The most dangerous place on Vashon to take a toddler

It will not kill them.

It might make you want to kill them.

It will bring them to the brink of explosion.

It will cause them to wail, scream, and cry.

As they turn into little kids this place can still hold the power to make them pout, whine, and bully.

But for the toddler.  .  . the danger is right there. It is in there face waiting for them to discover it's lure.

You will not be able to untangle them from the vines of attraction.

The Vashon Pharmacy.

Seriously folks the Vashon Pharmacy has some toys for the kiddos to play with.  The selection is basically made for grandparents hunting for something special or parents trying to scout a good birthday present for the party that they forgot to RSVP for and are now feeling guilty and thus willing to spend a tad bit more.

But taking my 18 month old to the Pharmacy while he plays with the train table or pushed the shopping cart, or rings the bells or whatever he does is utterly brutal.

Dangerous folks. Serious emotional danger.
