Oh where Oh where has my little son gone?

You know the song...

"OH where Oh where has my little son gone Oh where oh where can he be? He's in none of church rooms or on the church grounds OH where oh where can he be?"

OK so I wasn't quite singing this earlier today when I couldn't find Coleton. I know you are all surprised that He was missing. He is after all VERY stubborn and willful and mischievous and one track minded.
I have to sigh big and remember that these attributes are a good thing. Or will be someday.
So now I am sure you are all saying TELL THE STORY!!!!! well here it is....
I go to kickboxing every Tuesday and Thursday at the church. I love it!!! It is a good work out and my boys love to play with the other kids especially Coleton.
Remington goes to a reading group at the school every Tuesday and Thursday they happen to be at the same time. The school is close enough that Remington walks. Today was no different. Except that Coleton followed him and I didn't know.
So there I am at kickboxing I send Remington when it is time for him to go. A few minutes later I wonder
"Where is Coleton?"
I start to look and don't see him.
I look in every room and don't see him.
I start to panic because I don't see him.
I ask around to the other kids NO ONE has seen him.
I start to cry.
Then I pack Gage up.
Some sweet ladies offer to watch him while I look.THANK YOU!!!!!!!
I decide to head for the school hopeing and praying that he went with Remington after all he could be anywhere. I got to the school and every flipping door I tried was locked.
"He better be here or I am going to kill him when I find him" I am thinking to myself.
I finally get in to the school and head to the room where reading is held and Low and behold there he is HUGE SIGH OF RELIEF!!
I picked him up squeezed him asked him what on earth he was doing. Turns out he was entertaining the group.
Remington says we knew you'd figure it out. Coleton told me you knew he was coming with me.
AHHHHHHHHHH at least he is alive.

What a parent's worst nightmare! Oh, I'm so glad he was with Remington. That's so scary. I'm sure when you did find him you were so relieved (and then maybe wanted to scream?!). And don't you love the mind of a child, "I knew you would find him, mom. He said you knew he was with me." Ugh!:)

I'm glad you found him. Its the worst feeling in the world to not know where one of your kids has gone.
