A Jack Fix & A Near Miss
Friday was a very exciting day at our house.
R & M let us babysit Baby Jack.
This was the first time that we had seen him in 2 1/2 weeks.
It's amazing to me how much he had changed and grown.
I met R & M for lunch at Panera.
It was wonderful catching up and hearing about their first official weeks together as a family.
After lunch, Jack and I ran over to Gerbes to pick up some baby food before heading home.
I was holding him on my hip and pushing the grocery cart when a beat-up white car came racing through the parking lot...nearly running us over.
The car then ran over a small embankment and nearly hit a women coming out of the store. She had to jump up on the sidewalk to avoid being hit.
The car then sped up and raced away as she shouted expletives after it.
I quickly loaded Baby Jack and the groceries into the car and drove off in pursuit of the offending vehicle.
As luck would have it, I didn't have to travel far.
The white Toyota Camry was in the adjoining strip mall, parked directly in front of Deuce Pub & Pit...go figure.
I quickly took down the license number and drove back to Gerbes to report the incident. The police were notified.
Only then was I able to comprehend what had actually almost happened.
It's a miracle that nobody was hurt.
I think The Big Guy was definitely watching out for us!!!
