I was horrified over the weekend. We had just arrived at our local decent sized shopping centre. It was a wet day so fairly busy.
Shortly after we arrived I noticed a little girl walk past calling for her mummy. When I turned back around to check if she was ok she had wondered quite away and was still alone.
I left my DS1 & 2 in the pram with my mum and took off after her.
It took a good 10 minutes of searching to find her mum at which time we both burst into tears.
On reflection there were at least 50 - 100 people walk straight past the poor girl without blinking an eye.
Are we really so self absorbed to not notice a 3 year old girl alone in a shopping centre calling for her mum? I am horrified. We all know how quickly we can lose sight of our little ones and I would only hope that someone would stop and help my boys in that situation.
