Steve and I were parents of a 4 year old girl for about 2 seconds a week ago. Though brief, I think we learned a lot about parenthood in that time.
We were in the dairy section in wal-mart, strolling along, chatting about how mad I was that wal-mart had the audacity to run out of 2% milk.
In the midst of my rant about wal-mart,suddenly there was a little girl, holding on to our cart with one hand, like she belonged to us.
She must have wandered away from her mom, by basically walking backwards and just assumed that any cart near her was her mom's. Rookie mistake.
We didn't want to startle the poor thing when she realized we were in fact not her mother - so I cleverly said to her "We're not your mom! hahaha!"
Then she ran away.
Thank you little girl for teaching us not to let our unborn children latch on to other people's grocery carts.
