A Toddler, Purple Honey, and 15 Miles
They say first time mothers make a lot of mistakes, like a gal I know giving her toddler a tub of vasaline for her lips, or another lady letting her child color with a sharpie because that was the only writing utensil she had available in her purse, or giving your child a honey bear filled with purple honey to hold – oh, wait, that last one wasn’t a first time mom – it was a fifth time mom with #6 on the way.
Yeah, that’s me.
The other day, on our way back from a potluck 4H meeting, I absent mindedly handed the huckleberry honey bear to my 2 year old son to carry – he wanted to help carry something to the car and it was plastic – what harm could be done? All that was running through my mind was to get my brood in the car and get home.
15 Miles later…
We reach our house. Door opens, dome light comes on. I turned around to see the honey bear still in his hands, half gone and my son, his carseat, and clothes covered in purple honey.
Oh the joys of being an absent-minded parent. I didn’t even have enough brain power left to think about getting a picture.
