We all have those challenging days that don't go as plan. Sometimes we have very embarrassing moments but we some how find away to sparkle through it!  This is one of those embarrassing moments that you would never dream about having before becoming a mom that happened to me a few years ago...

After a long, hot day with friends at the zoo we headed to the car.  Two at the zoo on your own is tiring!  You know how it is pushing a 35lb toddler on a riding board, 16ish lb infant and a 22 lb stroller all around on a 85 degree day.

Then we overstayed and everyone was exhausted by the time we got to the car.  It was the last 35 minute wait for the carousel that finally did us in.

So by the time the stroller was taken apart and stored in the trunk and Ellie was in her car seat I had to nurse Madeline in the front seat.  I was so hot.  She was so hot.  The last thing I wanted to do was put her under the nursing cover.  I took a quick peek around and did not see anyone coming so I started to nurse uncovered.

Just as I was finishing up the first side and unlatching Maddie an entire troop of Boy Scouts began to walk by.  Not joking.  I'm sure it sounds like a joke, but it happened to be my real life.  I quickly covered up the best I could and I'm pretty sure none of the elementary school kids saw anything inappropriate

The last of the boy scouts walked by and I unlatched and just as I was about to latch again the second group walked by.  I mean, really Boy Scouts?  Aren't you supposed to stick together?

The good/sad? part is I was too exhausted to even be embarrassed.  Instead of humiliation it was more of an "of course Boyscout Troop 211 is walking by right now while my I'm totally exposed!

So yeah.  That's my sparkling truth story.  Sad but true.  And if any parents of Boyscout Troop 211 are reading this, I'm really sorry..
