Even in the Beckham family, sometimes one child does get left behind.

In this case, it was 13-year-old Brooklyn, whose mom, Victoria Beckham, forgot to check that he was in the car when she was supposed to be driving him to school!

The 38-year-old fashionista and mom of four recounted her funny forgetfulness in a recent interview with Vanity Fair.

A few days before, she had a particularly busy morning "full of conference calls" and was scrambling to get baby Harper sorted out and her three boys fed and off to school.

"[I] put Harper in the car seat, and said, 'Come on, kids, we have to get going or we're going to be late,'" she recalled. Each morning she drives Brooklyn, while hubby David "takes the little boys [Romeo, 9, and Cruz, 7] to school." (They take turns because Brooklyn and his brothers attend 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," she said. "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, 'S--t! S--t! I've forgot something!"

She said she'd gotten "down the road" and "literally had to turn around and drive back up the driveway." David, 36, was standing in the driveway with all three boys shaking his head.

"I felt like such an idiot because I was in such a rush," Victoria said. "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."

Hey, nobody's perfect. Not even Posh.
