Watermelon

Today is my niece's birthday. She's a full 5 yrs old! Wow! Has it been that long? Anyway, I'm reminded of a funny story from when she was a little baby and I thought I'd share it with you guys.

My sister and her husband went to Jamaica for their second honeymoon/5 yr anniversary and left my nice and nephew with my parents. (I was taking summer courses at the time, so this all from what my mother has told me)

One day, they all went to the grocery store. After buying everything, they went to the car and unpacked everything. My mom, being in such a rush and not really paying attention, grabbed the watermelon and strapped it in the car seat. Then, with my niece still in the buggy, she rolled it back to the store. Then, she got in the car and drove off.

She got to the end of the parking lot before she realized she had left her. Why my nephew didn't say anything, I don't know.

Looking back she laughs at the situation, but at the time she said she was a bundle of nerves. I know I would be. Even though it was only a short while, anything could have happened to her. She was just a baby.

Thank goodness nothing did. My niece is 5 years old now...but she doesn't like watermelon...lmao

Let this be a lesson to you...never buy watermelon when you have a baby with you....lmao

That was funny. I know if it had been me I would have been a wreck too. Mistakes happen but luckily she was fine.
