#41: Party’s Over
We’re giving this mom a break with this story. Leaving a kid’s birthday party is a major event. You have to wrangle all your kids who probably don’t want to leave yet, get them buckled up in the car, and leave without any of them throwing a tantrum. This lady faced that very challenge one day and took matters into her own hands with her six-year-old.
To avoid losing her littlest one to the party while trying to wrangle everyone else, she grabbed his hand and didn’t let go until she got him in the car. She felt pretty accomplished until she realized the kid she had buckled into the car wasn’t her kid at all. She had dragged a completely different kid with her that she didn’t know! At least she didn’t full-on kidnap him and noticed before she drove away.
