The Crazy Suburban Mom: To prove why having the buttons isn't a total waste...

To prove why having the buttons isn't a total waste...

See this?


That's my key chain.

Well, my keys plus my wallet plus other assorted charms and attached paraphernalia. My family has taken umbrage to it for quite some time. Like, if we are in my van but I'm not driving, no one will use 'Mommy's keys'. Like they are some freaky thing. My keys are apparently that thing that must not be touched.

Something about it banging on their right leg (resulting in severe bruising). Or some such nonsense. Anyway. I weighed it about a week ago and granted there was change (okay, a lot of change. Okay, the normal amount of change... ) in there, but still... The pound and a half it weighed gave me pause.

Perhaps my family had a point. It's what got me going making those key fob things in the first place. I thought it might be time to move to an actual wallet and split up the keys... So I give you...


I'm also sure that the cashiers will no longer look at me like, You have GOT to be freaking kidding me, when I hand them that whole fa-la-la so they can swipe the customer loyalty tag thingy.

And the good news is I still have...

I know I"m a month late but all that weight is NOT good for your ignition! leave the keys on one key loop and the doodads on the other. sorry OCD kicked in there.
