Today we went to Popular bookstore to get some stationery. While browsing for some files, Reese decided to test his own bravery by walking away a short distance from me and hurried back to find me. I told him to stay close and was quite cautious making sure I knew where he went.
He was enjoying himself. After a couple of times of disappearing and appearing, I begin to relax and continue browsing for files and minutes later I realized that Reese did not appear and I thought he could be playing at the children's section. Another few minutes passed and I still did not see him, so I quickly went over to the kids area but couldn't find him. I started to panic... calling his name and the next thing I knew, I heard a kid crying and immediately knew it was Reese. I ran out of the children's corner and found Reese walking hand in hand with a security guard. He was crying and mumbling "I lost my mummy" repeatedly. Phew!
After Reese stopped crying I asked him what happened and he said:
"Mummy, I lost you and I went to a person who was not a bad man to help me find mummy!"
**At least he knew how to seek help! :)
