Surely you’ll be seeing this on YouTube

This morning the little guy and I had to stop by his Occupational Therapist’s office to pick up a new CD for his Therapeutic Listening program. While we were there he managed to generate a hugely poopy diaper. I was able to change it there but couldn’t leave in the OT’s office trash so we took it with us thinking we’d dispose of it at the next stop. I put it in a bag in the car and headed off to Target since I needed to pick up a few things. Now the whole baby/shopping cart process is difficult enough; I have to attempt to park near enough to a cart rack so I can grab one quickly before taking little guy out of the car so I can get it loaded it with anything I need (diaper bag, store returns and in this case, a bag with a poopy diaper) as well as put on the shopping cart seat cover. So, I’d managed to throw in the stuff I needed and get the cover on the seat and parked the cart near the car trying to get it to “stay” which is always a battle. In this particular case, I lost. As I was unbuckling the little guy from his car seat I looked out the back window and saw a green seat covered shopping cart rolling by behind the car then picking up speed as it raced through the parking lot. In this moment I uttered an unfortunate phrase which I only hope little guy does not pick up or demonstrate at his next Speech Therapy session. I knew I couldn’t run after the cart real quick and leave the little guy because he was totally unbuckled at this point. So, I grabbed him quickly in one arm, my purse in the other, while attempting to sprint through the Target parking lot after a runaway cart carrying my diaper bag and a poopy diaper which has now picked up some serious speed. I have no idea how I managed to catch this thing but I did --just as it was about to hit a car which surely contained some very amused passengers. Now, if Target’s security cameras caught this scene surely this is a YouTube video waiting to happen. I’d also be surprised if the driver of the white car didn’t whip out their cell phone and try to capture this incident. I know I would have. This is blog fodder at its best right here folks. I can’t make this stuff up.

That's one of those mental films you'll run for years... just don't be surprised if it cracks you up at the most unfortunate moments!

Hey, if we SAHMs can't keep a sense of humor, we're sunk, right??

I would've grabbed the diaper bag and sent the poopy diaper on it's way. :)
