Ahh I feel like the worst mom ever!

So my son and I were in a rush earlier to get to my fiances house before he had to leave for work and while I was packing his diaper bag I walked off and forgot the wipes on the table. Well I just ran up to the Dollar General and my card got declined twice, and I know I had at least 4 dollars in there and the wipes were only $1.86. Now I feel absolutely terrible because I can't even afford to buy the cheap generic wipes =[ Any ideas on what I should do?

  • Wet some napkins and use that. Or go to an ATM, and i guess you can overdraft...

  • If your at home use toilet paper and then a wet washcloth, if out and about, using a public restroom, use wet paper towels. That's about all the advice I can give on what else to use. I'm sure we've all been there, I know I have, worried how I was going to pay for diapers and such. Doesn't make you a bad mom.
