Another true story...
The back story: Cooper promptly removes his shoes and socks during any drive so I'm always putting them back on when we reach our destination. Really, I should just wait to put shoes and socks on him but truly, I'm worried that I'll leave the house without them if they're not physically on his body. I swear, motherhood has made my brain work slower!
So, it rained terribly all day yesterday in Georgia. I'm talking about bend your umbrella in half rain, people! But, I wanted to take Cooper to storytime at the library before meeting up with some mommy friends for lunch. We get to the library and I run to the backseat and shut the door to keep the rain from soaking both of us so that I can put his shoes and socks back on. Then, it occurs to me that the child-lock is on. Yes, people I had locked myself in the back of the car! As you can tell from the picture that Cooper is still rear-facing and in the middle so I had to crawl over his carseat to get to the other side and thank the good Lord that door was unlocked! Listen, I am almost 33 and out of shape so I was dreading how I was going to crawl to the front if the other door was locked, too! On top of all this, I get ready to get Cooper out of the car and my umbrella is jerked out of my hands by the freaking wind so I'm running throught the library parking lot in the pouring rain with my poor child sitting in the car. It was quite the adventure! Luckily, I didn't cuss not once...well, in front of Cooper anyway!
I think everyone else was busy getting their kids into the library so I'm hoping my audience to this spectacular show was very small...
Only me! Or, you could all make me feel better and tell me about some of your crazy mommy moments!
