For all you parents out there who feel they are scaring their kids with repetitous safety reminders or feel like such a broken record that you don't know if they are listening, here's a story for you.
I lost my 4 year old in Storyland amusement park in N. Conway, NH last week. He was right behind me while I argued with his brother and then he wasn't.
I found him about 3 minutes (felt like hours though!!!!) later talking with a woman with kids. He had done everything I had always told him to do. Find a mommy with several kids or a baby. Tell her you are lost. Do not let her hold your hand or touch you. Do not leave the area with her or anyone else until Mommy comes.
The woman told me that he would only tell her his first name, his mommy's name and that he had 'lost me right here' so he had to "stay here to wait for me." When I saw him, he was just lifting up the edge of his shirt with my cell phone number written on tape inside his shirt.
Not that I ever want to lose my son, but what a wonderful feeling to know that my son followed my directions in an emergency!
BTW: He had also just taken his first police-sponsored RAD class this spring.

What a great story. I will bet that there was lots of ice cream involved after the incident. I can't imagine how you must have felt until you found him again.
