Yesterday my boyfriend and I were doing ALOT of holiday shopping with the baby. We went to K-mart, got tattoos for charity and went to Target before we went home. Well I'm sure everyone knows how tiring it can get spending ALL day shopping with a baby. Our heads weren't in the right state of mind and we left the diaper bag at the bottom of the cart.
30 minutes later we were home and then we freaked out. About an hour later my boyfriend came back home crying. Someone stole the diaper bag. They didn't turn it in or anything and the cart person had just started doing carts. He checked everything and everywhere and it's gone.
Oh we cried for hours and then hours later we cried again. I just spent an hour packing the diaper bag that day. I filled it with his toys and new clothes, here I go crying again. We JUST BOUGHT a whole bunch of new clothes and toys and I put them in it. I blame myself for all that stuff we lost.
I think as a blogger people assume that I am making a lot of money. Well that's just not true. The only money I have made is from SocialSpark and I am saving that money to pay off Paypal the $68 that I owe them. Other than that I only receive products. Way to make me feel like a failure as a mother.
I don't have any solid source of income to make up for everything lost. My boyfriend barely makes enough to cover the roof over our head. Why would someone steal from a baby? There was NOTHING in there but diapers and toys and clothes, bottles and food and more.
We just bought a package of diapers, yup we only have one, and I filled most of it in the diaper bag. I really don't think as parents we can feel any worse than we do right now. Now we have to try and find some way to make money and make this up to our son.
Thank you to the Grinch who stole my diaper bag. You succeeded in making us feel horrible.
