Shut-Eye, Open Door
I have a few fears concerning my children. I think about them all the time and pray they never happen: someone coming into our home and stealing them and them running out into the street and being hit by a car. I know, it is horrible to even think about these things, let alone post about them. Anyway, they both almost came true this morning!!--Well, sort of. Lucy woke up early early, so I gave her a b0ttle and both she and I went back to sleep. Then stealthy Seth got up, I heard him quietly puttering around the house, I was still in and out of sleep. Then, I wake up to Seth conversing with someone in the house!! It was a woman's voice. I grabbed a skirt on the floor to cover myself up and ran out in my skivies...there in our entryway was Seth and our neighbor across the street, I ran and put some clothes on and came out to see what was going on. She said she was leaving for work and Seth was hanging out in the driveway out front!!! Aaaah! Needless to say, Seth and I had a little talk and we are now bolting the front door at night to prevent further incidents. Talk about your heart skipping a beat. So grateful for kind neighbors in the right place at the right time. What kind of heat-beat skipping will Seth bring my way when he's older?!
