That moment when you stop and think “I might be going crazy”. We all have those moments- right? Mine was yesterday.
I offered to drive Jeremy to work and figured I’d stop at the grocery store for coffee and a few things I needed for dinner. Everything was great until we were leaving and I wouldn’t let Madeleine touch the star balloon. Rookie mistake. She cried and did that stiff board type thing toddlers do when they don’t want to go back in the car seat.
A little later I had to run to Lowes.. It was close to nap time and the whole car ride I was thinking after this morning I might be crazy for doing this..But they have the fun race car carts and I had the wrap ready to go for Eloise. We were in and out super fast but for some reason I decided to leave the cart inside the store and walk Madeleine back to the car. Rookie mistake number two. Here I am dragging my toddler who is now screaming “HELP! DADDY HELP!” through a crowded parking lot. It was basically the mom walk of shame. And really- who taught her to do that?! I’m surprised the cops didn’t show up.
When I got home and everyone was happy I sat down to check Facebook and noticed someone posted about Mosquitos having west nile near us. Now I should have mentioned all of the bugs bites Madeleine has and how she’s been running a fever on and off for a few days a bit earlier. I picked up the phone and called Jeremy because obviously he needed to know our child has west nile. After that I called the doctors office to let them know the same. The moment is came out of my mouth to the nurse is when I realized “shit. I am crazy”. I prayed she didn’t hear me but she did. She might have even chuckled a little bit and I’m sure she probably put something in our file to note just how nuts I sounded.
And thats fine. It’s not the first time I let my crazy shine through and I’m sure it won’t be the last. At least I got a good laugh out of it.
Oh, and it isn’t west nile. *hand clap*
