anyone know what this is? anyone want to take a stab?
THAT my friends, is day-after-christmas shopping at its very worst. THAT is a careless mother, rushing in to a Christmas store that had put all its Christmas stuff at 50% off…and leaving her baby in the car. sleeping.
i don’t even have the words.
i waited to see if it was Britney Spears, and when i saw that it wasn’t, i shook my head at her and gave her the stink-eye. she’s lucky i didn’t remember her licence plate because i was going to report her sorry ass.
i had a quick flashback to my days when i had two babies under 2. when i used to carry one on my arm and put one in the stroller and schlep them out to buy milk…or when i’d stay home in the dead on winter because it was making me tired just thinking about bundling the two of them up and taking them in and out of the carseat…and this mother only had ONE. and he was SLEEPING. in an infant seat. how hard would it have been to press the wee button on the seat, pick it up, and carry it into the store?
was it laziness? was it ignorance? was it just her not wanting to have to fight her way through the other boxing day shoppers with an infant seat in tow?
i’m appalled today.
Isabella is too.
we are having a big ole blast here in Atlanta. My brother and sister in law arrived today with my nieces Lauren and Evie…so, of course, i’m in heaven…
i’m also in pajamas (oh, you are so loving that hoodie, aren’t you?? target $11!!) and no make-up…but you aren’t EXACTLY looking at me, are you??? yes. i love to kiss babies. and sure, my ovaries are aching a little bit…but as Rachel and i were talking about this evening…my body is telling me three, and hers is telling her four. my shop is CLOSED.
you can see more photos from Chrismukah 2007 on my flickr, of course.
