Today we talked about being safe. We had a fire drill and explored the storm shelter. We even turned off all the lights in there and talked about how the shelter will keep us safe.
We went to the splash pad and fun was had.
They actually grew a little tired before 1130 so we packed out early . But before that and Ms Debbie had a lesson in stranger danger. 😳
I noticed part way through our morning that a gentlemen was walking by close to the children. He did not have anyone with him. I looked around and there was no family following him. He seem to just be eyeing the children . It made me VERY uncomfortable but he walked on toward the library. Holly had showed up with Kamden and I was talking to her and we both looked over and saw that he had settled on a bench just staring at our children.
I said “Do you know that guy? He’s creeping me out. “. Randy was sitting within 2 feet of him and the children were safe but it just made me so uncomfortable. I decided to go over and talk to him. ( At this point I honestly was a little nervous and every scenario in my head was playing. What if he gets mad when I insinuate he should not be watching my children? What if I ask him to leave and he doesn’t? I think I’ll just tell him that I’m very uncomfortable with him watching my children and I need him to leave . You name it and that scenario crossed my mind.). I took a deep breath and said “ Good morning. Can I help you ?” ( At least I think that’s what I said ). At this point he pulled down his mask.
It was Chris Hinslee’s dad . 😬
I can’t tell you how I relieved I was to see somebody behind that mask that I actually knew . I told him he was this close to being tackled .
I have never had this happen before and I hope it never happens again But at least I know that my love for children makes me braver than I think I am . 😊
