Okay - so at 7pm the whole family was home. I was on the computer and so was the hubby. The kids are watching tv. I walk in to the living room and there are the boys but no Jordan. She does go outside and play but she NEVER goes out without asking. I open the door to the garage - the garage is closed. That means she doesn't have her bike or roller blades. Front door is closed - if she goes out she usually leaves the door open as it always locks when it is closed. I open the front door and it is rainy out and I don't see her. I send Jackson up to the top of the cul-de-sac in case she is playing with the 3 little girls up there - of course not - nobody is outside it's raining. I make him knock on a few doors to see if she went inside. She NEVER goes in anybody's house and she knows the rules. We are calling her name. In the house I call her name thinking she might be in the playroom - no it is dark upstairs. Jackson and the neighbor boy come back - they found Jackson's skateboard but no Jordan. I then notice Jordan's bedroom door is closed. It is never closed. So, I go upstairs and there she is ASLEEP IN HER BED!!!!!
I'm sure I could have received an award for bad mother of the day - to seriously not notice you have a missing child. Fortunately she was only sleeping - so we'll save the award for another day. Have you ever lost your children?
