5.) Tell us and/or show us something that made you smile this week.

Kainoa hopped into the electric shopping cart that sits in front of Target’s doors and I was all, “Get out of there!” with my 30 bags.

And he was all, “But MOM! What does this mean??” and he pointed at the picture that warns parents not to put their babies in the front basket of the scooter.

But Kainoa trying to understand it, “No Zombie baby in da basket?”

Say what?

But upon closer inspection of the drawing I could only affirm that this was exactly what the sign meant.

“Yes Kainoa, no zombie babies allowed.”


Now it’s your turn!

I am beyond thrilled that I was the first person on the linky this week. THAT NEVER HAPPENS!!! :)

And Kainoa is absolutely right–that does look like a Zombie baby!

Smart kid. And what on earth is that helmet on the Zombie Baby’s head? Maybe the Zombie Baby would need the helmet to protect his brains when he falls out of the cart his Zombie Mom isn’t supposed to put him in.

That’s fabulous! I had a student finish her “If I were President” paragraph with “I am _____ and I improved this message!” I about died!

Phew. Good lookin’ out, Target. I can’t stand to get mauled by zombie babies while I’m trying to find a perfect-fit cardigan :) Thanks for sharing. Made me smile, too!

Love the sign interpretation :) #zombiebaby

Ginny Marie November 15, 2012 at 5:10 am

That’s definitely what that sign means!

Bridget @ Le. Rheims November 15, 2012 at 5:32 am

LOL I love it. My oldest always makes up silly things about those stupid and rarely clear warning pictures. :)

Sue November 15, 2012 at 5:44 am

That’s outstanding. I shared it with The Small One. He requests a playdate with Kainoa.

I love the smiling prompt this week. It is SO important to find things to make you smile or laugh…life is very short. Have a great weekend.

Kim@Co-Pilot Mom November 15, 2012 at 6:17 am

This made me laugh out loud this morning. My littlest is always looking at those little pictures on carts and toys. I’ll be on the look out for zombie babies. :)

What a hoot, kids really say what is on their minds and it is so funny. This made me smile today.

Ha!! Gotta love weird icons. Here’s my favorite I found a while back – I’ll let you just roll with it ->> http://twitpic.com/9o6ogt

Hilarious! My boys, and the rest of the world it seems, have gone zombie crazy.

Gingerj November 15, 2012 at 7:11 am

I would have totally saw that as the meaning of that sign as well…zombiue lovers think alike I suppose! LOL!

Raine November 15, 2012 at 8:05 am

haha that is cute!

I feel like he should get some extra swag for that one. I always love it when my two year old puts a towel over his face and says, “I’m a zombie!!”

Runnermom-jen November 15, 2012 at 8:53 am

Hahaha!! That baby DOES look like a zombie ;)
P.S. Kainoa is so cute!

Kenya G. Johnson November 15, 2012 at 9:21 am

LOL! Aside for the zombie pic, 30 bags? I hope it was a super Target ;-)

twisterfish November 15, 2012 at 9:42 am

Love it!

Andrea November 15, 2012 at 10:21 am

:) those darn zombie babies! And their zombie parents… sheesh!

Jennifer November 15, 2012 at 12:08 pm

That’s hilarious. I love when kids misunderstand stuff in a funny way.

kelley November 15, 2012 at 3:47 pm

that’s funny–but the baby does look like a zombie. kelley—the road goes ever ever on

Hilarious!!! Don’t you love the way kids interpret things? Very often I find them to be more on the money than anyone!

Charity Deleon November 20, 2012 at 7:56 pm
