    My mum lost me for about an hour in target (or somewhere like that) when I was about 3. They found my hiding inside one of those round clothes racks, pigging out on Easter eggs

    I lost dd2 at a shopping centre last year. I was holding her hand and suddenly she let go and I looked down and she was gone. She'd started following another woman. I was beside myself and fund her about 5 minutes later. Thankfully the woman she'd followed stayed with her. It was really awful my head filled with a thousand bad thoughts. Don't beat yourself up, it happens

    It definitely happens. I've lost DS at the shops twice in his life. Even two minutes can feel like two days and you never forget the heartstopping feeling

    I lost my son at the Easter show. I thought he was with my husband, but he wasn't. I saw him 2 minutes later.

    Every park should be enclosed IMO!

    I lost my DD in a carpark for about 30 seconds or a minute. She was standing right next to me but somehow managed to stay in my blind spot. Such an awful awful moment.

    ((hugs)) OP.

    Which experience would you like me to tell you about?

    Last year I lost my one year old at my daughter's school every single morning. I'm not even exaggerating. He is very little and I'd watch him go through people's legs and they'd move 2 seconds later and he'd be gone. It never took long to find him except for one time when he just disappeared and other mum's had to help my find him...he'd gone wandering off in a completely different direction in the school. I realise this makes me sound like a terrible parent but I'm not, he just has this amazing ability to disappear. I asked a mum I can trust to watch him for me one day and when I got back she looked a little bit shaken up. I asked her what was wrong and she told me she had lost sight of him for 30 seconds or so and kept swearing to me that she didn't take her eyes off him. I believed her because it is exactly what it was like for me.

    Then most recently was on the weekend. I went to a small park with a friend and we were watching our kids play. I was watching him play on a roundabout type of thing when my friend's daughter came up and asked me if I knew that someone else was cuddling my son. I said no and scanned the park and here was this woman cuddling my crying boy, who was happily accepting her comfort. She apologised and said he fell off the slide! I apologised to her and thanked her for comforting him and walked back to my friend red faced while two grandma's were laughing at me

    No one call DOC's on me...I'm not a bad mother I swear!

    My parents left me at the Royal Melbourne Show when I was 5, while I was on the ghost train!!!!

    My baby sister started carrying on and they got caught up in her and realised on their way back to the car that I was still on the ride!

    I got off, couldn't see them and so just waited till they came back. Was probably only 5 mins but I got very spoilt for the rest of that day!

    oh you poor thing. Thats my biggest fear. I remember being a child and my baby sister (about 2) vanished in a shopping center for over an hour. The whole center ended up on lock down and police were called. She was found by a little old lady, 5 floors down looking at the fish in the fish pond .

    My bestie and I lost her ds and my dd in her unit !! We were talking and realised it was a bit quite so went to check on them. We looked every where (small unit), under beds,lounge,cupboards, couldn't find them, called out to them, no answer. Thought they must of left the unit even thou we didn't hear the door so my friend took off out the door and down the stairs, ran out the front and other neighbors helped cause they heard us calling out. I kept looking and calling out in the unit. I looked under my besties bed...again...and saw something move so I had a much closer look and there they were under the bed, behind things !!
    Omg they got in soooo much trouble! It scared the life out of us. They were hiding for ten minutes !
