What got me thinking about this was I went out this weekend to do my pant shopping for the decade hahahha Yes I am a guy and shopping is like slow death for me so I only do it every 7-10 years When I was at the mall I saw a young mom who had 4.5 kids with her hahha Ok the .5 was her hubby who looked as happy as I was to be there and was pouting.
What caught my eye the most was her 2 youngest kids had on one of the Childgards. They are electronic child monitors and she had the panda on both of her little girls’ wrists.
I have been told that I need to update my style which for the women was probably obvious when I said it has been over 7 years since I shopped last. So I stopped in some store with a foofie name and clothes that were way to metro for me but I at least looked. About this time that same family with all the kids came in.
The wife started grabbing clothes and holding them up to her hubby who looked as embarrassed as I was to be seen there. Maybe 5 minutes had went by and the kids were already a bit rowdy before they even got into the store so it was getting worse. The woman was trying quickly to find something for her hubby to wear so neither of them was paying full attention to anything.
Honestly, not to sound bad but it reminded me why I have no kids Just as I was about to make my retreat from the store I heard an alarm go off and both parents start yelling out “christie”! Maybe a second later you hear a “what” come from over by the exit.
The parents quickly gathered the kids up and scolded Christie for walking away from them. I was sitting there with the biggest smile on my face after seeing the childgard in actual action. We sell tons of those things and it is good so see people actually using them.
The first thing most parents of lost children say is “I only took my eyes off of him/her for a second”, well a second is all it takes for something bad to happen so having an extra pair of eyes can really help.
On a lighter note:
Since I don’t live near water I can safely say bring on the rain! We have got more rain here in Texas this year already than all of last year combined.
Downside to that of course is flooding and those people that no matter how many rescues you see on the news, still decide to drive their family CAR through a high water crossing.
They have had to rescue several people up in the Dallas Fort Worth area already today and I am sure there will be more. People give your rescuers a break and turn around!
For those that don’t you better get one of our 4 in 1 emergency tools so you can get out and be on the roof of your car waiting for the helicopter.
Until next time, stay safe and keep your eyes open and your kids close!
