Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

I was ALMOST abducted from the Bronx Zoo at age 3......

I was with my mom, her boyfriend & his son. The four of us were walking, and her BF was holding his sons hand & my hand. My mom said she bent down to tie her shoes, when she was done she looked up at her BF & noticed I wasn't with him. She asked where I was - he said he thought my mom grabbed my hand so he let go of me (didn't even bother to turn, look & make sure) - my mom panicked & she said something told her to run to the the area where you left the zoo -- & sure enough she saw a man holding my hand, trying to walk out of the exit with me.

She screamed for him to stop, screamed for help & two men ran up and grabbed the man. He told police that the he found a little girl & was escorting her to lost & found so she could find her mommy!! (sure you were, that's why you were trying to exit the zoo with a crying little girl)

Anything crazy ever happen in your life that could've ended up a lifetime movie?


*I actually experienced something worse than almost being abducted at the zoo ::

When I was 7, I remember being woken up in the middle of the night by my mother, she grabbed me and put her finger over her mouth (as to say SSSHHHH - be quiet) we ran and hid under our kitchen table (it was a round glass table but we had a super long table clothe (it almost reached the ground) anyway we were hiding under the table & I saw two pairs of black boot walking around our apartment (it scared the shit out of me)

They were there for what felt like forever (my mom said it was like 5/10 mins) - crazy shit is they didn't ransack our apartment or even take anything.

We moved to Staten Island like a day or two later.

Later on in life I found out that my bio dad was into some shit he shouldn't have been into & those guys were there looking for him. My mom & dad hadn't been together since I was like 1 - but it was the last known address they knew he lived at.

Our yard was along a road that was not used very much except for people in the neighborhood.  My mom was at work and my dad was in the house (I was about 6).  I was playing outside in the yard with my dog when a guy pulled up and tried to ask me for directions.  I started walking back up to my house and the guy got out of his car, my dog started barking at him and alerted my neighbor who was sitting on her side porch, she screamed for him to get away from me and he took off.  My dad came running outside and ended up calling the police and made a report.  Nothing ever came of it.

Good thing your neighbor was there - that sounds like it would have been scary

Honestly I did not realize what could have happened until I was older.  I was a little freaked out for a few minutes after it happened but then I just went on with my day.  I think my parents where a lot more scared than I was.  Now being an adult and knowing what could have happen it scares the hell out of me.

That's frightening. It only takes a second! So glad your mom followed her instincts.

I was almost kidnapped by two men in a car outside of our city pool. I was riding my bike, stopped at a crossroads, when they pulled up along side of me. The passenger grabbed me and tried to pull me into the car through the window. I was saved by a couple of teenage boys walking to the pool. The car sped off and they were never caught. I still have nightmares, and this was 27 years ago.

Not me, but my ex husbands first wife almost got eaten by a cougar when she was little.  Her mom said she sent her out to wait for the bus and was watching her from the window.  They lived in a rural area and the field grass was really high. She noticed something in the field and saw its tail flickering, it was stalking her daughter!!!  She knew she could never get there in time to save her and started to panic.....just then the school bus pulled up and scared it off.  FREAKY!!!
