nerve-racking shopping trip. What could possibly go wrong?
When I was not even two weeks sober, I went to our local discount store to pick up a few things. I took my 3-year-old great nephew with me. I was babysitting him that week. Looking after him caused me a great deal of stress in my newfound sobriety. At the time, my youngest child was 16. So I was not at all accustomed to being responsible for the care of a toddler.
