Fears


When it comes to my children I have lots of fears.
My top eight list would include:
1. being kidnapped.
2. choking on food...especially when I am not with them.
3. drowning
4. being abused in anyway by someone.
5. hit by a car.
6. stop breathing.
7. severe illness/disease.
8. something happening to me and Brad leaving them alone.

Number 8 only comes up when we go somewhere without the children.
We have been asked to come and teach at a regional fsa conference....my first instinct is to say "YES!". I love working in fsa. But then that darn fear kicks in and I worry. But I also don't want to go without Brad...hence the dilemma.
The answer will actually depend a large part upon what Spencer's pediatrician says about traveling with him. I am not ready to leave my baby....not at all. Especially when he had such a rough start. So we will see what the doc says.

I just wondered....do you guys worry about these things too?
Am I just a paranoid freak?

I don't think you are a freak - but I'd like to introduce you to a great website for worried parents... www.freerangekids.com.

Nope, not paranoid. I've been having dreams lately about us losing our baby, and one time on a road trip my baby was being so quiet I had a minor panic attack thinking that I had left her somewhere, but babies don't exactly wander off. I had to reach back and check to make sure she was there before i calmed down. So strange!

I'm so glad to know I'm not the only one out there! My husband and I both especially worry about items 1 and 4. We would much rather lose a child to a deadly disease than to an evil predator.
