Just wanted to let you all know that tonight I received the Mother of the Year award! Lil' man was throwing down inside of target. I had enough and decided we needed to leave. Its never a pretty sight when we leave the store. That kid loves to shop. He screamed the entire way to the car. I had to "fight" him to get him into his carseat
He threw his shoes at me, as well as a cup of juice. He was screaming at the top of his lungs, "somebody help me, I want to go back into the store." "HELP HELP HELP ME PLEASE."
I finally got the lil
shit guy buckled into his seat. I slide the door closed, and took a breather. I had calmed down and went to open the door. hmm for some unknown reason it was locked.
My keys were sitting on the drivers seat. I was 45 miles from home where my spare was. After several minutes of shouting directions through the window as to how to unbuckle I gave up. He wasn't going to be able to get out.
Because of his lack of impulse control he still rides in a 5pt harness carseat. He was able to undo the top clip, but not the bottom part.
I called the non emergency police for help. They informed me that they would call pop-a-lock, and send an officer over. Three officers showed up within five minutes of my phone call. By now I had been standing outside in 40 degree weather with no coat on for 20 minutes .
Two seconds later my door was opened and the kid was free! Who new accidentally locking your kid in the car was a great way to defuse a tantrum!
