ME!!! A few days ago, I took lunch to a friend whose son is having health problems. Since he is quarantined to his house and they aren't allowed visitors, I figured I could just leave Jayna in the running car and drop the food off at the door. Well, Jayna was asleep, so I did just that. However, I forget that I talk... A LOT! You would think I'd know myself by now, but no.
So I stood at the door and we talked for a while and in the middle of talking to my friend, I got a sick feeling in my stomach that said, "Jayna is probably screaming and puking all over herself right now," but instead of listening, I told myself that she was asleep and fine. Besides, the car was just right there in front of the house. Well, after I finally couldn't ignore my gut anymore, I dragged myself away from the conversation and as I approached the car I could see the pure terror in my child's eyes. I ripped open the door only to find a screaming child that was screaming so hard she was hoarse... :( I couldn't believe it! I felt like the worst mother ever and about started bawling myself. I tried to console her, but no consoling would be had. I drove home as fast as I could and pulled her out and held her, and didn't let her go for at least an hour. Man, that was stupid! Always listen to your gut!
