Ah, the emotions that wandering kids can evoke. "and, of a certainity,he did." Loved that line. Good job.
Cute story evoking emotions all parents go through when a child isn't nearby in a store. I almost expected him to be dressed in women's undergarmens, though. Picture that. :)
I could identify with this piece. One of my boys actually got lost once in O'Hare airport. Yikes!

It's so easy to forget how very precious something is to us until it threatens to be lost. Thanks for the accurate depiction.
How devastating. I really thought he would be found asleep under one of racks of clothing. My loss! Glad he was found safe and sound.
Loved the descritive feelings in this. I could feel my stomach raging and head poundng in rhythm. This was a delight to read becuase it was wrtitten with choice words and a flow that didn't bog the reader down, Great job!
Thank you for your kind comments. The experience, though devastating at the time, has certainly given me a new perspective and a profound respect for motherhood.
