In my attempt at being a “cool” mom today I made an epic fail. I successfully managed to lock myself and my four year old son out of our house this evening. My plan was to take him out for a Happy Meal ,because he has patiently wait the implemented two week period I have enforced, and then go by the store and pick up a few things. Then I was going to come back home and get little man ready for bed then off to sleepy land. After completing all this I then planned to relax from my already not so great day by indulging in the guilty pleasure of girl teen girl T.V. drama. Well at least the in-laws have a spare. Oh, and did I mention it was cold? It was. And my son had a nice warm jacket on. I did not.
