Oh Crap!

Today’s FB status update that generated the most number of comments for me, needs mention on my blog: Mala Paul forgot something on my way back home last night - MY DAUGHTER...oh crap!

No kidding. So this is what happened:
I left work and started driving. I had a lot of stuff on my mind. I was thinking how I was in need of some ‘white space’ in my life and was one light away from the freeway when I realized I was actually able to listen to myself think in the peace and quiet of my car. Something was off. I NEVER have peace and quiet in my car. Oh yah, Evani wasn't jabbering behind me—I had forgotten to pick her up from daycare! Thankfully I was within 5 mins of driving distance and was able to make a u-turn.

So all these days of being astonished by cases where parents forgot their kids in the car or somewhere else—now I know. Your mind just shuts off and you experience a moment of bliss.

I am soooo not having another child…
I love you doll and will never forget you ever (or at least will try not to)!

Happy Friday folks!

so what was hubby dear's reaction?

and i can understand what u must have felt at that moment...once my mom too had left me standing on a bus stop and had boarded a bus without me which she had just gone to check the route for!!!But she too had lots on her mind then with baba unwell and my boards nearing and my bro off to US.....I remember scampering off after the bus and managing to board it( i never had any pocket money at that point of time...so it was a race for survival!!!)

So it happens----and i dont love my mom any less for that....

a mom must be very stressed to forget their child...lately, i've been sitting in the front seat while Yogi drives so it's one of our greatest fears to forget Katie in the back seat one of the these days, especially when she's sound asleep :o/

scary!!! but i know what you mean about peace in the car... it's a rare commodity with the squawks and screeches at the back :)

You know, it's really time that you added a new blog post. I check every day but... squat. Harumpf.

Am so glad I read this post. I've been so engrossed in my thoughts I'd take a right instead of a left towards the lil one's daycare and then go "o crap" - thankfully it's a minute away.
