Nursing a Costco Receipt
This is the best thing I've read all day...
Brought a big smile to my own face. :)
If you aren't familiar with Costco stores -- they regularly check your receipt as you leave the front doors and will frequently draw a little smiley faces on them (instead of just the usual 'this one's okay' mark of approval). Or, the smiley faces could instead take the forms of a princess...a butterfly...a dancing robot... You get the picture.
Well, Thingamababy wrote (way back in Jan 2007 but I just found it today) that his 2 1/2 year old daughter at the time would often take her smiley face Costco receipt as they left the store and hold it up to her chest.
What was she doing? Her father inquired.
"Giving my smiley face momma milk!"
Toddlers emulate what they watch their parents (or media!) doing. And while we have witnessed that almost anything can be fashioned into a weapon by those who (on average) watch far too many violent murderous scenes in their first years of life... who knew that a Costco receipt would be made into a tenderly nursed babe!? Love it!
