I've offically had THE heart attack now!

After skating I stopped at Wal-Mart with Julia and Chewie. It's Chewie's turn to bring snack to school this week--and I really didn't want to go out after Ted got home. Julia is helping me load up the bags and I turn to get Chewie--who was just standing behind me and HE"S GONE!!!! Nowhere in sight. I totally panic--looking everywhere for him. Screaming his name. Nowhere. I'm seriously thinking of having them shut the store while looking for him (Code Adam). All the sudden he comes sauntering along. OMG--I was ready to kill him!! Look of death and we were out of there. Screamed at him all the way home---and yes Julia was there in the background going"you can leave mom alone". Got home and he went into his PJs. Fed him, let Ted yell at him and off to bed. Now I have a few more grays to cover. Damn kids. I'm going to be completely gray by the time they reach 10--if my heart lasts that long!

Been there, done that. Except I lost Jarod in the woods up north for 3 hours. No scarier feeling in the world!!

Ok, so I have this visual (and I probably read it wrong) of Julia patiently explaining to Chewie why he can't leave YOU alone (like you might be the lost one). Quite humorous from MY end, but scary as the devil from your end, I know.

Ugh, that is a horrible feeling. I'm sure he'll never do that again.
