We’ve all done it.
I left my son in his pram at the cheese counter at Tesco. I was through check-out before it dawned.
When my auntie’s toddler threw a tantrum in the butcher’s, she marched him off and got the first bus. They were home before she realised she’d left something at the butcher’s; her baby daughter.
Friends in the Navy disembarked a ship, leaving their daughter sleeping in a carrycot in a cabin.
David and Samantha Cameron left Holly, 8, at the pub; so what? Momentary aberration doesn’t make you a bad parent.
It does make you a pretty rubbish government security guard, though.
