This by no means is my first mom fail, nor will it be my last. But this mom fail made me laugh.
Little Coop and I were on our way to the park when I realized that I didn’t have his sunscreen. So off to Walmart we went. We managed to go straight to the sunscreen aisle, got our goods and went to the checkout. This is a huge feat in that we passed up all of the other sundries we could have picked up as we normally do. As I pushed the cart (or as my southerners would say “buggy”) to the exit, two Walmart greeters said hello. They commented on how cute Little Coop was and one of the gentlemen placed a Walmart smiley face sticker on Little Coop’s face. My first thought was, ok that won’t last long.
Once we got to the car, I strapped Little Coop into his car seat and the sticker was no longer on my mind. As I am pulling out of the parking lot, I look back and see that Little Coop is chewing. He doesn’t have any food back there, what could he be eating? OH NOOOOOOO. I pull over and do a quick finger swipe of his mouth to realize that he had eaten a majority of the Smiley Face sticker. He wasn’t choking, he seemed perfectly fine.
I felt horrible for a little while. Then realized it was just a small piece of paper with a little adhesive. thought, what if it comes out whole. Ha ha ha. I sent my husband the following text message.
It has yet to make a reappearance that we have been able to see visually. LOL
