I had a massive heart attack

Yesterday, I needed to soak my foot in a hot bath. Telling you why is too long of a story. I'll just say that I was attacked by a can of Betty Crocker chocolate frosting. It wasn't good. When I got out of the tub, I asked Cameron and Avery where Peyton was. They were supposed to be keeping an eye on him. Cameron said, "I don't know." Avery said, "Oh, he wanted to go outside and so I opened the front door and let him out." I screamed at the top of my lungs, "you did what!?" and immediately freaked out. I first ran through the entire house screaming Peyton's name. There was no answer. I threw on some shoes and ran outside on my gimpy foot. Avery said, "I'm pretty sure I saw him go this way," pointing up the street and running off in that direction. Cameron ran off screaming, crying and terrified to get Tyler to come and help us. I was absolutely frantic. I ran up and down the street calling his name. He was out in just a diaper and his pajama shirt which just screams "I have a horrible, neglectful mother who never watches me and lets me roam the streets". Every kind of horrible scenario you can imagine ran through my mind. I decided that running around and screaming was pointless. I needed help right away. I ran back into the house to call Ryan to tell him I had lost our child and that I would be going to hell for it. I ran into my bedroom to use the phone on my desk. I called his him and he didn't answer. I started to call his pager when suddenly I heard, "Mom". I turned and saw Peyton come crawling out from under my bed. I screamed, slammed the phone down and grabbed him. He saw how upset I was and started crying. I nearly passed out I was so relieved. The little stinker had been in my room, under my bed the entire time. Avery had never let him out and when I asked her why she would say something like that she just shrugged and said, "hmmm...I don't know."

That's awful! I'm sorry that Avery told a little fib that caused you to have a heart attack. And I'm sorry the frosting container attacked you too. Kids. Sheesh.

Kristen said...

I would have wanted to beat my child even though she didn't realize what a panic it would put you in... I'm glad he was safe.

That is such an awful feeling when you can't find them. I can't believe he was hiding under the bed I can hear Avery saying that tho'

Rebecca said...

Oh my!! I am so glad that everything is all right. Dots -- my 12 year old went out one day to get the mail, about 2 minutes later I went after her just to make sure she was okay and she was no where to be found! I was a mess and she is 12. I can not even imagine how upset you were.

That happened to us at a family party with my nephew. We realized we hadn't seen him in about 10 minutes, so we searched the whole house. He wasn't anywhere (we had like 10 people searching). He had opened the front door a couple of times earlier, so after we searched the backyard we started running around the neighborhood, screaming his name (it was dark, too!) I wanted to bawl and right as I was about to call 911 my sister heard him kinda giggle...he was behind the couch, where the cat likes to hang out. My feelings at the time were how do you hug a child and spank them at the same time??!! Kids are stinkers. Worst feeling in the world, losing track of a child. So glad Peyton was fine!!!!
