It's safe to call me brilliant again!

Have you ever lost control of your child?

Have you ever tried to put your child in time-out only to have them leave their spot the minute you turn your back?

Have you ever wished for a couple of freaking minutes of quiet! I mean, is it really that much to ask?! a few precious moments of peace?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then I have just the thing for you!

I'm calling it the KCD, or Kid Containment Device.



Simply insert your wound-up, mouthy or out-of-control child into the convenient strap and hang from the nearest tree. It's perfect, too, because the children think it's all fun and games until it's too late to escape. Notice the dejected face of the child in the strap as compared to the happy bouncing of the child on the ground who is anticipating her turn. The bouncing child has no idea...

Brilliance.









Disclaimer:
- I did not punish my children by hanging them from a tree, and I certainly wouldn't recommend it. All the cousins took turns doing this until the eldest cousin was too tired to lift anymore kiddo-o's. Those little whackadoodles were having the time of their lives and would have stayed there all night if they had their way...

LOL! I love it.

What I love most about the picture is sweet hannah, waiting patiently, no jumping, examining the "unit" she is about to get in. Just waiting. Love it. You must call upon your return.

Nikki said...

Hm, I can see how it looks so tempting.

Grand Pooba said...

Looks like a good work out for the parent too. Many benefits!

Kristina P. said...

I love that kids find these kind of these so fun.

TheKitchenWitch said...

Tammy Howard said...

I need two! And maybe a much larger one for my husband.

the ungourmet said...

It's a good thing you added that disclaimer. I was just about to call the authorities! ;0)

Sturgmom said...

Looks like you're having the time of your life! ;)

ck said...

Now if only you'd create one to attach to the walls, like the baby jumpers. We could keep them contained all day!

beth said...

this is awesome. i need five!

D said...

ingenious. I love it.

lizspin said...

Yes, simply brilliant!

Good thing you put that disclaimer 'cause I was about to let you have it! Apparently that is what you do when you disagree with someone's parenting style, you yell at them and tell them they suck! I used to be a fan of just navigating away from the page, but since it is currently the norm to not do that and instead pass judgement and/or ridicule, I think I'll start doing that instead. People who use this technique seem very satisfied with themselves afterward, and I could certainly use some satisfaction:)

I need to get me one!!! hehe

countryfriedmama said...

Where can one acquire one of those items? I have just the tree for it.

angie said...

That is brilliant. I've been trying to develop my own harness for the closet wall. :)

Jen said...

I think this is a fabulous idea. Is there a minimum age and where do you get this fabulous invention.

Zeemaid said...

*LOL* well it's almost as good as the velcro suit and the velcroed wall idea.

;)

Happy Camping.

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

That is just way too funny...and brilliant! ;)

Susie said...

You are brilliant!! Where can I call right now to buy? Hee, hee, hee.

passions and soapboxes said...

Kids always fall for it no matter how silly it sounds. Hang me up in a tree by a strap, why not , sure, mom wouldn't let me get hurt or anything. If they only new.lol

Yaya said...

Lol, like a carnival ride!

Gibby said...

OMG, where can I get one of those?
And wait, do I see you hiding in that camper with a bottle of Pinot??

Pop and Ice said...

Oh, too late, too late for me! Sigh...

faemom said...

Brilliant. But I'm with ck on working out to get one that hangs from a wall. Though we all know she has at least one tree. I don't. I have to sagauros. I'm sure the state would not like that much.

♥ Braja said...

I'M BACK!!! My computer!! It's fixed!! Yes!!

OK I've calmed down now.

Well hell, it's been THREE FREAKIN' WEEKS.

And just so you know? I'm gonna copy and paste this comment and post it on all the blogs I visit....:))))

bernthis said...

send me two God forbid the first one breaks.

ScoMan said...

I'm going to see my niece tomorrow. She is quite often looking to keep playing long after her loveable uncle has lost interest.

Where do I get one of those straps?

Grant said...

Children hanging from a tree are in danger of being eaten by snakes. It's much safer to bury them alive.

K said...

I'd buy one.

LadyFi said...

Ha ha ha! If that really existed, I'm sure we'd all be buying it! ;-)

Bee and Rose said...

I LOVE IT!

i am the diva said...

that looks awesome, they're lucky to have an older cousin to lift them up and stuff!

Suzy said...

me next me next me next

Shan said...

Hey... we have a camping trip coming up. Where can we get one of these... er... em... "child-entertaining" devices? Buahahaha!

Ryan Ashley Scott said...

And where can I get one of these?

Hit 40 said...

Hang your kid in a tree all you want until you feel ready to parent again!! I would totally understand. Just get some other parents on the jury.

Making the Bacon said...

Fabulous, I need one!

Missy said...

My DH just bought a camper! He says it will do wonder for the kids! I like the hang in the tree idea!
