Have you ever lost a family member in a store or public place? Have you ever been lost yourself?
I don't ever remember being lost myself, except looking for a business or someone's home in an area I'm not familiar with.
But...about 32 years ago I had a very hyper-active son and lost him several times in department stores because he would get away from me and hide under the racks of dresses, coats or what ever. I would be freaking out and when I finally cornered him, he'd be giggling because he thought he'd tricked me. Well, that only happened a couple times (3 at the most) when I tricked him~ I began leaving him home with dad or a babysitter when I went shopping. I decided if he couldn't behave like a little gentleman, he could stay home!
Note: He's grown up to be a fine man~now 36 years old. And if we go shopping together, he stays right with me. LOL
