Poor Kim ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. Well, for me itโ€™s a little weird to forget your kid and leave him/ her in a shop.๐Ÿ˜ณBut, of course, all parents make mistakes of the type. I lost my little then daughter in a supermarket, for example, but it wasnโ€™t my fault๐Ÿ˜ณ. I mean I lectured her about keeping close to me and had to do some shopping, my Sweetie used an opportunity and simply ran awayโ€Šโ€”โ€Šshe was ( and still is in fact) such an independent ( read: disobedient) child. Coming back to the topic of absent-mindedness, I was EXTREMELY absent- minded, now Iโ€™m just a little bit. I remember, when I started considering pregnancy, I heard the news about an Italian teacher who forgot about her little (8 months or so) daughter and left her in the car for 6/8 hrs, in summer, during a day. The baby died of course. The event shocked me to the very core. I thought, โ€œThis is soooo like MEโ€, and, later, โ€œ I could NEVER survive such a tragedy. NO WAY!โ€ The news affected me A LOT. I knew I had to work on myself really hard in order not to kill my future kids!โ˜บ And the โ€œtransport gateโ€ from the short story above? This is a true story. This happened to me. ๐Ÿ˜‚( before the kids). Thank you Agnes Louis for your patience (while listening to meโ˜บ).
