The Panic Attack

We have out of town company in town. They got here Friday afternoon and are leaving Monday morning.

Mom decided since it is so close to Thomas’s birthday that she’d throw a bit of a family party Friday night. I got to mom’s house around 1PM, with the boys, to help her out.

She had to leave to take Rachel, my sister to the quick minute clinic at Krogers because my sister had pink eye.

Well, it turned out to be an ulcer in her eye and this involved the afternoon at the eye doctor.

The boys and I were left alone at mom’s house.

I decided to put Luke down for a nap. He screamed and screamed and screamed. Just when I thought he’d finally fallen asleep, he’d scream some more.

I finally rescued him from bed but I didn’t know what to do with him. I don’t know how to entertain my kids at my moms. So I put him on my mom’s bed and watched Tv. I gave him a few things he could play with including the remote without the batteries but he still did a bunch of cranky, in need of a nap screaming.

So I panicked

And had a panic attack.

By the time mom got home I pretty much handed her my youngest and she took over for the rest of the night.

This is why I’m not allowed alone with my children. I’m not currently mentally competent enough to handle situations where I’m alone with them and don’t know what to do.
