last night! He had went to his friend's house, 3 houses away. He came back about an hour later and asked if he could spend the night there. The boys were in and out a couple times getting all his stuff and finally he was there for the night,(we thought!) DH and I went to bed around midnight and at 1AM, we were woken up by someone pounding on the front door. It was DS!!!! He had woken up and felt sick at his stomach so he woke his friend and told him that he was coming home. They didn't wake his parents or anything, He just walked home. Granted it isn't very far but what if someone had come along just then and grabbed him??!! Or, if the police cruised thru and saw him out, curfew violation, we all could have been in trouble! Poor kid, he didn't feel well and just wanted to come home but it really freaked us out! We told him that if it ever happened again to wake the parents and have one of them walk him home. What really gets me is that they never even checked on him today to see if he was ok or anything. If I had an child in my house when I went to bed and that child was gone the next morning,I would da** well be sure that they had gotten home ok and apologized profusely. I'm thinking that he won't be spending the night down there anymore!!! I'll let the boy come here but my son isn't staying there! What would they have done if he had gotten snatched last night? Maybe I'm being a bit paranoid but it's a reality of the world we live in!!
Dawn, who's DS is asleep in his own home tonight!!!
