3 yr old snuck outside on grandma's watch.....

ok my mom is a wonderful loveing grammy she is all about her grandkids. anyways sat morning she heard her grand son wake up at 7 am then all was quiet 5 mins later she assumed he went back to bed ( does do that) well she went back to bed and next thing she knew she heard a women outside yelling hello. she looked out her window and saw a women holding her 3 year old grandson, she ran out freaking out and crying ( she realized what happend ) thanked the women and sat there crying so the women told her. he was playing in the street ( theres a hill right before her house and u cant see over it till your there ) and thankfuly this women was going slow noticed him playing in street and pulled over and seeing a bike and chalk in driveway assumed he belongs there. 3 year old learned how to unlock the front door, so now grammy has a pad lock up high on her door. she is still upset. just the thought of what couldve happen..continue...

  • O that's very scary! That is why we put an extra tall gate on my 3 yr old son's bedroom door every night.

    Best of luck!
