No Return Policy

baby's bracelet tag

My three-year-old son stared in horror as I delicately cut my newborn twins’ hospital ID bracelets off with a manicuring scissors so I could scrapbook them.

As he burst into tears, I calmly reassured him that I hadn’t harmed his new siblings and, in fact, they slept through the whole thing. But that wasn’t the problem for a toddler who had been dragged on one too many bathing suit shopping trips with Mom.

“You took off their price tags,” he shrieked. “Now you can’t return them!”

    That reminds me of when our oldest wanted to trade her new baby sister in for a cat. She was heartbroken when she found out we couldn’t.

      Laughing…. No returns OR trade-ins in real life.
