Well it happened to me today, I finally had that mommy moment that made me want to crawl under the buggy with my head hung in shame.
We got out for our first real let loose trip to the grocery store today since getting sick almost a month ago (or maybe it was more than a month ago, I've seriously lost track of time). As we are going down the aisle I told the kids to wait with me while someone passed us. I heard Katie say something but I didn't pay to much attention I thought I heard what she said but dismissed it as not possible coming from my angelic 3 year old.
Fast forward to the line..
The same lady from the aisle is in front of us and Katie looks at the lady throws her arms up in the air in her sweetest voice says.......
"move out of our way lady".
I don't even know what I was thinking at that moment I was truly dumbfounded, at least until the lady looks at her and says " I already did that once".
To which I realize that yep that is what my angelic 3 year old said before in the aisle.
The lady was nice about it and did say that she has a 2.5 year old grandchild so she understood. But really what kind of mother teaches that to their child?
I guess I need to be more careful about what I say in the car as that is the only time I can think that I would say such a thing, little ears are always paying attention!
