My mom was taking my "losing it" grandpa cross country to visit my aunt in California. While on the plane, a baby starts crying. Confused, my grandpa looks around and claims, "There's a chicken on this plane!" As if that wasn't enough, after landing, an Asian woman was at the airport with her arms wide to greet her arriving family. Grandpa thought that the hug was for him.
With our new chain link fence up, I felt confident leaving my 2 tots to play in the yard while I did dishes. 15 min. later, I found my 2 yr old missing. Just then my doorbell rang. I ran to the front door to find my son in the arms of our local police officer. He said my son was sitting on the street curb, throwing rocks as he drove by. He mastered the fence first try!
I took my kids to Chuckee Cheeses. I set the 3 yr old loose in the sky tubes & kept the 2 yr old w/ me. I waited. And waited for her to slide down at the exit. Nothing. 20 mins ltr I'm panicked. I hand the 2 yr old to a stranger & go up in the tubes. I run the course & she's not there. Now I've lost 2 kids. When I slide down, both are w/ the stranger crying. I'm the worst.
My daughter had an imaginary friend named Cindy who often visited our house to play dolls or eat lunch. One day my four-year-old told the sitter she was going next door to Cindy's house and left. I returned a few hours later and she was nowhere to be found. The neighborhood went on full alert, including the police, who found her at a park two miles away!
