Life Lesson #238: Never Bring Baby Into a Target at Lunchtime without a Pacifier or Some Other Type of Toy

If you do, the following things are subject to happen:

  • Your sunglasses may become a play toy (and may land on the floor repeatedly)
  • Your purse may become a play toy
  • In a last-ditch effort, your shopping list may become a play-toy (and then be lost on the ground)
  • By the time you reach the checkout lane, your baby’s screams may become so distracting that you forget to use the $1 off diaper coupon and $2 off baby sunscreen coupon that were the entire reason you purchased those products in the first place.

This has been a public service announcement from the W-family alliance for relaxed (and frugal) mothers.

  1. CUTE! And so real ……… 🙂

  2. I have Life Lesson #239 for you.

    Never get on an airplane in Atlanta with a one year old on your lap in the aisle seat putting your diaper bag in the overhead compartment while it is raining and sit kitty corner from author Donna Erickson of Donna’s Day. Why, you ask? Because, suddenly, out of nowhere, the pilot may announce after he has pulled away from the gate that you will remain on the runway until he is told that there is no longer any windshear reported in the area and then the temp in the plane will suddenly rise and your 1 year old will begin to scream from thirst and Donna will try to think of activities to console your thirsty child whose Gerber apple juice is in the overhead compartment, but due to FAA regulations you must stay seated and buckled since you have left the gate. Not that this has ever happened to me.

  3. Oh my shopping list would generally become a chew toy and all my items would be a slobbery mess.

    Oh, and I NEVER remember to use the coupons that I brought to the store! Never.

  4. You are HILARIOUS, Nikki! 🙂
