I am losing my mind

Yesterday was a big day for us. We went to the library for story time, then I stuffed the kids in the car and gave them their lunch on the way to preschool. (Tuey, for his part, smeared peanut butter and Nutella all over his face and in his hair and then promptly fell asleep.) Then I came back home with Tu and M and then went BACK to preschool to get E and on the way home we went to the grocery store to pick out pumpkins. (Aside: it takes kids FOREVER to pick out pumpkins, especially when part of the time they're pretending to be Wilbur the pig walking on the barnyard fence or when they're getting their feet stuck in between pumpkins. M, of course, was wearing a long skirt and a fancy, silky tunic.) Anyway, I stuck the pumpkins in the front of the van because there was no room in the back because the stroller was back there. OR WAS IT?? After Marmot Dad got home from work, we put the kids in the car again to go out, and I looked in the back and noticed the stroller was GONE. Left on the sidewalk at the library. Yes, this is my brand new double stroller that I paid for with my hard labor this summer in the classroom. The good news is that it was still on the sidewalk when we went racing back to find it. Someone had even pushed it into a corner out of the way. I just can't believe I forgot to take with me a great big RED stroller. (Of course Marmot Pa says it's good I forgot the stroller and not the kids.)
