Mom Confessional, Part 2

Happy Easter! Jesus is the reason for the season, so please...make sure to eat your chocolate cross. Chocolate bunnies are so blasphemous. Aren't they?

By the way, I steal stuff now.

I used to be the person who would realize that the cashier hadn't scanned my water bottles underneath the cart and sprint back in to the register full of awkward excuses. "Uhhh....Oh my gosh! I can't believe I just did this...but uhhh....I walked out without paying for THESE!" Blush, blush....awkward laugh! With a cart cover, a diaper bag, my canvas bags (yes, I am a saint), and a boy who maxes out at about 37 minutes of shopping, there's always something that hides from the scanner. It's technically not too late. I'm at the car and it's a set of socks or a four-pack of Yo-Baby yogurt that is not bagged. And I know I haven't paid for it. But I just can't bring myself to go back in. Too much work....maybe? Principal...perhaps. The fact that I've already put a combative baby into his carseat for the fourth time today...most definitely.

It's not something I want to do. It's just something I do now.

Oh and how I know I'm not evil: my husband stole some Pledge under the exact same pretenses.

    OMG, I've done the same thing at Target so many times. I thought I was the only one. I find I often do it with greeting cards. They make there way under my purse or something and I realize I didn't pay for that as I take my purse out!

    They are so aggro about checking carts at the Safeway near me that I don't think I could walk out with anything, but I can see how it would be easy to forget about things in the bottom of the cart!
