This morning got off to a scary start. I woke up in my daughter’s bed still in my work clothes from yesterday at 6:20 am. She and I looked out the window at the beautiful, fresh fallen snow, and my hubby’s car tracks in the driveway. He had already left for his business trip to LA. Sierra went downstairs to watch TV while I stayed behind to check in on Brooke. I looked first in her crib – no Brooke. I looked in her “big bed” – no Brooke. I looked in the master bedroom – no Brooke. I called down to Sierra – no Brooke there either! My heart began racing and I frantically began searching the house. I looked all over the main floor, then down in the basement – no Brooke. I ran back upstairs to Brooke’s new “big bedroom” and kicked our Rottweiler off of Brooke’s “big bed” fearing that Molly was laying down on top of her and suffocating her. Thankfully, Brooke wasn’t there. Where could she be? Fearing the worst I began screaming her name; “Brooke, Brooke”! Then out of the play tent in her new “big bedroom” I heard a tiny, sleepy, voice cry out “Mommy?” I swear, that will forever be the sweetest voice I have ever heard in my life, and I pray this morning will be the scariest morning of my life.

What’s the scariest thing your kids have ever done to you?

  1. my little one hide in the car as i took a package in, when i came to get her in the car she wasn’t there and i was freaking OUT…screaming her name, i ran back inside thinking she got inside somehow, i was so scared, i went back to the car screaming for her and all of sudden she pops her head out of the third row ???

  2. Umm, probably the time a few months ago when my boy was running with a stick, he tripped and fell, on the stick, which went into his mouth and punctured the back of his mouth/throat.
    I thought I lost him and have never been so scared in my life. The EMS workers calmed me down and the doctors told me that he didn’t hit anything serious.
    DO NOT let your young kids run with sticks in their hands.
