Garibay Soup: A Mortifying Parent Moment

A Mortifying Parent Moment

Being a mom comes with a whole bunch of mortifying experiences. Situations that make you want to crawl in a hole and not come out for a very, very long time.

Today one of those happened to me.  As my fingers tap against these keys I still want to hide my face.

There was a knock on the door.  Normally, if you don't call I don't answer the door.  That's just how it goes ~ so if you're in my area and reading this... TAKE NOTE.  And after reading this you'll understand why.

Well, today I had this feeling that I needed to answer it.  I'm glad I did, because it was my landlord and I really needed to talk to him. 

I picked up Ella and answered the door, stood outside with her and spoke to the man.  We were exchanging phone numbers {funny how we didn't have each other's phone number huh?} and so I stuck Ella back inside. When I came back in from my conversation with him, Ella was standing in my living room with a shirt on.  And that's it.  No Pull Up, no panties, no pants... her bottom half was BUTT NAKED!

Panic went through my entire body.... did I really just hold my daughter outside, while she had nothing on?????  I had to know, so I called my landlord {since I now have his phone number} and asked.  YUP!  I apologized and said I really had no clue!!!!  HOLY CRAP.

And that my friends... is the life of a mother.

And this mother is MORTIFIED!

Awwww ((hugs))... but look at it this way. YOU could have answered the door without YOUR pants on. Now THAT would have sucked. See... it would always be worse ;)

♥ you! Hope your day gets better!

You know, before you even mentioned anything about being naked, I thought to myself- I wonder if Ella was naked? Don't ask me why, I think I just know you too well! HAHA!!
