Stay-At-Target Mom

I recently told my kids I wanted to become a stay-at-home mom.


“How is that even possible? We’re too old for that.”


“Oh, I never said I wanted to stay home with you. I just want to stay home.”

I mean, seriously. I’ll always be a mom. I’m just tired and need a break.

The idea of having free time in the day is, so…

Actually, scratch that.

I want to be a Stay-at-Target Mom.


That way I won’t have to do laundry.

Plus, have you seen the stuff they have?

Joyous aisles filled with…

Hedgehog heaven!

It’s too much for the senses!

Oh, and they have that whole ‘Target run’ thing. So if you tell somebody you went for a Target run and just say the word Target really softly and quickly, they’ll think you went for a proper, full-on, pavement-pounding run and look at you all on-board with exercise!

And, when your husband calls you in the day (don’t rub it in if you have one), you can say you’re doing some ‘Target’ practice and he’ll be all cool with your new Katniss Everdeen lifestyle.

It’s really too good to be true.

So who’s with me?

Who wants to become a Stay-at-Target mom?

Perhaps we’ll even call ourselves something catchy. Like ‘The Targeters.’

Do I hear a “Clean up in aisle three?”



*disclaimer* Target did not pay me for this endorsement. My obsession with Target is all my own doing. However, if Target would like to pay me for this endorsement, I’d be okay with that. I’d even be okay with just the hedgehog lamp.

    I’m in!! We could hang out in the arts and crafts aisle for a few hours and make lots of pretty art, then yell “clean up on aisle 5!” Then head over to the pillow aisle with our chips and sodas for an afternoon nap. And play house and decorate, decorate, decorate!

    I love Target! I could stay there all day. All my friends say the same. It’s the first place I go to relax. It must be something about their organization and comforting American products. 🙂

    What did I do before Target? I can grab my coffee, buy underwear and fashionable home goods from Nate Berkus all in one stop! I used to “run to Target” when my kids were little
    and leave them home with my husband. He just let me go to Target to buy Diapers but I always came home with so much more!

      So true! Target is heaven.
