Victoria Beckham recently told US Vanity Fair that she was half-way to Brooklyn's school one morning before she realised he wasn't in the car.
"I got up in the morning, and I knew that I had a whole morning full of conference calls," she said. "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. I jump in my Range Rover, put the car seat in, put my iPod on — obviously very important — and I drive to school. I realised, I'd left Brooklyn in the kitchen. I was driving along, talking away, and all of a sudden, I looked at the front seat, and I was like, 'S**t! S**t! I've forgotten something!'"
Victoria immediately turned around and headed back to her Los Angeles home, where David was waiting in the driveway shaking his head.
"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."
Have you ever left a child behind? What did you do when you realised?
