THAT Time Has Come.... *Post Edit*

About 6 years ago Target changed their prescription drug bottles (can I just stop right here and mention how much I simply ADORE Target? Okay, just had to get that out there :) I personally loved the new design, and with the color-code system (each member of the family has their own color so meds don't get mixed up) it was even better. With 2 tiny children, and just having found out I was pregnant with my 3rd, we were purchasing quite a few medications at our house on a yearly basis. I remember choosing out which color each of us would have and when the time came that any one of us would need a prescription filled, letting the pharmacy know which color went with who.

Well, around the time Daphne was born, I remember thinking "Hmmmm, we've used up 5 of the 6 colors. I wonder what will happen when I have 2 more kids? What will they do?"

So then Bear came along and with that, we had used up all 6 colors that the Target Pharmacy offeres: Me:Red

Well, today I had to take Magnus to the doctor because he's been sick the past week and not getting better. We found out he has double ear AND eye infections. Poor baby. I received 2 prescriptions for the little guy and on the way home stopped at Target.

Right then , I remembered something....we had no colors left! What were they going to do?! I also had to admit to myself that I am a total NERD for thinking about this the past 6 years and that I was finally going to find out what would happen!!! Are you as excited as me to find out?!?!

Well, that's just what you're going to have to do. Wait with me. Because I was in a rush and dropped them off because I knew Andy would be going by there later and could pick them up.

I do have to mention though, when I explained the situation to the pharmacy tech, he just laughed and laughed and thought it was so funny that I had 7 people in my family and that he wasn't sure what they would do..... I know you're all on pins and needles waiting to find out what happens!!

Total let-down to my expectations.... they gave Magnus the color orange. So, my two youngest are both orange. That is not very creative. I am a bit disappointed.... ;)

LOL TOO FUNNY! Even though its totally out of the way, I, too LOVE going to Target Pharmacy. LOVE the color coded bottle necks. Van's pediatrician and I were just talking about the color coded bottles a few weeks ago! Also I LOVE their bottles of liquid meds that come with the syringe! Genius!

Ok, I'll admit right now that the first time I filled a liquid med for the kids there, I totally tore the plastic cap (w/hole) from the bottle because I couldn't figure it out! I felt SO stupid when Justin explained it to me and I had to go back to the pharmacy to have it put into a new bottle.

What a blonde.
