It's late at night; about 9 as I recall. I run into the market leaving the little one in the car; entering the market I hear : ..."will the lady who left her son in the car please go back to the car..." ... I casually slinked out of the market; hoping no one suspected it was me...you think?
The kid falls asleep in the backseat; a good time to run into the appliance store; leaving him in the car with all the windows rolled up to protect him from any predators. We return to the car; find him crying; his face beet red from waning oxygen levels. I still see his face in my memories to this day...it was that scary.
Okay, we go to another appliance store when the kid was younger; this time in an old neighborhood. He has to take a pee so I take him to the restroom in the store. The room is dark; I flip on the light switch; and there covering the floor and the walls are literally zillions of roaches (I am not kidding!) ... in every size imaginable.. from teeny tiny to humongous. I remembered them frozen in the light. Instead of leaving; I tried to get my poor kid; who was holding onto me for his dear life; to sit on the toilet. Oh, we left the store to find another restroom but the scar lives on. My son, a cartoonist, drew a pic of that night; us and the roaches; exactly.
Yup, no Mother of the Year award for this lady....but I count myself double lucky for two great sons who care for me; in ways that other mothers might find....a little mean. They have a plan to save money on nursing care by burying me alive in the backyard....how sweet is that?
Talking about 'sweet' .... here's another flexi pouch I tinkered with this week ....
HAPPY MOTHERS' DAY <3
