don't love her enough....blah, blah, blah. While 2 of my offspring were fighting over the spoon to stir dinner, I happened to think about my Target sign. Right then and there, I thought about packing them all up, driving to Target, and strapping all 3 of them to that diaper changing station, and then leaving. There they would be--unattended. Then, I could grab a book, and sit in the lawn and garden area until they found me, because you know that they would definitely find me. They smell fear.

So, the next time your children are having a melt down, just mull over the idea of the diaper changing station.

Unattended.....I like it.

Lisa! I LOVE your blog! I laugh and laugh at your honesty and humor. You should write a column....seriously! You would be AWESOME! Keep in touch. I am reminded of the good ol' days on Crescent Vista!

Ok, I am loving this idea!! Since I practically live at Target, I can just leave my kids at the changing station. That way, only those in the restroom have to hear their whining and tantrums, not the whole store. It's a win-win situation. :)

so Lisa this is Bethany. You know the store Ross? "Dress For Less"? well....we did a yw activity there and the neon sign is broken. The "For" doesn't work at all. So basically it says "Ross: Dress Less" What images of your children does this conjure?
