I had to "RUN" into Wal-Mart this morning... a necessary evil in my life...and I always laugh to myself when I see these signs for Mom with kids parking that say 10-15 min. limit.
Now I want to make clear, I LOVE THE MOM WITH KIDS PARKING! If we see you pulling into this spot at HEB without children visible in your car, Rusty WILL stop, and say something to you. I'm not kidding.
But the fact that Wal-Mart thinks that a mother with small children could possibly get in and out of it's giant time-sucking store in that short amount of time is laughable to me! It's going to take me 7.5 min. to get in, and at least that to get out. That's not taking into account the joyous 30-45 min. I spend juggling three kids with their teeny-tiny baskets! Could someone from Target call Sam and let him know about the baskets? Sometimes I would rather just spend the extra money at Target (and because it's a happy place; it has Starbucks) than to deal with the lack of basket space.
I have decided not to take this time limit literally, but more as a suggestion.
