We just came back from a mini-vacation, and while it was mostly fun, we also had a huge scare. On Saturday morning in our hotel room, DH was in the shower and I was getting ready. DH came out of the bathroom and we realized that we didn't see DS. (There were 2 separate rooms.) We thought he was hiding, but after a quick scan of the room we realized he was gone. He had unlocked the door and escaped.
I thought we'd find him in the hallway, but as we frantically ran up and down the hallway, we didn't see him. All of these horrible thoughts were racing in my head...what if someone pulled him into a room? Would the police lock down the hotel?
We took the elevator down to the first floor, and when the elevator door opened, there was DS. He was just standing there, holding the lid to our ice bucket. Completely oblivious. I can't believe nobody noticed a toddler alone and that he just got on the elevator by himself.
Definitely my worst nightmare since being a mom. Seriously -- this toddler is going to send me to an early grave.
