Not a good church toy

Today at church it was just me, Grant & Collin. Sacrament Meeting went pretty well for the first while but then Collin started to get a little antsy and grumpy. I had offered him everything I had in the church bag to play with and some animal crackers but he just grumpily threw them on the floor and started to cry. I didn't want to take him out because I would've had to take Grant with me too. Feeling desperate I found the van keys and handed them over. Winner!! He loved playing with them. He was pushing buttons like a mad man and it kept him quiet and entertained for a good 10 minutes. We used to let Scotty play with our Accord key all the time in church and nothing ever happened with the car. Well, apparently the Odyssey remote is stronger or something, because when I came out of church all of the windows were rolled down. Being slightly frazzled after going solo, plus a kind of crazy day in the nursery, and not wanting to root around in my stuffed bag for the keys, I reached through the open window and unlocked the door which then started the horn blaring and the lights flashing! Collin and Grant FREAKED and started screaming, but I had to set Collin down to try to get it to stop. Of course, people rushed over to pick up my screaming babies while I fumbled around trying to get the dang thing to stop. I was so embarrassed!! Luckily most people had left church already and the ward that was in the building had just finished Sacrament Meeting. Collin screamed for a good while even after the honking stopped. I was thoroughly embarrassed and have certainly learned my lesson!

Sounds like you need to get him his own remote that does not really do anything. And don't be embarrased, if they care about you, they understand and if they don't care about you, they don't matter.;)

Hey, we've all done it! I guess there was a guy yesterday at the cemetery that couldn't get his to stop no matter what he did and finally drove it down the street still blaring! It was just Boston and Shauna, nobody to be embarrassed by! Giggling. We love ya! I hope Kenz was nice in nursery. I know all about going solo, so if you ever need a commiseration buddy, holler my way!
