I fell in the drug store today while holding a shopping basket AND my 19 month old!

I was so embarrassed. All the shopping carts were taken, so I chose to carry my 19 month old through the store (to avoid her grabbing stuff off the shelves). Well, I bent down to pick something up, and when I tried to stand again, my knees gave way and I fell! Thankfully, my daughter was ok, but it was very embarrassing.

Has anything THIS embarrassing ever happened to you while you were with your child in public?

  • When my youngest was still a baby in his carseat, I was trying to juggle him, and his 2 year old brother in and out of a dressing room to try on some clothes. Well I needed to put him down so I could rearrange the clothes and grab hold of his brother, and I missed the bench seat and he fell to the floor (he was strapped into his carseat, and wasn't hurt, just shook up a bit). Of course he cried for a good ten minutes after that (even with me holding him now) and my 2 year old was in the cart saying over and over, "You dropped him mommy! He's scared because you dropped him!" I had to finish my shopping, and was so embarrassed every time he said it. Needless to say, trying on clothes is now reserved for when I am child-free at the store.
