Did You Forget About Your NB's?

When DS was born, I'd sometimes forget I had a baby when he was sleeping until he cried.   A funny time was when I was going through TSA with DS and my Dad when DS was a couple of months old.  My Dad tossed his carry on into the stroller on top of LO.  He forgot there was a baby in there, he momentarily thought it was a cart.  DS didn't even wake up.  LOL.  Share your funny NB stories if you have them.  (I'm watching the Blind Side and crying, so I need a laugh).

I never did but I did think I forgot my daughter once the first time I let someone else get her in the car. I started bawling thinking I forgot her.

A few weeks after I returned to work after maternity leave with DS, I was picking DD up from daycare. After she grabbed her things I said, "Ok, let's go get your brother!" She started laughing and pointed at me because I was holding him already. :/

I've forgotten to strap in DD's carseat once...I just about died. She pushed the seatbelt button once and I had no idea til I took a turn, and she started laughing hysterically....I check the mirror, and she's in the carseat, and the whole thing is laying SIDEWAYS!! I almost got run over trying to pull over. LOL

When DD was about a month old, I was trying to get her into the carseat, and the handle was up. I ended up bashing the back of her poor little head on the handle...she never even cried, just got this almost cross eyed look on her face for a minute. I thought I knocked her retarded for a minute. LOL

My newborns never let me forget I had them haha. :-/

But a few times I've had the "OMFG did I drop them off at daycare or are they still in the back seat?!" feeling on the way to work.

And once I got so wrapped up in work I forgot to leave and pick up ODS from preschool and they had to call me. I felt like shit and was bawling, but he was fine playing with the after care kids.

I never forgot about him, but the first night home from the hospital he would not quit crying. I hadnt slept much in 5 days. Exdh wasnt being any help just his typical ass self.

I ran to my moms room and practically threw Kid at my mom and said "take him or im getting divorced." O_o

No, I always felt like I had a very awkward guest who didn't talk much but probably expected something from me. I read him East of Eden by Steinbeck when I brought him home from the hospital because I felt like there should be some communication but I didn't know what to say.

You. Crack. Me. Up.

I never forgot him, but I told my husband for about the first 3 weeks I felt like I was babysitting somebody else's kid. It was a bizarre feeling.

I remember thinking "Well, when they come get him, I'll vacuum," and then I'd realize no one was coming to get him.

And don't laugh! That's the kid that ended up being a genius and I think early Steinbeck exposure did it. The 2nd kid, who was only exposed to me laying on the couch and crying while the oldest watched Wonder Pets, is not a genius.
