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!


  1. LOL what a day. I'm not laughing at you...with you. Good heavens. Hugs to you.

  2. Be sure to put that one in his book. LOL!
