I was getting all set to post a message about those stupid chair pockets and how I'm trying to fix them so that my kids' books will stop dumping onto the floor everyday. Then the phone rang and when I answered it, it was the school district sending out an alert that there was an attempted abduction of a middle school girl walking home from school.
My oldest daughter is in middle school, and I have been so trusting with having her walk home from the bus to an empty house every day.
I will not be sleeping well tonight. There is no measure of protection that would make me feel secure about my children this evening.
