    Default Knew i had forgotten something lol

    Took three 2yr olds to soft play this morning, had great time. When it was time to leave i placed changing bag in front of car as i strapped all 3 into seats, then we got very excited watching bin lorry!!!

    Drove to school to collect another child, got home and couldnt find changing bag . Phoned lady at soft play who knows us well and luckily someone had handed it in.

    Please tell me i'm not only minder to have done this

    Not exactly the same but I have left an easter basket made my mindee on top of the car when driving away from pre school. Another parent beeped at me and I had to get out and retrieve eggs etc from the car park

    I did this again last week. The last child to go in the car every day is on the opposite side to the pavement so I often get straight in and drive off. Luckily I park outside another childminders house so she just takes it in for me

    I've done this too, and drove off looking out my rear view mirror saying to the mindees "oh dear, someone's left their buggy on the pavement!" Took me a good few seconds to realise it was mine

    I collected a mindee from nursery , drove off leaving his buggy on the pavement

    didnt realise until parent came to collect child that evening and it wasnt in my boot as normal

    felt awful as it was her buggy and they didnt have much money , so i offered to replace it of course ,
    and I was skint too

    Luckily it had been spotted by a nursery nurse leaving work , she recognised it and parked it up in the buggy rack and mum picked it up the next day Doh!!

    Slightly different but years ago my ex hubby took the dog for a walk and popped in the shop tying dog up outside. About 2 hours later, I realised said dog wasnt around and asked him where it was.....off he rushed up the road. The owner of the shop said he had been made aware of our dog being there and he was also a dog owner and knew us and told the customer that when he shut the shop if he hadnt have been collected he would return him home....lol

    My mum and dad fostered when we were young and once my dad left the foster baby in the pram parked outside the shop when he went in, and then went home without it! Luckily we only lived two minutes walk away and the people in the shop knew my dad!

    Yes I have left dog tied up outside the shop before and once parked at local shop then when I came out I forgot I had the car and walked home. Have twice left buggy on pavement but luckily I had to turn round and spotted it, another time I carried a baby back to car after toddlers then remembered buggy was in the pram park outside toddler group door. Now when I put mindees in car I make sure I first open the boot, this is my reminder to put buggy in!
