I was trying to run all my errands while Brynn was in school this morning.
I started off good but was quickly knocked off course. The 1st stop was a dead end that lead me to my 2nd stop which should have been the 1st stop to begin with. It took way longer than it ever should have. My 3rd stop was the downfall. I tried to buy an item with the coupon that I thought I was supposed to be using but the item on the shelf was not the item the coupon was for, in turn I am holding up the only register open, my sister-in-law calls and then shows up, and the people can't figure out how to use the coupon.
I am sure you are wondering when I will get to the point and how the title of this post remotely relates to the story I have telling you...
Addie was beginning, no by this point she was already bored and going crazy. I am trying to keep my cool in all of the chaos and somehow make it to the car because it is now time to go pick Brynn up from school. I put Addie in the carseat. She has managed to get a pen from my purse during the whole ordeal. Instead of being a great, responsible mother that we all know I normally am, I let Addie keep the pen. My reasoning...it will keep her screaming to a minimal on the ride to the school, the school is a short drive, and there is no way she will be able to work the thing.
I know...you are all thinking "Are you crazy?" "Who gives a 16 month old a pen to hold?"
Yeah...I know...BIG BIG mistake!!!
The results when I arrived at the school...
She had it on both her hands too!! At least she managed to keep it off her clothes. I am not sure how but she did.
What could I say...NOTHING...I just laughed at the whole situation...after all it was my fault...
WHO GIVES A 16 MONTH OLD A PEN???
