Aedan plays hide and seek

I let Aedan play on our living room carpet while I get stuff done while I'm in the livingroom, folding laundry, sort papers play on the lap top ect.

I walked out of the room 2 MAYBE 3 min to get a snack and when I came back in Aedan wasn't there.

"OH MY GOD... Wheres My baby!!!"

We live on a busy street and I occasionally worry that someone might walk in the house... take the baby... you know that irrational paranoid worry that's ingrained in every mom.The mom paranoia makes me always keep the doors locked.

So, naturally the first thing I did was run to the front door to check that it was still locked.

Thankfully it was, but I've still lost my baby.

I was near loosing it while I went back to the room and I heard "mama" back toward the living room... or maybe was it the dining room.

I get in there I can't see him or hear him... Am I loosing it??

Then I hear it again, "mama" ,very muffled.

He was UNDER the couch under the skirt of the couch.


I've never felt so worried over something so ridiculous... and probably should have been obvious.

Moral of the story?? The irrational panic has to be shelved and my life of being a mother of a mostly immobile baby will eventually come to an end, baby proofing must begin.

- I think I'll start by taking the legs off the couch.

Ha! You're baby is just as mobile as mine. So there!

BTW: I probably would've freaked out too.
