I have a question to ask all you other moms out there.
Do you always take your car-seated children into the movie store, library, gas station, etc. with you?
I'm not talking about the times when you actually go into the library or go shopping in the store. I'm talking about the times when you just need to return a movie or book...you know, just a less than one minute task?
I will admit that I have on occasion left the kids buckled in the car to run a movie in, etc. That said, I always park right by the front door, lock them in the car, take the keys with me and am gone a few seconds at most.
I am pretty sure I look like a maniac looking back and forth back and forth from the car to my drop box destination. It's a wonder I haven't fallen or run into something =)
Even with all those precautions for some reason I am still plagued with mommy-guilt when I do this.
So, I am wondering...am I alone in imagining the "you are a horrible parent" stares from onlookers or do you do the same thing?
