Today would have to go under the header of one of my more embarrassing moments. I was at Walmart (were else would I be) I had to run out and get a few things and I had both boys with me. Jack has been sick so I was trying to scramble and just be in and out. Well, after about 45 minutes of shopping I headed towards the check out line. I was just about to put my items up on the conveyor belt when I looked at George who was leaning over the front of the cart, I thought to myself he is going to fall out of the cart and just as the thought ran through my mind he did. Lucky for me no one was around to help :) right! So I scoped him up to examine him and to sooth his cries when I noticed a Huge bump on his forehead, I ran to the cashier and asked if I could use her phone so I could call John and get his opinion on the situation, I was freaking out. The lady takes one look at George and tells me I have to go to customer service and fill a report out. So I manage to take the cart with one hand and hold George with the other and arrive at customer service in shambles. At this point several "Personal" come running over and the "risk/ incident management team members" come over they look at George and just keep repeating "that looks really bad,
do you want us to call an ambulance!"
I reassure them that we won't be needing an ambulance but this of course gets me more worried and upset, so I start examining George more closely and I start to realize that I am going to pass out. (This is not abnormal for me I have a low tolerance for accidents and emergency situations) so I tell the workers that I need to lie down. I then lie in the middle of the floor in the customer service department and one of the "personal" workers takes George and he starts screaming bloody murder. Again I here,
"we need an ambulance" I say "no I will be just fine."
After 5-6 minutes of the usual coherence question they allow me to sit up and hold George. I then fill out an incident report and was free to leave. This whole thing lasting about 30 minutes.
Needless to say, I was not so keen on passing out in Walmart in the return line where several people were watching and then having my son scream the store down and me on my back on the floor like and idiot. George is fine and so am I, but I must be the lamest mother in the world for passing out in Walmart after my two year old gets hurt, I should have been helping him! Well, so much for mother of the year award.
