Okay so im prob going to bbe shouted out for being an awfull mum but I want your opionion. Before I moved house i lived like a 30 second walk from my corner shop. To save the hastle of getting Noah up and in coat, buggy etc I would wait till he was in his cot asleep and then nip to the shop for od bits, gone for like 5 -10 mins. I allways felt like neighbours were watching out the window, and making notes to shop me to social services lol! Now I have moved Im about 2 mins walk from the shop and Im in two minds whether its okay to still do this, or if really I should have done this in the first place. Its just very anoying sometimes if I just have a quick 5 min errand to do like post a letter or buy some milk, so have to take noah along. Iwouldnt do it when he is up and playing as he could harm himself or somthing, but if he is asleep in his cot (normally sleeps for 2-3 hours in the afternoon) he cant get up to any trouble. Do you think its okay to leave him a few mins? do you do it? or am I an awfull mum for even contemplating sich a thing, and my son should be taken away from me at once?
