Today Jack had his 1 month check up. Can't believe he is that old already. Time just goes by so quickly. On the way home from his appointment, I stopped by Kohls to buy Jackson some clothes with gift cards I got from his baby shower. There were a ton of sales so I was pretty excited about getting good deals and not even using my own money :) Anyway, after I had finished shopping and was headed to check out, I realized that my gift cards were in my purse not my wallet. I had left my purse in the car so I had one less thing to carry. So I set my clothes down, walked out to the car and as I reached the car I remembered I had put my keys in my purse, and locked the car. Hence brillantly locking myself and my starving baby out! I called my husband told him my problem, and he said he would bring the spare in about 30 minutes when he finished up the job he was working on. So I headed back into Kohls with a screaming baby and sat on a bench next to this little old lady who kept telling me my poor baby looked hungry. I told her my dilemma and she said "oh you can go ahead and feed him, won't bother me. I'm used to all that stuff." Now I have never nursed in such a public place, and never again do intend to, but I was desperate. So I covered myself up, and as I fed Jack, I listened to this lady tell me all about how in 1985 she was choking had to get her esophagus cut open and she hasn't been able to eat any meat, veggies or salad since then. Then she proceeded to tell me about her feeding tube and how that all worked. (I thought I had it rough) Eventually the little lady's daughter finished shopping and came to take her home. My husband got there a few minutes later, and I must say, even though the conversation choice was odd, it was nice having company as I waited for my rescue. I think next time though, I will take my purse in the store with me to avoid it happening again.
