For anybody who has been on the edge of their seat since this post, I thought I'd go ahead and let you all know that everything turned out awesome. The hospital sent out a strongly worded email to employees about not
giving babies cancer smoking by the playground. Daycare drop offs and pick ups got a lot less carcinogenic and confrontrational. And recently the hospital administrators put up more signs (which everyone agreed is not a magic cure-all, but after all the work Seton did to emphasize the policy, we didn't need any magic). But every little bit helps. Like this adorable sign!
I feel like I should emphasize the fact that I don't hate smokers. Except the hospital employees/smokers who were super rude when I told them that they were actually smoking in front of a playground full of kids. I maybe sort of hate them. Also, I hate cigarettes. And tobacco companies. And their lobbysts. And stupidly placed smoking sections.
