Code Yellow

I found out what a Code Yellow is on Tuesday at Target. That would be a missing child. I took Dylan (18mo old I am babysitting til Feb), Sydney, and Luke into Target to buy new binkie's. I know that I should just get rid of them, but that is another story. Dylan got buckled into the cart without a fuss and sits there totally mellow. Sydney is another story. She hates being restrained in any form. Shopping carts are just a game to see how fast she can get out. While I am struggling trying to get her buckled up Luke had disappeared. I call for him with no answer. I figured he had went in search of toys but they were on the other side of the store from where we were. To make a long story short an employee walked up behind me and I told her I lost my child. She got on her radio, called a Code Yellow, and gave the description. It only took a minute because everyone dropped what they were doing and walked their area's. Another employee walked me to where he was (toys of course!). He was surrounded by about 7 employees. Needless to say no one got out of the cart again. When I left the store I called Jason and told him that we would be living on bread and butter before I went shopping with Sydney and Luke again!

Good Job Target...

I lost Xavier at Dillards one time, I was trying not to freak out but so was. I grabbed an employee to have them help me (Hello I thought they all had a Code Adam or something). She just said, "I haven't seen any little boys" and walked off. So I scrambled all over Dillards for about 10 minutes before I grabbed him. I left very very angry. I hate Dillards.

Um yeah. Bread is good, butter is good. Sounds like a plan! I am super impressed with how quickly they took action and found him. Ally used to freak me out everytime we went clothes shopping. She would always hide up under the center of the clothing racks.
