I wanted to share a story from yesterday about how I helped a mother out. I was at Wal-Mart and was loading my groceries into the car when I heard this lady cry out, then I heard her child crying. I went over to see if everything was okay, because I could hear her crying to. Her son, 2 years old, fell out of the cart and onto the pavement. His little nose was scratched up a bit, but they were both more shaken than anything. I went back to my car and got 2 cookies and my Mocha Frappe that I'd just bought and gave her son the cookies and her the Frappe. I figured she needed it more than I did. She thanked me profusely and her little boy blew me kisses. It was really sweet. She was a first time Mom and the guilt was obvious in her face, so I shared a few of my own Mommy Mishaps.
She'd had him buckled in (she was behind me in the line), but I guess she'd unbuckled him and was gonna put him in his seat and realized the door was locked. She said she sat him back down to fish the keys out and her tried to climb out.
