What would you have done??

My husband and I took our kids to the park last night and my 4 yo son was playing with another little boy about the same age the entire time we were there. This little boy even followed us to another part of the park and was with us there for about 20 minutes. I didn't see anyone wathing him or checkin in with him. I asked him where are your parents and he just gave me a blank stare. Finally I told my husband to go ask him where his parents are because it was getting dark and I didn't want to leave without knowing he was there with someone. He said that his mommy was at work and his daddy was at home down the street. So I stayed there and watched the kids and my husband went to a fire station across the street to notify them there was a little boy at the park with no parents. They came right away and found out that the boy did have a guardian there. His grandpa was sitting on a bench not even paying attention to him. WTH??

  • CONTINUED I mean seriously we were there for like an hour and a half and couldn't even tell if he had parents there. People need to keep a better eye on their kids!!!!!!!!!

  • Why wouldn't he say his grandpa was with him? That's odd.

  • Whatever... I watched my daughter cavort for an hour and a half at the park with everyone running circles around me and you know? It's funny how damn snobby people can be at a fricken park of all places.

    The thing about this story that's odd is how the kid *curiously* left out dear old gramps and of course you all fell right for it, Ugh old man didn't 'claim him'. Kids are devious, get with it people.

  • {cont.} Yeah I'm not a fan of hovering all over my kids every second anymore... moms act like you're a rapist if you play with your kid and theirs want to join in too.
