hello, 911...


oh, i have blog?!  hmmm... must've slipped my mind.
or maybe it's just that this is one of the busiest seasons of my life!
blogging just seems to be one of those things i can't keep up with these days.
but i am super excited to be participating in heather hamilton's home made lovely series tomorrow!
do you want a peek into my crazy home?

what kind of crazy you ask?

well, for example...

when you pick up my house phone (which i my case is just my phone because i am anti-cell phone), the previous number dialed is displayed... just in case you want to do a quick re-dial.



so when i called my mom to inform her that her grandson almost gave me a heart attack... it was a clear reminder of how scary the previous moments were.  Because it was a total blur when I dialed 911 on Sunday when WE COULDN'T FIND COLE ANYWHERE!  The scariest moments of my life led up to Chloe finding him hiding in a corner of the garage while Kevin was frantically searching the neighborhood on his bike, Chayse was double-checking his usual hiding spots, Camden was hysterically asking over and over if he had been "squished by a car", and I was just running around like a crazy person before eventually calling the police.

that boy is a STINKER! which totally supports my no time to blog sob story.

like i said, it's crazy over here.

I'm so glad you found him safely. I know what that's like. I thought I lost my little "explorer" at the zoo. I was in crazy mode.

It's wonderful how your other children were helping you find him. Glad things are okay now.

Whew! Praise God that you all found him. So glad that peace is restored. Missed seeing you on the blog.

Oh My! Don't you just HATE those moments of absolute fear moments? A little bit dies inside, doesn't it?? I have a son named Camden, too, and he nearly drown in the public pool during his swimming lessons last week. The teacher had turned his back and my son went under. It was me who had to run in, waist high, to pull him out. It took us several minutes to return our heart-rates back to normal, sitting on the side of the pool. But Camden seems to be over it. He returned to his weekly lessons last night and says he has lots of fun at "drowning lessons."

May your stress be much less over the next few days. We will survive this "motherhood" thing!

SO Scary!!!!!!! Kate hid from me once at our friend's house (a few months). I was FREAKING out. Glad you found him & that he was safe.

Been there! When my youngest was of crawling/toddling age he very quietly toddled into our laundry room (which I thought was closed) and shut the door behind him. Our laundry room was built into our garage and has a fire-safe door (you can't hear anything when it's closed). I couldn't find him anywhere. I searched high and low. I was sure he had toddled out the front door and been snatched by a predator! I was running up and down my street screaming for him, and even checking the neighbors pool (most awful feeling) and calling my husband at work hysterical yelling "he's gone!!!!"
In my hysteria I went on a rampage thru the house once more looking under every bed, behind every door, and finally opening the laundry room door....
You never forget those feelings. So glad the little stinker was safe and sound.
