Mom-Cart Disaster

Yesterday while walking into the grocery store, I noticed the line of "mom-carts."  Now I've never grabbed a mom-cart -- they've always seemed so big and bulky. And quite frankly, I've always found them a little dorky.  But all of that flies out the window when you realize you have a toddler that would probably enjoy that cart.  So in we went:

She seemed to enjoy it well enough, but just a minute or so after being in the store, I hear a "boom" and realize that I'd just run right into a cardboard display.  Thankfully it wasn't one of those displays that had items on it.  So I picked up the display and the manager that just happened to be standing right there assured me that it was okay.  It took that for me to realize that the cart had another bottom section that stuck out significantly farther than the top section.  You'd think I'd be more aware at that point.  You'd think.

After going down a couple more aisles and turning into a new aisle, I feel myself run into something else.  Then I heard a shatter -- yes, glass.  I knocked some kind of marinade off the shelf that seemed to be ECONOMY size.  Now I was embarrassed.  It doesn't help that the same manager was walking down that aisle.  I'm sure she was thinking, "Is this lady for real?" though she still gave me a very friendly smile.

So anyway, of course they take care of the spill like it was nothing, but I was actually a little embarrassed after that.  And I'm not easily embarrassed.  But I got the feeling the people that work there thought I was some kinda freak that couldn't drive a grocery cart. 

So, in this case, it wasn't the mom-cart that was "dorky" -- it was the driver!

Here are a few phone pics I took of Morgan as she played outside with Uncle Tommie, who stopped by yesterday.  Of course she's all in the neighbors' yard going up and down the hill between the two yards.

And then Tommie let her play (and fall) on the front step. 

And then of course when he brought her in she threw a tantrum and rolled all over the living room floor crying. I have to keep reminding myself that this is just a phase, 'cause I've never been a fan of that "falling-out" stuff.

Morgan's having a great week at school -- no crying when I drop her off.  We're gearing up for a busy weekend, so I'm not sure when I'll post again (didn't plan to post at all this week, but I had to record my experience with the mom-cart).  Remember that you can enter your email address at the top right of the page to be emailed when a new post is up.

Have a good week, everyone!
