Worst mommy moment today

So this evening I went to the church to drop my daughter off for Awana.  I got both kids out of the car and went in the church for a few minutes.  I said my good bye's and went out to my car and buckled my son in his car seat and shut the door.  I walked over to my door and went to open it up and it was locked.  I frantically ran to all the doors and they were all locked!  I looked back in the window and saw my keys on my seat.  How in the world did I lock the door after buckling my son in???    :(  OH NO!!!  So I went in the church calmly and was looking for a hanger.  I found my husband and told him and what happened and he freaked out a little bit.  My hubby found some wire and after about 10 minutes of him and another guy trying they got the door opened!! I was so thankful when they opened the door.  I am happy Titus did not get worried but only whined a little bit until I played peek a boo outside his window.  I felt so terrible!

So let's hear your oops moment as a mommy!  


I did this last month with both kids in the car. It was in our garage. Luckily my husband works 10 minutes away and made it home immediately. I entertained the kids with bubbles I found on the shelf in the garage and peek a boo. Actually, half the time they ignored me and giggled at each other.... I felt TERRIBLE, though.
Glad your hubby was not far. I am so thankful that I was not at some random store!

That would be so scary!! Glad that it worked out ok.

I always put my keys on top of the car so I can't lock them in. So far, that's worked for me.

One time my 2 year old locked me out of the house when I stepped out to get our mail. My husband was at work. It took me half an hour to talk him into unlocking it. He just waved at me out the window with a big smile on his face! Now I take my house keys with me when I get the mail.

I haven't had any opps moments yet, but my daughter is only 9 months. So they are bound to happen soon enough. I'm so glad you were able to get the car unlocked.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
