$134 gone in 5 minutes

When baby Mobbs doesn't have paint on the walls or diapers to wear she can thank her mommy and the mutt that lives with us. This morning I stopped at QuikTrip to get gas and had Piper in the car with me. I got out to pump the gas and left the keys in the car like I always do (but won't do anymore). When my tank was full I went to get back in the car only to realize that Piper, a.k.a. "Stupid" most of the time, had stepped on the lock button and locked herself and the keys inside the car, along with my cell phone. I spent the next few minutes trying to get her to step on the unlock button with no success. Yes, I looked and felt like an idiot. QT let me use their phone to call my parents who were 5 minutes away. My mom laughed hysterically the whole time I was talking to her which didnt' help the ego much. For the next hour we sat waiting on the locksmith to come. When he got there it took him all of 5 minutes to unlock the door and he charged me $134. So the money is gone and I learned a few lessons: Do not leave your keys in the car, own more than one key to your car(I dont' now, but will soon), and look into a AAA membership.

And another note on Stupid. Two nights ago she decided to eat the beautiful gold diaper bag seen below. Korey and I woke up to find it in a million little peices. Awesome. So my half price diaper bag is no longer such a deal because I've purchased two.

oh my gosh...that is hysterical! AND so sad about the bag. I know it isn't the worst thing that could happen but my mouth was totally open in shock of the dog eating the very new diaper bag.

Oh, Mary that stinks about the bag...and hillarious about the dog locking the car!

hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the pet hatred grows by leaps and bounds once the baby arrives... just sayin'.
