Victoria Beckham is a working mother who has four children and a growing fashion empire. She has no time for vacations and works a lot, even too much sometimes, which explains why she looks so tired at glam events she has to attend. But these things are nothing compared to the fact she can forget her son at home and drive to his school without him. Victoria definitely needs to take a break.
Victoria Beckham with daughter Harper Seven
And here is the story, which is both funny and serious, told by Posh herself:
This is a funny story. I got up in the morning, and I knew that I had a whole morning full of conference calls. So I got up early with Harper, sorted Harper out, got all the kids their breakfast, got them ready for school, put Harper in the car seat, and said, ‘Come on, kids, we have to get going or we’re going to be late’ – every morning I take Brooklyn, and David takes the little boys to school. We take it in turns because they go to two different schools. So I jump in my Range Rover, put the car seat in, put my iPod on – obviously very important – and I drive to school. And then I realized, I’d left Brooklyn in the kitchen. I was driving along, talking away, and all the sudden, I looked at the front seat, and I was like, ‘Shit! Shit! I’ve forgotten something!’”
I’d gotten down the road, and I literally had to turn around and drive back up the driveway. And David was standing there in the driveway with all three boys, just [shakes her head]. And I felt like such an idiot because I was in such a rush. Harper was in the car, I was in the car, and we were on the way to school. But we did not have the child who needed to go to school.”
Has anything like this ever happened to you?
