The Shock of my life!

I had a Shock of my life… which happened last Friday … As usual, once i parked my car, i will let one of my children out of the car and hold their hand.. i am always careful.. i never leave their sight and i always hold their hand.. my son know that i don’t trust him.. sometimes i hold his hand to tight.. he said ‘mummy that’s hurt’ .. i just said..‘sorry Sean i don’t trust you to walk alone’.. i know this disappoint him.. but i have too… i will only let them walk once their walking on the stairs because i can see them walking in front of me.

So this is what happened… i was opening the door for my daughter who were sitting at the back seat.. while looking at my son, at that time struggling to carry his bag from the passenger seat to the driver seat… at a sudden.. i only hear.. ‘mummy!‘…Sean was already running out of the car..  it happened so fast… i was panic…  i shouted at him to come back..  by then i don’t hear or see him anymore.. he was so far away…  i was already took the school bags out of the car…  i was running carrying my daughter with the two bags and a shopping bag i have been carrying…  i was panicked… i left my daughter and the school bags near a neighbor’s house.. i asked the maid to take care of my daughter… i was running but when i saw my daughter still standing there..nobody came out.. i ran back to get her…  i was shouting so loud.. ‘Sean where are you? its not funny! come back!... i can hear my daughter’s voice tense calling his brother.. . i can see people looking at us.. i was running like mad…

I was so scared when i don’t see him.. i was panicked..  i just hope there are no car at that time… i don’t want anything to happen.. i was scared… i even feel my body shivering..  when i heard his voice again.. ‘mummy!‘.. i saw him trying to run the other junction..i was ready to grab him but luckily he stop when he saw me.. i think he was scared too.. he did not realized that he ran that far from me…

I held his hand and told him that it is dangerous.. he was in tears.. and said he ‘understand’.. we walked back home.. i took the school bags i left near the neighbor’s house.. and i just realized the maid whom i used to know don’t work there anymore.. no wonder nobody replied when i asked for help.   The car door i left wide open… i locked the door and went up straight to our house.. the ground floor neighbor seen what happened and took pity on me… i really feel like crying that day…   sometimes people just drive they car like mad..especially that hour… but lucky  not even a single car on that road..

At home.. i hug my son… and told him what was happening and why mummy are worried.  Children… they understand what is wrong and what is right.. until they do it.. and we repeat whats wrong and whats right…  I cannot remind him that everyday…i have to be extra careful… its not just a surplus to my duties…it is my responsibilities…….. i am just glad nothing happened… i believe the Angels have been protecting him that day and Angels watch over all the children in the world…everyday!

    Thank God nothing had happened!. I hope it won´t happen again in the future, bahaya juga kan. If not fast car passing, it might be someone bad, kidnap anak2…ih bikin takut kan.

    Saya pun macam kau if i walk with my boys, dua2 aku pigang kuat2, left and right because i never trust them, if i let go sure punya terus lari dari mama…

    I have been in the same situation like yours a few times. Children is such that they tend to do the opposite of what you advice them. Anywhere, glad that there is someone above looking out for them.

    yes ray.. if you tell them repeatedly of what is wrong.. they tend to do it again and again… children are like that.. our responsibility as an adult to take care of them … yes.. i believe Angels always protecting them..

    OMG Thank God sis nothing happened!!

    So proud of you sis, it happened to me too with Aaron that I almost broke down and cried in front of everybody. It was devastating to know kids don’t know the danger until they are come close to it. It’s the only way they learn from their mistakes… so perhaps that day did good to your Sean. Don’t despair too much sis, our kids will continue to do mistakes until their learn from it.

    Hugs to you and your precious… Oh my I missed them heaps. xoxo

    sis mel… children tend to do what excite them without knowing the danger… and i believe they will still do what they pray to god everyday to give guidance and protection.. and give us strength to perform our responsibilities..
