Had some bad luck yesterday

Yesterday was a bad day. It started off okay, then went downhill when I was going to pick up the girls from school. I strapped my son into his car seat and realized both my house and car keys were in the house. I had locked my door on the way out. Thankfully, one of our windows doesn't lock, so I had to heave myself up through it. Yes I was sore after, but I made it to the school on time to get the girls. The second bad thing happened after dinner. Last night was bath night and I usually start with the youngest and work my way up to the oldest. The 2 youngest were bathed and in their pajamas. I was upstairs when my 4 year old says the 2 year old went outside. I didn't even stop for my shoes. That little guy is fast and had made it a few houses away. Thankfully a concerned citizen had pulled over and stopped him from going further. He was safe, but so many things could have happened. I need to ensure all in the house are more careful with the back door. So far, today has been better, though I am sure my son scared a few years off the end of my life.

Glad you were able to retrieve him with no negative consequences! I remember chasing down the street after a diaper clad toddler when one of mine pulled a similar stunt.

He was in a one piece pajama, with feet. While adorable toddling down the sidewalk, it was scary. He even managed to cross a street.

That is so scary! Thanks to that concerned citizen though. Many people would not even care.

Kids are great for scaring the crap out of us and they do it well. I am glad to hear you are having a better day :-)

What a good job your 4 year old alerted you. On the contrary to you saying it was a bad day, I would say it was an extremely lucky day. Your son is safe, instead of being killed or hurt.
