Going to the store...
Remember when your kids were small and you had to practically tie them down when you went into the store so they didn't touch or break anything? Or, worse worrying about someone making off with them? I was in a Wal-Mart once when an 18-month old was taken from her Mom's shopping cart, drugged, head shaved and clothes changed in the bathroom. Fortunately the Mother had gone to store security right away instead of looking for the baby by herself and they found the child in the bathroom. The store was locked up tight and people were let out 2 or 3 at a time. Scary!!
Anyway, when your children get older you start to worry a little less. Heck by the time they are 16 you figure it's no big deal for them to go look at Halloween stuff in Target while you are doing some shopping. As the minutes go by though the old fears can kick in. You might get worried and go looking for them when they don't answer their cell phone. Your heart pounds and your pulse accelerates as you go searching in the store. Then you might turn a corner and find this:
Remember all those years of "Look with your eyes, not with your hands!" Are all for naught, because when they turn 16 they open Halloween costumes and model them in the store aisles!
