****If you are looking for my Sizzling Summer its one post down****
My blog buddy Domestic Spaz is having a little get together over at her place. She has a friend who is expecting a new baby in December. Her first, so she is a bit scared about the whole mommy thing. Oh weren't we all! :) She wants us to give a story of a parenting boo boo, a lack in judgement, a mistake, maybe and uh-oh. Well let me tell you, I have plenty!!! For this particular post, I am going to give you a story about Little Logan. He is my third, so even a mommy who has been there already has her moments.
Logan was probably about 6 months old and we were on a shopping trip to Costco. I was there with my friend Lisa. (Hi Lisa!! She reads this, but doesn't ever comment. She is a lurker.) I can't remember if her daughter Kassi was with us or not. Anyway, we were going down the aisle and had stopped to look at something. I had Logan in a stroller and Lisa had a buggy. We were standing there talking, and had been in that spot for a few minutes. As we decide to move on down the aisle, I noticed that the stroller would not move. Something was blocking it. So I look to the front of the stroller, and notice a precious 6 month old Little Logan on the concrete floor of Costco. He had gotten through the straps and had slid out of the stroller, at 6 months old. This scared the snot out of me. We also got really tickled! I mean what if I had decided to just pull my stroller backwards and go on down the aisle the other way? Would they have come over the intercom and announced "whoever forgot your baby on aisle 4 please come pick him up at the service desk". I still get tickled thinking about it. Should you get tickled about almost leaving your baby in an aisle in the store, because you did not know he crawled out?
He has always been an active little boy. He started walking at 9 months old and has not slowed down since. You just never know what that boy will get into, and he has always been this way. Would ya'll look at his little face, it has stinker written all over it....
And it still does!
So friend of Domestic Spaz, it will be ok. You will know exactly what to do. It will just come natural. Cherish even these little moments, that may seem so scary to you. It is the best experience you will ever have.
