I have never been so scared in my life!

I woke up this morning and couldn't find my DD anywhere! She had gotten out of bed somehow. I yelled and look through the whole house and didn't find her, didn't help I couldn't see anything with out my glasses either. I checked the doors all were locked. The bathroom, play room, all the bedrooms nothing and the house was silent my SO ran through also couldn't find her. After I grab my glasses I saw her sitting on the recliner sleeping sitting up with an empty bag of sun chips and a shitty diaper! I have no idea how long she sat there in the dark, or what she could have gotten into. It scared me so bad, I'm keeping the door shut and a gate in the hallway!

  • Glad she's ok. I'm sure something happens to all of us involving kids that gives us a little scare.

  • My girls used to do that on a regular basis. I went and bought them there own recliners (kid sized ones) and placed a small pee pad in the seat. Then they stayed in their rooms and slept in their chairs. Eventually they went back to their beds though.

  • Wow- that would be scary. I woke up once and my DS was in the bed with me, and in my sleep-garbled mind, I thought he wasn't breathing, and he was cool to the touch! I screamed so loud as I grabbed him and he jumped and yelled, and my DH sprang up on his feet, ready to kick somebody's ass because he thought someone had broken in! lmao

  • Scary, but at least u can laugh it now! But yes I would def put a gate up because next time she could do something that would harm herself! I did that once when I was small, but instead of being found in the recliner my mom found me IN the fireplace, lol, oh kids!

  • Oh my lovingmy4babies I did that too when I lived with my mom and it was just my DD and I. She was a newborn like 4 days old and I guess I was dreaming I grabbed her and ran down stairs yelling to my mom there was something wrong with her she said theres nothing wrong shes sleeping go back to bed and I took the baby and went back to sleep. After that she started sleeping in my room for awhile and I woke her up to ask her where her baby was she said dear I don't have a baby your my baby but you do and I said oh yeah what the hell am I talking about and went to sleep. I blame that on being so young lol.

    PANZONSMOM- in the fire place! That would scare me too!
