Clearly, I Should Not Be Allowed To Leave The House.

Alternately titled, "Local Pregnant Woman Arrested For Flashing Fellow Shoppers."

It was a double whammy kind of a night.

On Saturday night I ended up being able to get out for a bit. I haven't had much time lately to get out at all by myself...life is busy, and well, I'm exhausted at night when the husband gets home.

I got the girls ready for bed, started baths, and let Eric take over. I grabbed my stuff, hoped in the car, and put on some of my favorite tunes...you know, the ones that you can't listen to when the kids are in the car because you're too busy listening to The Wheels On The Bus instead?

You would've thought I hadn't been out by myself in a year, it was like an animal being released back in to the wild or something.

So anyway, I back out of the garage and hear a big ol' cruuunnccchhh. Yep, I hit Eric's car. Awesome. His much smaller car didn't stand a chance against my big ol' honkin' car that I haul all the kids around in.

And then when I pulled back forward, my car sorta ripped off some of his cars parts. That's not what I had envisioned happening.

So I took a piece of his car back in the house, layed it on the counter, and we laughed a little....sorta. What else can you do in that situation? We decided to deal with it later and so I headed back out the door.

I got to the mall, got out of my car, and headed for the one of the stores. I was on the phone, just walking along like everything was fine - you know, like normal people do.

And then, I caught a glimpse of myself in a store window. 

Apparently, sitting in the car makes my little maternity shirt edge up towards the top of my belly. So I was walking along with my shirt flipped up, and just my belly band that's wrapped around my un-buttoned pre-pregnancy jeans was hanging out there for all the other shoppers to see.

I know. I'm the coolest.

Try not to fight over who gets to hang out with me next, ok?

How on earth do you not realize that your shirt has flipped up? Was there not a breeze? Does this have anything to do with the fact that I'm only11 days away from 30???

Sooo, I feel that maybe I should just stay in till the babe arrives and my brain is back to thinking clearly...you think?

I was nursing my DD in he Ergo doing the one shirt up the other shirt down thing. Well she fell asleep so I hooked my bra and sort nudged my other shirt down a little. She slept that way for about 30 minutes until we had to get back in the car. I took her out of the Ergo and buckled her in the car seat. When I stood up my SIL was like "what on earth are you doing?! I had my bra hanging out for everyone to see including all my SILs friends! OMG!

Oh no! Hopefully the car will be an inexpensive fix! The shirt thing...well, you just helped some people smile and find a little joy in their normally dismal day! :) You're such a giver! ;)

Quite a day!!! I just hate when you hear the crunch of cars hitting. No fun at all!

Glad you survived it all with a smile!

Awww Kate!
Thanks for the laugh.....and I'm not so sure its being pregnant as much as it being so much on your mind AND age!?!?! ;)

*Ross and Katy* said...

haha thank you for the laugh :) I thought about you Friday night because the hubs and I had a big night out-we went to Target! I had to get an Icee and then we spent forever just walking around the store because I didn't want to go home. I now understand how you can spend forever in there :)

Jenn said...

Oh Kate! I laughed so hard through this WHOLE post! I can totally relate! Just wish I could have seen you walking in the mall! Maybe people just thought it was some new pregnancy fashion! Maybe!

jenny said...

Wow! An exciting Saturday night. So sorry to hear about the mishap with the cars. The mall story was just too much. Gave me a good laugh! :)

tabby said...

You are my kind of gal! I would hang out with you because the same stuff happens to me all the time! Love your little stories :)

Oh girl! Too funny! I had one of those moments when I was about 7 months or so pregnant with Ethan. I had to "upsize" a certain under garment and as I was standing there in all my glory my darling son busted open the dressing room door. Unfortunately I was in a room that opened out to the store. You should have heard my yelp of panic. I'm pretty sure I gave a couple unsuspecting people a little show. Needless to say I got out of there as fast as I could and kept my head down.

Glad I have a flesh flaunting sister!
