In my day!
Happy Sunday to my blog world. I was thinking about trying to get some playtime together with some other kids for Baylee because I am concerned that she doesn’t like playing with other kids. She prefers to only play with adults. Yes she is just two and for now an only child but I don't want her to be that kid in kindergarten who doesn’t know how to socialize with other kids. Anyway back to the matter at hand I was think how old would Baylee have to be before I would feel comfortable letting her walk to a friends house, or meet at the playground alone, hell even meet a friend at the mall? I watch SVU I know what can happen and I frequently check the sex offenders registry so I can memorize those sickos faces and make sure there is no-one hanging around my house. I am a paranoid parent fine. I was raised however to walk to my friends house to play, I would go in the woods and disappear for hours and hours just playing or walking around with a friend all when I was in grade school. If Baylee disappeared for hours in 3rd grade I think I would have a panic attack. I do not however want to scare her so much from the world that she is afraid to enjoy it because those were some of my favorite times growing up. So I am somewhere lost in the middle and I need guidance when is okay to let them out? How do I know that she will come home safe? How the hell did my mom do it with 4 of us... I guess things were just different in my day!
