S/O: leaving your child in the car?

Let's say you got a random stomach bug that came over you suddenly, and it was a choice between sh*tting your pants or leaving your sleeping child in the car for 5 min or less with the AC on, locked, tinted windows. What do you choose?

I would choose shitting on myself.

I love my Hubby and I am so proud!

Oh well - guess the pants would need to be thrown out - b/c i would NOT leave my child in a car unattended.

It is also totally illegal in my state to leave your child in a running car for ANY reason.

The child would be coming to the bathroom with me. I'd run in and pay for gas with a sleeping child in the car.... but I wouldn't be able to see my car from the bathroom.. and you never know how long THAT type of bathroom trip may take...

This... or wake DS up and take him with me.

I ask because I was in that situation and I tried to take DS in with me, but I didn't make it to the bathroom :-/ my friend said I shouldve just left him in the car since he was asleep.

What sucked the most is I was on a road trip from my parents house to my house and I didn't have any clothes with me(I leave clothes at their house since we visit so much), and I was only halfway there!!!

I ended up using baby wipes to clean up and sitting on a spit up cloth half naked for 2 hours praying i didnr need to stop!

HONESTLY...I'D BE PITCHING THE PANTS...I WILL POST MY STORY AGAIN...

MY MOTHER TOOK MY SON GROCERY SHOPPING...PARKED 2 FEET FROM HER FRONT DOOR, KITCHEN IS JUST INSIDE FRONT DOOR...SHE TOOK IN HALF THE GROCERIES THEN TOOK IN MY SON...AS SHE CAME OUT FOR THE REST OF THE GROCERIES SHE WATCHED THE CAR DRIVE ITSELF BACK INTO A TREE, TURN AROUND AND GO OVER A HILL!!!

THE CAR WAS TOTALED AND APPARENTLY THE GEARS HAD MALFUNCTIONED...WHEN SHE GOT MY SON OUT OF THE CAR, ALL OF HER 110 LBS CAUSED THE CAR TO SHIFT ITSELF INTO REVERSE!!!

2 MINUTES LATER AND MY SON WOULD'VE BEEN OVER THE HILLSIDE...IT ONLY TAKES A MINUTE!!! PLEASE TAKE MY WARNING!!!
