A small request
A small request:
If you see a two year old sprinting away without an adult, and he is running through a parking lot next to a very busy street, please, STOP HIM! Even if you don't know him, or you actually see the mother trying to catch up with him while carrying a one year old, take a moment to catch that child.
Thankfully nothing happened to Max as I was turning in my rental car keys at the Toyota dealership where my van was being serviced, and Max decided to take off to find a pine cone without me knowing. But once Cameron alerted me, and I caught a glimpse of his tiny rear sprinting into the parking lot, I also saw that there were 2 people...men who just stood there watching him...who LET him run right by them into harm's way.
Now I am well aware that my child is my responsibilty and I should have had him under my control and not depend on everyone else around me to take care of him. I know that. But I just know if I saw someone's kid in danger, I would stop to help. Not too much to ask is it?
