I'm going to make my story short.... I've been hearing news and stories about children left alone in cars and people, even other parents judging and pointing fingers
Now, my kids are ok, but I need to share something with anybody willing to read...
The morning of the problem I woke up as usual very early and so did the girls. It was raining cats and dogs. We would have to wait for the rain to stop. I fell asleep, the girls didn't. I swear I could hear the laughing and giggling and being noisy, then something like a bad feeling in my gut woke me up. My oldest was "taking a shower" in the tub, all clothes off splashing water all over that bathroom. My youngest was there too, out of the tub, but there.
I have no idea how long I was sleeping or how long they were in that bathroom. It was for my kids an innocent game and to me was misbehaving. This happen some time ago, and for some reason, maybe all that talk about kids left in cars, this morning I woke up crying because I realized, yes only until now, that I could have lose my kids to a terrible accident. I was just tired, I am not perfect and I have no intentions of making excuses for my lack of energy, I was just so tired and all I could think of is my oldest not letting her little sister get in the tub because it was only for her...that moment of not sharing probably saved my baby's life and I have to thank my 3 yearl old for it.
I am not proud of what happened, and again, I am not making excuses, I am only sharing with you a real life experience so you realize that it could happen to anybody, even us the little bit overprotecting parents. I thank God and heaven for being able to hold my children in my arms, and I just wanted to show you that instead of pointing fingers, like I did once, I am doing my best as a mom but I am only human and I don't think any parent want ever to live the experience of outliving a child for a terrible accident.
My message to anybody who reads this: WAKE UP< ACCIDENTS HAPPEN
