Bad mom moment!

Ok so how did my daughter end up in the middle of the street with an angel of a stranger?????!!

Oh thats right her mom is terrible. How in the world does an 18 month old escape a church?? Well I learned that just because your kid can't even begin to open a door, you cannot let them outta your sight for a second. That was my first mistake!!!! I put on her coat in the lobby and popped my head into the gym to say good bye and poof she was gone. Second mistake: I didn't look outside first, assuming she had to be in the building. Oh my gosh I have never been so scared!! When I heard 'they're out here in the street!' I just about died! A 3 year old and an 18 month old off on an adventure. Oh I am so glad they were both ok. I sat in my car and cried and cried. I have never wanted to hug a stranger so much. I didn't even get to thank her. By the time I got Kyla from my gf and thought to look up I didn't see anyone.

The full weight of what precious, innocent little children we are entrusted with really hit me today. I had forgotten how fast things can go wrong. The thought of what could have very easily happened still brings tears to my eyes. So from now on when u see the crazy mom, who won't let her child more than 3 feet away ... you'll understand that I am trying to make up for how terrible I was today.

Things I have learned!

So I was thinking over the year and reading everyones blog updates, these are the things this year has taught me:

1- Not everyone has to like me!! What? I know but it's true.
2- People change! For both the good and bad.
3- Your real friends will always be there when you need them! (Love ya)
4- The sister you hated growing up, may well end up being your best friend.
5- People are put in your life for a reason, at just the right time
6- Life goes on.
7- Not everything is a big deal! (ok so maybe I need to work on this one still).
8- Kids can fix the worst day with just a smile :)
9- Yummy treats make everything better.
10- Christmas cannot be ruined! (Though people try! lol)

Anyway I am glad this year is over and that I have learned alot. It's been an up and down year that's for sure. But I am looking forward to next year and all it holds. Especially to meet this sweet baby boy that has been making me so sick!
