Writer's Workshop-NO! You can't take my daughter

The Prompts:
1.) Describe the worst diet you ever put yourself on.

2.) But teachers know everything!! Write about a time a teacher disappointed you.

3.) …And then you panicked.

4.) Signs that your little one is just not that into you anymore.

5.) 10 reasons why you’re glad it’s Fall.


 …And then you panicked.

You may be surprised to hear that I have been almost kidnapped at least twice, possibly three times. Yes, I'm serious.  One time was so scary my parents called the police.  I was a tiny, cute blond girl. Evidently we were in high demand on the black market. Or there were a lot of creeps in the ghetto of Dallas.  I don't know.

So I am always extra careful to teach my children safety and stranger danger.

One day, when Ashlea was about 11, we were walking into Wal-mart together.  She was walking a little ahead of me as we walked into the doors.  Several feet in front of us was a man.  His pace quickened and he began running straight to Ashlea. He was staring at her.  He even reached his hand out.

HOLY COW!  My blood pressure immediately escalated.  I reached out for Ashlea, just as he....passed us by.  I have no idea what that dude was doing.  But I had to change my pants.

Ashlea, do you remember when this happened?  Tell us your version of it.

And that's writer's workshop for the day.  I put so much time and effort into it.  Whew, I'm wiped.

Don't forget to enter my giveaway for The No-Cry Separation Anxiety book.  (Even older kids can benefit from this book.  AND it would make a great gift for a new mom.)
