Patience Is The Key To Everything

As a new mom, it seems as if I am always juggling a million things either literally or figuratively all at the same time. My hands seem to always be full of something or another and oftentimes, because of this, I tend to forget a lot of things. My forgetfulness often rears it’s ugly head in the form of me not actually losing things, but more so misplacing them. For instance, one day I lost my car keys only to find them in the freezer. Or the other time when I thought I had lost my wallet inside of the supermarket only to get home and find it sitting on the roof of my car. Thank goodness I have yet to lose my baby although one time it did almost kind of happen.

On one especially busy morning, I decided to let the car warm up while I finished getting me and my daughter ready for the day. Once I finally had both me and my daughter dressed, I grabbed her as well as her car seat and headed out of the door. Normally, her car seat would have already been inside the car. However, on this particular day, I was driving a loaner vehicle while my car was being worked on. I strapped my daughter into her seat, got into the driver’s seat when I realized I had forgotten my purse. When I went to turn the knob to the front door, it was then I realized I had locked myself out of the house.

Apparently, I had been in such a hurry that I had locked the door behind me. And because I didn’t have my usual set of car keys and hadn’t taken the time to transfer the keys on my ring, my daughter and I were stuck outside of the house. Luckily for us, I did have my cellphone and so I searched for a locksmith denver co and was able to get someone to come out right away. We were so lucky that we at least had a warm car to sit in while we waited as this was one of the coldest winters in the US in more than 50 years. Also, since our neighbor’s had gone to work already, having that cellphone in my purse sure was a lifesaver.

Eventually, we were able to get back into the house and go on with our day for a nominal fee. However, this situation taught me a few lessons that I will keep with me for years to come. The first one is that I should not be in such a hurry as being in a rush can actually cause me to be delayed. I say this all the time whenever I see people speeding. It’s like, if you get pulled over for speeding, then you will really be late so just do the speed limit. But, mostly what this situation taught me is that my husband and I need to step into this new tech era and get ourselves some smart locks so that this never happens again.
