Cherish Peterson, a mother of four young kids, said she was horrified to realize she drove off from a grocery store in Arizona last week without her two-month-old son and since then, there’s been a roller coaster reaction on social media.
Here is the story Cherish Peterson
In my own family, we have told the story for decades about my Mum (now 95) leaving my sister outside the grocery store and actually driving home without her precious bundle. That bundle was left, along with other prams, outside the grocery store while mothers did their groceries!! Ahhh the good ol’ days.
My heart goes out to this family – every one of us has made some mistake that could have, given different circumstances, turned out to be a life/death situation. Unfortunately, Cherish and her husband have to respond to the social media outcry and actually defend an innocent mistake whereas my Mum just has to put up with friendly, family joking.

I would love to hear from you “If social media had been around when I was a kid/parent oh the story it would have made!!!”
Oh my gosh I have so many :
- Standing up in the back of Dad’s pick up truck while he stops and starts trying to make us fall down (my sister fell OUT!!!)
- Having “just one sip” of beer as a really young child
- Learning how to target practice at the tender age of 8???
- I lost track of the number of times my youngest got lost in stores, arenas, busy public places
