A 6-year-old boy from NY was asleep in a running car when it was stolen from in front of a convenience store.

That is so scary. The last time I left my kids in the car was right after Jake was born. Left him and Will in the Jeep, cannot remember if it was running or not. Anyhoo, locked them in (safety first, LOL), but left the keys in the ignition (it must have been running, I guess) and ran into the gas station, came back out and of course didn't have a spare key on me. Will was just big enough to unbuckle out of his car seat and after about 10 minutes of trying, he managed to unlock the Jeep. So that would've been 2000, and I was certainly old enough to know better. Never again. Jake is 11 and wants to stay in the car sometimes, and I won't let him, even without the car running. People are freakin' crazy.

So glad the little boy is ok.

Oh my gosh, I am sure you were sweating bullets during the entire "open the door for Mommy" exchange!
