When I was in high school, I was shopping with my BFF. She was looking at something to buy and picked it up. We kept browsing and she saw something else and asked me to hold her purse. We browsed for a little longer, then went to the register and she asked me for her purse....I didn't have it. We retraced our steps through the store, looked on all the shelves, checked every square inch of floor then eventually headed out to go to centre management to report it as lost and check if it had been handed in. As we were walking (about 2o minutes had passed) I went to adjust my bag on my shoulder and became aware I was clutching something under my arm........ It was her purse. 20 years later she still asks me to check under my arm when she can't find things.

When my dd2 was a newbie I did the shopping with dp. We had dd2 in the pram and put her at the end of the checkout while we put the groceries through and paid for them. We both then walked away with the trolley deep in conversation. It was only when people starting yelling out "excuse me..is this your baby" that we realised we had left sleeping dd2 at the checkout. ..parents of the year right here. It's funny now but at the time I was hysterical wondering how I could forget my own baby!

Another night I got the wrong bus home except didn't realise until the final stop as I fell asleep. It was a shock to wake up and have NO IDEA where I was. Turns out I was about 35 kms from home!
I once looked around and asked where DS2 was whilst I was breastfeeding him...
"Insert witty signature here"
I left my house keys on the roof of the car after strapping all the kids in and went out...the keys slid off and were gone so I was locked out. My youngest was a baby and needed her formula so I thought I'd climb through the toilet window as I had done many times before. The window was up high as the house was split level and once I got up there and pushed the screen out, I got half way in then got stuck! I'd put on weight and had another baby since the last time I did it lol. Baby was crying hungry and the young kids where worried that I was going to be there forever...but I managed to get back down after a good half an hour and drove to dh's work to get his keys.
Not long after I had my third child I met up with a friend at maccas for a coffee so our little ones could play In the playground. It's a tiny, fully enclosed area. My baby was asleep In the pram and my 13 month old was toddling around, she came to me and wanted to sit on my lap so whilst talking I grabbed her and sat her on my lap. I them looked in the playground and could see my DD1 but not DD2, I kept talking to my friend but also kept looking for dd2. I then said to my friend 'Can you see dd2?' She looked at me funny and didn't reply. I then felt a bit panicked and said again more abruptly 'can you see dd2?' To which she said 'ummm, she's on your lap'! We bother almost wet ourselves laughing, I had tears pouring down my face!
So many funny ones ladies! Makes me feel very normal thank you
Last week I went to town to pick the kids up from school. Did the usual park/pram/prep-pick-up and waited at the car for the older two girls. Waiting waiting. A friend came along and we chatted, DD2 arrived, kept chatting. Friend asked why we were still there, I said waiting for DD1, checked the time and started to freak that she'd gotten on the bus home. Start mentally trying to calculate if I had time to drop one at gymnastics and make it home to catch the bus... Um.. Yeh, DD1 had stayed home that day with a headache. I'd dropped her at my parents place in town before I went to the school for pick-up :/
My auntie went for shopping at the local market, the one where people from village comes and sell their crops/goods. Her daughter was in pram, facing forward. On the way she (auntie) met a friend and stop for a moment for a chat, then went on. Some 200m later someone asked her why she is pushing an empty pram. Imagine the panic mode my auntie went in... It happened that during the chat, my cousin slid off the pram, sit near the pavement and started playing with twigs and flowers there. Luckily this is a small and quiet city, and most people know each other.
Me: not so long ago. Put soup on the stove, and put it on 2 (heating strenght) as I don't like burnt botoms of the food. Wanted just to reheat it, so it doesn't get spoiled.
Then get myself and kids ready and... went out to Ikea. Yes, the place that takes a lot of time, besides I need to catch train and then walk. I went and came, and on my way back from the station I remembered. I started running with pram (2 sleeping kids inside), praying silently and looking in the air for smoke. As I arrived on the street I quieted a bit, as there was no firetruck in view and the building still stood intact. I flied the stairs, and came inside. Not even a strong smell, just my soup gone and become kind of very solid stew
Now i check kitchen 3 times before heading out.
