Public Service Announcement
You know those warnings on the shopping carts at the store? I always thought those were for idiots. Well...they're not--or maybe I AM an idiot.
A few months back the boys were hanging off the cart and tipped it over, with Ava in her car seat whom we fortunately, caught before she fell. Not my finest moment at Publix.
Today, I was at my idiocy again. Ava was strapped in the front, and like usual, she climbed out of the seatbelt. She was sitting down and Andrew was in the cart right behind her. I walked halfway down the isle to get something when Andrew called out, "Mom, Ava's falling out."
I flip around to see that her entire body has fallen through one of the leg holes and Andrew managed to catch her by the head. It was terrifying, but I grabbed her and she was no worse for the wear. Thanks heaven's for a good big brother who is very protective of his baby sister.
The Public service announcement??-- actually there are two.
1)The warnings on shopping carts are there for a reason
2) Kristin is one of those idiots.
So.....the solution to this series of unfortunate events?....leave the kids home with Colonel Mustard and go shopping by myself. Problem solved!
