Worst mom of the year goes to!!!

ME. Today. It was bad. So today me and my mom and sister and of course emerson too, drove out to a craft store to get some things for my sister because she's on the homecoming court. So we get there, and emerson had just fallen asleep. I didn't really wanna go in, so I decided I would just stay in the car with emerson. So I was in the back seat with her and the car was on(with the air on). Soon as my mom and sister walked into the store the car alarm started going off. It took me awhile to realize that it was our car. So i figured maybe my sister was just trying to be silly and set it off from inside, then i realized she couldn't because the keys were still in the ignition. So then i thought, well maybe it's because the doors aren't locked, so I locked all the doors. It was still going off. So then I thought, maybe a button got pressed in the front seat, so I decided I would get up in the front seat. Well, I got out of the back seat, closed the door. And tried to open the front door. It was locked. All 4 doors were locked. Emerson was still sound asleep in her car seat and thank the lord that the car and air conditioner was on! So i called my mom and they came out of the store. We were debating what to do. Call the cops- mom told me I could be arrested for child endangerment. So I called hunter at work - he got off in like 10 mins, so he was gonna get the spare key and bring it to us. REMEMBER the air conditioner was on! If it wasn't i would've probably just thrown a rock in the window. But as I was on the phone with hunter, a man came up and asked us if we locked the keys in our car. He was a lock smith, and had a mini kit in his personal car. Luckily he got it open in like 2 minutes! and he didn't charge us! I'm just so thankful there are still good people in this world! And i'm so so so thankful we didn't turn off the car! But it made me feel like a horrible mom. But at least she is safe now!


  1. Awe don't feel bad!!! Someone I know did that just yesterday! She was driving her boyfriends car and didn't realize you can lock the doors from the keys. She gave her son the keys to play with while she loaded him in and everything. She shut his door and went to get in and it locked her out! She had to call the cops and they unlocked it.

    Oh and.. How hot is it where you live? I live in southern Ohio and we had to wear long sleeves and jackets today. The high was only 62 here today.

  2. You are NOT a bad mom. We all make mistakes. That is lucky that the man was there to help you guys! I don't think the cops would have arrested you if you would have explained the situation to them though.

    It was like 75 here today wasn't it?

  3. Don't feel bad. Trust me. I would have done the same thing. I almost did-RECENTLY, and the air wasn't even on. Luckily Sam was not in the car when I did it, but I was about to put her in.

    You will do that sort of thing the rest of your "Momhood." Just remember you are definitely not going to be the only one who has done it.

    One of my biggest problems when Sam was little, I always forgot to bring bottles for Samantha when we went places. She would scream and scream until we were able to get her a bottle.

  4. I think this is among the most vital info for me. And i am glad reading your article.
    But should remark on some general things, The website style is ideal, the articles is really excellent : D.

    Good job, cheers
