That being said, the horrible event that happened Friday has left me feeling so uneasy. I think it hit close to home because my babies are in kindergarten and 1st grade. One of the victims was born a day before dd, another on my birthday. I can't get those babies out of my head.
I've been thinking about the "what ifs" a lot. What if that happened in our town? We live in a very tiny town with only one officer. I can't imagine. That, coupled with a few close calls I read about here on cm yesterday, and a post that got me thinking about the people who truly believe the world will end Friday, made me decide to keep my kids home from school the rest of the week.
I told dh about my decision and explained why, and fully expected him to disagree and urge me to send the kids to school. At first when I told him, he didn't really say much. Later on he said "I was really hoping you would keep them home the rest of the week. I don't trust the end of the world crowd".
I know it may make me sound crazy. That's fine. I dont expect everyone to agree with my decision. Are any of you keeping your kids home?
