What's your funniest mom moment (either as a mom, or with a mom!)?
“I had taken my son to the NC General Assembly to meet with lawmakers. While I tried to speak to a lawmaker, my then 2 year old son kept himself busy playing with his favorite matchbox truck. Next think I knew it was sailing through the air and way out into the middle of one of the large inside fountains and he was screaming. I had no choice but to roll up my suit pants and wade in, much to the amusement of the lawmaker, staff, and lobbyists. What's a mom going to do, right?”
