Mommy Freak Out Moment

Have you ever gotten something in your head that something has happened to your child and then you rush to find that everything is as it should be?
Yeah, I did that yesterday.  Emmett was staying with his grandma for the first time overnight.  I knew from experience that there was little to no cell reception there, but that just left my mind.  I couldn't reach her and I was just conviced something crazy had happened.  I had visions of house fires, flipped car, home invasion, and I don't even know what else.  They live over an hour away so I threw clothes on Robbie and myself, jumped in the car with no gas, and started driving.  Of course I had to stop and get gas along the way, but I was freaking out the whole time I was pumping it.  I got there and she just looked at me like I was crazy.  She understood, of course, because she has 3 kids, 3 grandchildren, and one on the way.  I felt a little dumb, but it satisfied me to know that he was just fine.  He was super happy to see me and I was elated to see him.
Who wouldn't be? Look at this cutie!

I hope everyone else has had a moment like mine.  I'd love to hear about them.  Post below!!

  1. I have done that before myself. Dont worry. You will have plenty more of those moments. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night because I am worried about Matthew and then realize he isnt in his room and start to have a heart attack. Then Eric reminds me that he is at his grandmothers or Memaws.
