Things that should exist, but haven't been invented yet

1. Self cleaning kitchen floors.

2. Seat belts for children at restaurants.
(Yes, I'm talking to you, little league baseball team who ate in the same restaurant that we did, and sat the kids at their own table near us while the parents enjoyed a lovely meal at a table of their own, away from said children (and when I say "sat" I mean that each of the kids technically had their own chair, even though they didn't really use it to sit in)

3. Self cleaning bathrooms.

When did you change your template? Because I just changed mine this week to the same one! I swear, I didn't copy you - we just have the same taste!

Disposable kitchen floors should be on that list.

I would add to that list .. self-emptying dishwashers and self-watering plants.

I am glad I've never had dinner at a restaurant beside a sports team of children.

Isn't that why you have kids?

My mom had the self cleaning bathrooms and kitchen floors…they were called children.

4. Robotic lawn mowers (ala.. Rumba).

5. Automatic kid alert, grab and dress for school (ala...Jetsons).

6. Portable Cone of Silence for said sports kids and sundry other obnoxous persons (ala..Get Smart).

How could such an advanced civilization have missed such obvious inventions and why are there no colonies on Mars yet?

I am so with you on the restaurant thing. I usually want to ask the hostess to sit us in a "child-free" area of the restaurant.

Mmmm....self-cleaning bathrooms....I'm dreaming here. I always told Robert that if we ever won the lottery, the very first thing I would do is hire a cleaning service and NEVER SCRUB A TOILET AGAIN!!

Clearly that has not happened yet.

They have self cleaning out house type things in Scotland. So I know it is possible!!! You have to pay to use them, and the whole thing washes down with hot water as soon as you shut the door when you are done. Really cool!!

I like this list. And sadly, there were years that I was the obnoxious little league parent that made the boys sit at a different table. Sorry....
