I robbed a bank and now I'm on the lam

Yes, I am a fugitive.
I robbed a bank.
Or rather, I stole from my credit union.
In my speedy get-away minivan, I floored it, speeding past the bewildered teller who was still in shock that I would have the guts to steal...
Is there anything more embarrassing than having to return to your credit union the next day and admit you forgot to put the container back in the tube before leaving, not realizing you still have it in the car until you're pulling into the garage at home and see it sitting on the passenger seat?
Fortunately for me, the coppers never found me and I was able to repent of my sinful ways before my soul was completely lost and hopeless.

When I look in the mirror, I almost see THIS reflection staring back at me:

or at least that's what my kids apparently see when they look at me. There are outings with the children where I feel nothing more than a glorified pack mule.

"Here, Mom, hold my jacket."

"Here, Mom, hold my drink."

"Here, Mom, take my trash."

"Here, Mom, hold my [chewed] gum."

Sometimes I wonder if the only way I'll be able to get their attention is if I kick up my hind legs and bray.
