What bad mommy moment, could possibly involve the following components:
twin toddlers, a parked car and a set of car keys?
Yup, my twins got locked in the car. I am so embarrassed to even admit that THIS bad mommy moment happened to me!
Cameron was playing with the keys while I put his brother Mason in the car. I closed the door and tried to open mine, only it didn’t budge. I realized in that instant that we were in trouble, but I tried all the locks anyway.
When I got around to Cameron’s side he was all smiles. When I asked him to open the door with the button, he pointed down on the ground between the seats. He looked extremely mischievous in that moment, let me tell you! I had (stupidly) given him my keys to hold, as he likes to push the button on the keys that makes the horn sound (so that you can find your car easily).
Well apparently he hit the lock button too, and when I put Mason in and closed the door I sealed them in there!
Thank heavens my hubby was home with the spare key and he was able to come rescue us within 15 minutes!! (Thanks hubby!)
But in those 15 minutes the kids went from this:
As I was writing this it hit me that this isn’t the first time something like this happened to us. But last time at least I had the dog, Carrie Bradshaw, to blame, and it was much funnier! (Read about it here). When I searched back in my blog for the post, I realized it was almost a year ago to the day. Oh please Lord, let this not be a yearly occurrence! Please let me learn from my mistake THIS time!!!
I guess I have no advice to give, since I clearly am not clever enough to avoid this situation TWICE!
All I can say is that if you don’t think it can happen to you (I hope you are right) but think again, because it probably will 😉 LOL
And hopefully your phone will be on the outside with you and not inside with the kiddos!
