I think he was answered the comment that said "Your daughter is safe and sound, so update us on the hunt.".

Can't we just be civil to one another? Is it that much to ask?

Thanks for posting OP. Wait till your a Grandparent and when you're in charge you still have to remember stuff. We all do the best we can and if you've been on this site for any amount of time theres a million mistakes made. Those who are criticizing are not in your position. If your post makes one person go through a checklist then it was well worth it. Don't beat yourself up and don't let the haters bring you down. They haven't walked in your shoes......It was a mistake and your honesty will help others....

I have to live by routine. Every time I leave the house, I tell myself - phone keys wallet, phone keys wallet, phone keys wallet. Too many distractions otherwise.

My new thing is that I cant remember if I locked the car or not after parking it. Need to update my routine.

Pretty soon, I’ll need a pre-flight checklist just to leave the house.

I think it all boils down to just having too many distractions, too many fragmented thoughts and a lack of focus.

Funny you should mentioned that because adam sandler came out with a song about remembering his belongings before he leaves the house. I'll see if I can find it.

Lawyers would suggest, never admit any mistakes/fault publicly. Always seek legal counsel when/if you do make a mistake. Do not discuss with anyone but legal counsel. They will explain how these things have a way of resurfacing and biting you in the ass later. This is a free one....

Not sure I ever met a perfect parent. Apparently there are a few on THT - but that's not a shocker.

That's not the way I read it. More like an experienced PSA.

Glad this a good ending.

It was great of you to share. You had your scare. Sharing will help someone else not do similar.

You did well teaching to use the horn.

I have a cousin that is mentally retarded due to a high fever from measles when young. His mental state is about like a 10 ur old and not able to form sentences. He was taught to use the horn if anything bad happened. He was helping his younger brother cut firewood and a tree limb came down and hit the brother I'm the head. It got late and Uncle and other cousins went to look for them as they were overdue. It got dark and they located the because he blowed the horn and blinked the lights. He is about 64 65 now. The hurt brother s brain swelled and left with little control over one side of his body, but he is still here. Not likely if l
much more time passed to find him.

Little things go a long ways.. I know in today's world its hectic, but try to slow down every chance you get. We miss a lot of life's flavor when we hurry.

Am I the only one that's ever:
1. Lost Phone
2. Forgot beer cooler on dock
3. Misplaced a small child
4. Let my dog ride in the back of the truck
(which I've heard on THT is super irresponsible and cruel)

Interesting that some people cannot comprehend the written word. No one forgot anyone. Two people made assumptions based upon previous acts. Mom assumed both kids went inside and to their rooms because that is what they always do and she saw one do it. Dad assumed Mom took care of kids because that is what Mom always does. Neither forgot they have kids.

I can easily see it happening. No one is perfect, but some are just luckier than others. Heck, I remember I was playing with my daughter when she was probably three in the back yard of the house. I look down and see a bee fly under the deck so I go check it out to see if there is a hive. I look up 10 seconds later and daughter is nowhere to be seen. I yell out her name. Nothing. I run around the backyard, the sideyard, out front and nothing. Now panic has set in and I am screaming. She comes around the corner having been playing hide and seek staying one side of the house ahead of me. Calm to panic to absolute relief all within 30 seconds.

My youngest daughter, I have two, at 24, never misses an opportunity to remind me how I forgot to pick her up at dance when she was little; I keep reminding her I didn't forget.

Yes. The rest of us are perfect little angels.

Sucks to suck.
