Totally That Mom (and Instagrams!)
I was rushing us out of the store to get home before she crashed in the car. We were one minute out of the parking lot when Andrew yelled, "Mom! my buckles aren't buckled!" Um, that was my second mistake.
The first place I saw to pull over? The shopping center with the new Chick-fil-a.
We couldn't stop at Chick-fil-a and not pick up lunch. So we waited in the drive-thru line. My third mistake.
By this point I was begging Caroline to stay awake in the backseat because she will NOT transfer a nap no matter how quiet and careful I am. Very sad.
She made it 'till we were seven minutes from home and her eyes would not stay open another minute so I did what any awesome mother would do.
I blared The Fresh Beat Band and sang along with Andrew as loud as I could.
Y'all my 22 year old self would have died of embarrassment!
But I was genuinely having a good time! And Andrew loved it.
He'd sing and then report to the front seat, "her eyes are open! she's awake! Oh wait - louder, louder!" We were seat dancing like crazy, and people in the next cars gave me funny looks.
I was totally that mom.
And I loved it.
