Still shaking....

I was at the store a little bit ago.  As I was walking out I hear the pitter patter of little feet charging behind me.  I hear someone yelling for the kid to stop.  At the same moment I see a large truck speeding down the parking lot.  I grabbed the kid before he could take another step.  The mom caught up to me.  She was HUGELY pregnant and had her hands full.  I carried the boy to her car for her.  She was bawling.  The truck driver stopped a few spaces down and then told the lady she shouldn't be letting her kid run in the parking lot.  I told him he needed to observe the speed limit in the parking lot and most especially in front of the store in the cross walk where pedistrians are quite common.  He started going off.  The lady got in her car and left.  I walked over to my car with him still following me.  So I took out my phone and dialed 911 and asked him if he wanted me to press send.  Then he walked away.

Good job! I have a VERY quick 2 year old and am 9 months preggo...so I feel that lady's pain! Sometimes you do your best and it still isn't quick enough -- those toddlers move like lightning.  The other day I took my son to the beach and he walked into the water and was in over his head before it could even register what was happening.  I ran in there and pulled him out immediately, but boy was I shocked at how fast it happened..and I was RIGHT THERE the whole time, within a few feet of him! As for the truck driver, if it was a company truck a lot of them have numbers on the back you can call to report reckless driving.

Exactly! My 2 year old is known to be a runner and won't sit well in a stroller.  I've though about getting him a backpack with a leash but hate people staring and judging.

The mom was very thankful.  She hugged me and told me she was glad I was there.  She told me she wanted to buy me dinner...but I told her it wasn't necessary.
