The Restless Hour

We were at the park enjoying brunch when Sid suddenly realized that our little one was not around.

It is not a big park but the incidents these days make the heart flutter with fear. Panic entrapped we took to different directions but soon started back without a result.
Just when we were near our picnic spot little snorts caught our attention. Going around the tree, we received the best gift of our life as we saw our little cub napping on his teddy blanket.

Sometimes fears blur our thought process to rationally interpret the events.

    1. The pleasure is all mine linking up here.
      It is only after I became a mom did I realize why my mother has that panic stricken voice if we would not call her after a few days. I face the same situation with my toddler. So mothers (parents)have an in built worrying stimuli irrespective of the age of their child. 'LOVE'

  2. The horrible things that can go through your mind, that sense of panic, is all to real to parents. Glad this story had a sweet ending.

    1. These are the times that brain cannot over power the heart. No matter how practical a person is, some is lost during such times. Thanks Val.

  3. Ohhhh I've had that panic before when I was looking after Niece and Neff, and couldn't find Niece at the playpark, and ALL THE BAD THOUGHTS were flying a million hours through my mind before I saw her playing on the slide at the other end of the play area.

    1. Ahh! that must have been so scary. That too when you are alone with the kids. Hope gets bleaker with each passing second during such times. Stay well!

  4. We lost our little one in a market many years ago but our anxiety was short when the loudspeaker announced her finding.

    1. Glad for you. The thought of losing sight of my little one makes me jittery. Having lived through that moment must have been so tough for you.

  5. I misplaced my son (hate to say lost) when he was three at a theme park. He was in a play area with multiple stories while I waited for him to come out. Only he didn't. I spent several minutes in sheer panic mode until he wandered out of a play area across the way. Seems they connected somewhere overhead, but I didn't know it. What a feeling of relief!

    1. During such times even seconds appear like days and with each passing moment the anxiety and negativity increases. It must have been celebration time when you must have met him. That feeling is universally share by all parents.

  6. These days, especially, it's too scary to lose sight of them for a second.

    1. That is so true. while we were growing up there were incidents but children did not have that fear neither did the parents. things are different now maybe as the neighborliness is decreasing and people around are more busy with themselves or their gadgets.
