I started to go on more walks with Piper since the weather was finally starting to warm up. Let me be more specific for my Canadian friends. I was referring to a week ago, not the last few days when we got snow AGAIN. I know what I should expect when I live here, but I hate that we have to welcome May with snow. Okay, back on topic. As I was taking Piper out more often, I was just waiting for it to happen. And IT did! I locked the two of us out of the house.
We have an automated deadbolt with a key pad so I normally leave my keys behind, but I somehow locked the door handle on my numerous trips in and out of the house. That darn kid kept forgetting her things. Okay, her darn mother was the one doing the forgetting.
Just when I thought things couldn’t get worse, the unthinkable happened. I realized that Piper’s soother was IN THE HOUSE! (insert scary music here) That’s when the panic set in.
My husband was about 4 hours away from home and I’m locked out of the house with a baby and a poor excuse for a ‘packed’ diaper bag. So…off to grandmothers we went! Luckily, my wonderful in-laws live in the same city. My mother-in-law was home and has baby supplies, so away we went. We walked the 45 minutes across the little city. I should clarify that Piper didn’t walk, she sat on her little baby butt while I pushed. On the bright side, I didn’t need to do a workout that night.
It all worked out great. The weather was perfect for us and Piper looked pretty awesome strolling through the city with her hat and sunglasses. Her amazing Nana even went out and bought Piper a new soother for the afternoon!
Moral of the story; don’t go for walks if you’re a blonde. Okay, the actual lesson here is to always have a hidden spare key, especially when you have a baby and are expected to be responsible. My bad.
