I've been through hell today....while I was working in the kitchen, 20 month old ds got out the front door (i normally lock the screen door if the door is open but dh left it open today when he left and I didn't realize it). I thought he was just playing in the living room and after awhile I realized it got really quiet. I went all over the house - no Luke. Went outside looked in the yard, looked in the sandbox - nothing. I started freaking out and ran around the house looking in the woods - nothing. Ran up the road screaming his name - could not find him anywhere. Finally after calling dh hysterically, I got in my car and drove up the street and saw him AROUND THE CORNER in my neighbors arms. She didn't know us so she had called the Sheriff who pulled up while I was sobbing with my son in my arms. She said she saw him WALKING UP THE ROAD. I am still so shaken...ds is sleeping now and I feel like I am the worst mother in the world. I can't believe this could happen so quickly. I guess it is a good wake up call for me to be more cautious. Thanks for listening....and please vent your story here if you have one!
