January 17, 2018 | Those scary-parent moments happen here and there, & I knew it was only a matter of time until we needed to have a talk about hiding from me in a store. We began playing in the rug-display (she was a cat, of course) and it was a perfect area to hide in. I told her to stay in the rugs, but of course she was having so much fun she disappeared. I was crawling around in all of the rugs looking for her, calling her name, imagining all of the worst-case scenarios. Several minutes passed, when I finally spotted her several aisles away. She had wandered into the chair section for an even BETTER place. I think she knew from my face that I was not having any fun, and I hugged her SO TIGHT. Long conversation after that had to happen, and she apologized a lot. Parenthood is not for the faint of heart!
