Having a panic attack.

My three year old and I are home alone. I was cleaning the kitchen and turned around and he had wrapped a balloon string around his neck and he was purple. I FREAKED out. I couldn't get the string undone and had to cut it off his neck. I think that might have been the scariest moment in the 26 years of being a mom.

Thanks. We always cut the blind cords and all long strings. We usually get rid of balloons too. But yesterday was my daughters birthday and there were a few left behind. He has a huge big ring around his neck.

Oh my!  I do hope he is okay.

A few weeks ago, I had a similar scare from my three year old.  My husband was outside, I was cleaning downstairs, and our daughter was upstairs in her room (I check on her regularly, before anyone says anything about that).  Suddenly, there was a loud crash and the distinctive sound of breaking glass, followed by my daughter's screams.  I started up the stairs and heard my husband burst through the back door and come up behind me.  When we got to her room, we were greeted by a terrifying sight: our daughter's dresser (an older one made out of real wood, not light particle board) was toppled over on her legs, and her tea sets were in pieces around her.  Apparently, she had tried to scale the thing, and her weight had pulled it over.  Miraculously, she was not injured, just scared.  That dresser promptly went into the spare bedroom, and has since been replaced with those stackable plastic drawers in her closet.

In a nutshell, I am....a hippy-dippy; music craving; picture painting; story writing; kitchen loving; nature loving; vegetarian meal diggin'; OCD having; semi co-sleeping; non-spanking; big family wanting; homeschooling; homemaking; wife of a soldier; SAHM to the beautiful Lucy Rose!

It's awful those few seconds of the unknown.
