I had such a BIG scare today!!! I was outside today doing lawn work. My friends/neighbors who share the land with me on a trailer on my property were outside too with their kids. I was busy in my work and stopped for a minute for a drink. My 10 year old daughter asked where her brother was. My littlest was missing. He is 3 years old. My oldest son who is 15 frantically looked all over the woods and the house for him. We could not find him. Panic set in. I started to cry and lose my breath. We searched for him through the whole property. All I could of think about was what if someone stole him, or he was hurt or lost in the woods. We don't really have neighbors except for hunting cabins. There are endless miles of woods behind us and beside us. My daughter was screaming and panicking which made me much more panicky. My brother in law jumped in his car and looked along our dirt road. Everyone went up in the woods. I was about to call the police when my neighbor went in my house and found Daniel in his bed with the blankets over his head. I just burst out in tears and was shaking even after I knew he was found. Losing one of my children is my worst fear!!! I think God for looking after him. I will definitely keep a better eye on him and so will his sister and brother. He scared the living daylights out of me!!! He is safe now and I am thankful. There are so many nuts out there!!! I see so many missing children ads. I just don't want to ever have to go through that and God Bless anyone who is going through it!! I hope everyone enjoys the weather. I know I will. I am so glad winter is over!!!

awww.....while you're frantically looking for him, he was out dreaming under his blanket, that's where our gray hairs come from :-)
Kids from toddler to early elementary years are so energetic we could hardly keep up. it seems like all you did was blink and next thing you know they're out of your sight.
So glad to read he is safe and sound.
Gem :-)

Kids will age us before our time. I'm glad to hear you found him safe and sound. My daughter took a nap one time among a small hill of stuffed animals. She had me scared the same way. Thankfully I realized she wasn't able to open any doors yet and thought to look in her room again. (Hugs) Indigo

It will only happen once, trust me.  I lost my daughter in a store & security was there in a heartbeat.  She was hiding in the racks.....that was about 25 years ago, & I will NEVER forget it!
Glad all is well!
