Dear Phantom BabyNappers,
I hate you. I loathe you. I see you lurking outside of my house at night secretly waiting for my husband & I to loosen our guard to let you take our son. I know that as soon as Lboy is sound asleep a silent alarm goes off in your babynapping compound & you all pile into some stupid Chester Chester Child Molester Mobile. I know that you are after him, my precious angel. Just know I see you, just know I’m watching, just know you can’t have him.
I hate you. I loathe you. I see you too. I see you every time I put my son down to sleep. I feel you as my lungs feel the sharp pangs of fear that you will take him too. I hate that I have panicked thoughts about a stuffed animal in a crib because “Lboy could roll over, his mouth could land on the dogs belly, the fur of the dog could cause him to stop breathing….” This is usually when you make me jump up like a mad woman & go running to his crib & make sure he is still there alive & well.
I hate & loathe you the most. I hate that you keep me up at nights fearing ghostly shadows in the form of those damn babynappers. I hate that you have me checking the monitor so I can hear breathing sounds every.chance.I.get. I hate that you have me mistrusting the 90 year old man in the parking lot with tennis balls on his walker, HIS WALKER, for goodness sakes. I know he’s after my baby.
Or the girl eyeing me at the park, I know she’s emotionally deranged & is going to come after my baby, her pink butterfly tattoo told me so. Or the ice cream truck that plays that creepy “Do your ears hang low” song–this is the ultimate Chester Van. I know that the secret society of child molesters/babynappers are behind ice cream trucks. And I know they are after my baby.
Screw you anxiety! You are to blame for this!
To all three of you–you can not have me.
A Mama Who Won’t Take It
False Expectations Appearing Real= FEAR
Did you struggle/deal with this when you were a first time mom? Does it ever leave?! 🙂
Obviously under construction right now! Don’t judge the mess!
