Let me set the scene. It is morning drop-off at my son's school. Sweetpea and Babycakes are strapped safely in their car seats. I am just about to back out to head home, when I spot a mom that I wanted to chat with about an upcoming birthday party. I tell Sweetpea I'm just going to be a quick minute and I'll be right back. I then proceed to hop out of the car to jog over to the other mom. Did I mention I left the car in reverse? Immediately the car begins to drive away with my babies in it. I am now sprinting to jump into the open door. It is now gaining speed. With a Bo Duke maneuver, I jump back into the car and slam on the brake.
Say whaaa???? No one was injured, and I didn't even hit anything even though the car traveled a good fifteen feet at least. I was pretty mortified though, and amped up on adrenaline thinking of the possibilities of what could have happened. So, I did not stick around to see if there were any witnesses (which quite frankly, how could there NOT have been witnesses?? It was a zoo). I got the heck out of there as fast as I could, while driving super carefully as to not completely freak people out and solidify any future banning on chaperoning field trips.
Oh, and did I mention I was kind of still in my pajamas?
