Here is one to add to my ever growing list of embarrassing moments. I went to babysit this morning for a community choir that a few of my friends sing in. In the past, I have done this regularly, but today I was just filling in for Abbey, who is having her baby today. It was the first time I have done this with the girls in tow. I had to pack a lunch for everyone because the women in the choir were performing in a concert and then going out to lunch, as they do once a season.
So, I was getting the girls and Jacob out of the car. Being that the girls are 16 months old, of course they both want to dart across the parking lot. I give Jacob one bag that has our drinks in it to carry. I set the diaper bag (with the rest of our lunches, my cell phone, diapers, etc.) on the passenger seat and put my keys in it to free up a hand. All of this while trying to hold the girls to keep them from running in two directions. I close the door and then hear the locks engaging as I remember hitting the lock after I opened the door originally. Of course, they diaper bag is still on the passenger seat- with my keys- door locked. I feel panic start to rise, but I think- well, Aaron works just 10 minutes down the road. He could probably come unlock it for me. So, I go into the nursery where several moms are waiting for me (I was a few minutes late as it was). I explain my stupidity and one of them lets me borrow her phone to call Aaron. Aaron says he will be there shortly. Yay! He's my hero!
Aaron pops his head in the door about 15 minutes later, hands me the rescued diaper bag and tells me that the drivers side window was down.... All I had to do was reach in and unlock it!
Sometimes these blonde roots go deep..... I apologize to Aaron, who actually finds this quite funny, despite the fact I took him away from work for no reason. But, hey, at least I kept the girls from running out into traffic!
