Along a dark country road....
Last night my 3 year old came within inches of being struck by a car. We were on our way home from Wayne's house, and of course Adrian (3 yr.old) has to pee. We took the back country roads home, so Jeremy pulls over to the side, to let the kids (now they all have to pee) out to pee. Well, to make a long story short, Adrian had crossed the road, when a car came from the other direction, and sped by him, coming with inches of him. Thank God he was standing so still (going potty) and didn't step or move backward. I'm pretty sure the vehicle didn't even see him standing on the edge of the road, peeing. It could have been so bad, really Austin AND Adrian could have been hit. I almost had a heart attack. I couldn't get to him soon enough, I had to wait for the car to pass. I cried all the way home.
I have never been so thankful to tuck my 3 sweet little boys, and 1 sweet little baby girl into bed at night.
