... Ever panic for a second thinking they've lost their children, when they're at childcare/school/grandmas/etc? (ie when you've deliberately left them somewhere perfectly safe). I'll be happily in my office working and my brain will suddenly think "hey DS isn't here. OMG WHERE IS HE??! oh right, he's at school. Carry on."
Or am I just crazy?
Anyone else have weird, unexpected things they think or do since being parents?

Yep happens to me a lot. I was at the airport yesterday alone and spent most of the time looking around for my kids who were home with DH.
I worry more since becoming aware of people leaving babies in cars and also as my youngest is a runner / hider. Stresses me out constantly.

I mainly do it when I have a day off at the shops. My toddler is with me 99% of the time when we are out. And he is someone who plays hide and seek in the shop.

*Puts hand up*.
I get this when my youngest is at Preschool as I am so used to having her around home. I will be going about my business and start panicking wondering why I haven't heard her in the house or will speak to her in the car, only to realise she's at Preschool!

I get this mostly when I have a rare occasion of ducking out without DS. I'll turn off the car, get my handbag etc and turn around to ask DS if he's ready and freak out at the empty car seat for a few seconds until it dawns on me! Too used to having him with me all of the time!

I check the car seat when i KNOW I've dropped him off at childcare already. Traumatised by those stories about fatal distraction and leaving kids in cars!

Yup I do it constantly. My 3 year old is a bolter/houdini so im constantly having to check where he is and I do it even if he's not with me.

I woke up panicking at 2am this morning, because I realised I had left the kids in the car. I ran in to their bedrooms like a mad woman, only to find them all sleeping peacefully, of course.

I don't think I've lost them but I wake up at night and freak out that they're in my bed and I've forgotten and then maybe rolled on them or they've become covered in the doona. I've nearly clawed DH's face off a few times in my panic! My kids only very rarely sleep in my bed so I don't know why I wake thinking they're in there. Guess I'm just a bit nuts!
