We live in an apartment complex with a lot of kids. Every ay they are out with bikes and scooters and whatever and for the most part, if there is a scooter unattended someone else will pick it up and ride it until the owner wants it back.
My 5yo has been having issues with a certain older boy, about 9 I would guess, who is always trying to take his stuff. I always hve to get it back from him. This boy is a LIAR. Last year he bt my son (imagine an 8yo biting someone!) and told me his teeth fell on my son's shoulder. So he is one of my suspects. BUT it could just as easily be anyone else, or one of the teenagers who don't live here, but hang out here everyday.
Usually when it's time for my son to come in I go out and make sure he's got whatever it is he brought out. I also check on him about every 1/2 hour or so to make sure he's being good and sort of do an inventory, see who's got what. Yesterday though the bbay was being super clingy and my husband called the 5yo in while I was givng myself a timeout in the bathroom. I didn't realize it was missing until about 20min ago. I went outside and looked EVERYWHERE but it is gone. When the kids get home from school you can bet I will be watching like a hawk to see if anyone brings it out, but if not, then what? The cops aren't going to launch a search for my kid's scooter. Should I go all momma bear and start knocking on a couple of doors? I'm already literally shaking with rage, my adrenaline right now is unbelievable.
My mom got that scooter for him this last x-mas and I can't afford a new one right now :( It was a really nice model, different from everyone else's.
